    Liniers in Conversation with Steve Brodner

    Liniers in Conversation with Steve Brodner

    Superstar Argentine cartoonist Liniers, whose MACANUDO strip appears daily in La Nacíon, in conversation with political cartoonist Steve Brodner. In the aftermath of Charlie Hebdo, with the politics of cartooning discussed more than ever, Liniers and Brodner will take up the topic of the cartoonist's job, whether his/her work is overtly political like Brodner's, or intentionally non-political like Liniers' daily strip. For as we all know, even even work that is not explicitly political is underpinned by an ethos and a strong point of view onto life––both inward and in the social-public space.

    An evening of fun, outspokenness and big personalities, which will allow all of us to dig into some deep thinking about strips, cartooning, and the lives of those living it.

    Katie Murray and Joe Maida: Picture Consequences

    Katie Murray and Joe Maida: Picture Consequences

    Picture Consequences is the culmination of a 90-day photographic conversation in which Joseph Maida and Katie Murray exchanged new and archived pictures online. Taking into consideration the rise of the Internet as the primary platform for ‘reading’ photographs and the current zeitgeist of working among genres and formats, Maida and Murray’s resulting exhibition re-contextualizes
    their work and attests to their shared belief in the power of photographic pictures as potent language, metaphor, riddle and game.
