Reframe Exhibition Launch
Pioneering artists from three contrasting countries unite to create an innovative exhibition of new work exploring our contemporary attitudes to Europe. Bringing together new voices from Turkey, Algeria and the UK, Reframe invites nine emerging artists to use their distinctive styles and viewpoints to 'reframe' perspectives through a series of new graphic short stories that examine the cultural, social and political dynamics between Europe and each of the participating countries.
At this launch event for the exhibition we'll be hosting a panel discussion between artists and curators involved in the exhibition, exploring the role comics can play in discussion of free expression, human rights and our attitudes to Europe.
You can book tickets for this event at the bottom of this page, although the exhibition is open to the public every weekday from 24th Oct to 22nd Nov. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The artists taking part in Reframe include:
From the UK: Hannah Berry, Daniel Locke and ILYA
From Algeria: Sofiane Belaskri, Mahmoud Benameur and Soumeya Ouarezki
From Turkey: Naz Tansel, Murat Mıhçıoğlu and Cem Özüduru
Reframe: European perspectives through comics from Algeria, Turkey and the UK is presented by Comica, Istanbulles with Studio Rodeo, FIBDA, and Free Word in association with ARTICLE 19 and Booktrust and supported by the European Cultural Foundation.
