Modern Cartoonist: The Art of Daniel Clowes
1000 Oak St.
Oakland, CA 94607
Do you take your comics with a side of irony? If so, visit the first-ever survey of Daniel Clowes' work. Though Clowes—the man behind Ghost World, Wilson, and Mr. Wonderful—has won critical acclaim for his comics, graphic novels, and screenplays, never before has he been feted with a museum exhibition. Follow the trajectory of the Oakland-based artist's career, as you peruse over 100 of Clowes' colorful pieces, and admire his uncanny ability to juxtapose the kitschy, the grotesque, and the surreal in his work.
