Mark Newport will speak about his work. The talk will take place at the 5th Ave Cinema, 510 SW Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
"Newport works in and around an arena which, no matter how hip, still must be considered under the particular jurisdiction of the adolescent male: comics and the comic-book hero. However, he subverts the obvious appeal of violent conflict between forces for good and evil by accenting the decorative aspect of comic work via embroidery (over select faces and details) and through descriptions of a kinder, gentler alternate hero." - Anna Wilson
