MoRUS celebrates the subversive power of comics with a group show of works by artists who participated in ABC No Rio’s Comix as Political Expression course at the museum. "Fighting Words: Political Pictures (New Voices in Comix)" will open on Saturday, March 19 with a reception beginning at 4 pm. The show will be available for viewing through Sunday, April 3 on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 6 p.m., or by appointment.Participating artists are Yasmeen Abdallah, Mark He, Annabelle Heckler, Vanessa Glynn, Sam Johnston, Ariel Kleinberg, Adi Talwar, Seth Tobocman and Tamara Wyndham.
Varying in focus and medium, the works were created during the ABC No Rio course led by Tobocman at MoRUS in the fall of 2021. The exhibited works grapple with and uplift contemporary social and political struggles from the climate crisis, police brutality and worker organizing to emotional and physical health and social isolation.
MoRUS is located at 155 Avenue C between 9th Street and 10th Street.
