Comics Is A Medium, Not A Genre Exhibition
- Starts: 11:00 am on Tuesday, January 24, 2023

Comics is a Medium is exhibition debunking the myths that are just for kids and only about superheroes. Comics manipulate meaning by changing the two fundamental components: words and pictures. Comics change them by merging them into one unit that manipulates the meaning of words by adding pictures and vice versa. Makers and scholars of comics know Comics are a vehicle for creative storytelling. Stories, like Comics, can be anything. The work in this exhibition makes no conclusions about the relevancy or relative value of highbrow vs colloquial, superhero vs memoir, or kids comics vs adult. This exhibition makes the argument that comics are for kids, teens and adults, and everyone. Comics are an expressive medium that artists use to tell stories, and those stories can be anything; they are anything.
