Jeff Smith is best known for his all-ages comic Bone, but his past five years have been devoted to RASL, a science fiction adventure for adults. RASL is the epic tale of a hard-drinking, anti-hero art thief who jumps back and forth between parallel worlds to discover the secrets of famed scientist Nikola Tesla, as well as of his own life.
Organized in conjunction with Smith’s keynote presentation at our Mix 2013 Comics Symposium, this exhibition looks closely at the influences behind RASL—including music, literature, process artwork, and sculptural manifestations of the narrative
Also on view in the Canzani Center Gallery, Sept. 5–Oct. 4, Martha Colburn's Camera, Lights, Charge, Pop, Kirk Hayes' Rule by Fear, Gary Panter's The Magnetic Lady, and Toby Mott's Loud Flash: British Punk on Paper.
