A COMICA REVIEW BY:

KULTURE FLASH


KultureFlash is a free, weekly newsletter covering happenings and openings in and around London. The following review appeared in the Kulture Flash blog in 2004.

Art Spiegelman has described how he despises the fact that there’s no place for the comic book as artwork. Neither word nor image, it sits in that wonderful place that’s both serious and playful, great art and wonderous pop, both high and low. Yet childhood’s escape is now slowly being infiltrated by more adult, existential questions with images that are more for the artistic eye than the youthful one. With Comica, the ICA is doing what it does best: reaching out to culture’s fringe. In collaboration with the Institut Francais—and in its second edition—this is an opportunity to see, read and hear about the latest hot things working between image and word.
