Discover the rich and innovative world of comic creation in this unique exhibition of 100 women comic artists. The original artwork cuts across genres and generations – from the 1800s to the present day; from observational comedy to surreal fantasy, challenging biography to subversive dissent.
From their early incarnations as newspaper strips to today’s webcomics, zines and award-winning graphic novels, comics have evolved into a complex and literary form. Women have been present throughout this evolution, creating some of the most defining works of the medium.
Comix Creatrix: 100 Women Making Comics is the largest ever exhibition of leading female comic artists. The exhibition highlights 21st century work by British creators, as well as recognising groundbreaking works from 19th and 20th centuries.
The display will feature artists such as Marie Duval, Tove Jansson and Audrey Niffenegger, and works including Nina Bunjevac’s Fatherland and Isabel’s Greenberg’s Encyclopedia of Early Earth. Many of the pieces at the exhibition will be shown in public for the first time!
