1pm - 3pm
The Ninth Art?
Sat 19 Oct 2013 - 18:45 - 20:00
The French refer to comics as ‘The Ninth Art’. In the inspiring setting of the Abbot Hall Gallery, an international panel will discuss this European perspective on comics, their coming of age in the UK and what the future holds. Is comic art a legitimate medium which can stand on its own two feet? How is it viewed within the visual arts and literary worlds (and does it matter?). Observer critic Rachel Cooke will explore these questions and more with, amongst others, Dan Franklin (Publisher of Jonathan Cape), Paul Gravett, Bryan Talbot, Joe Sacco and Posy Simmonds.
