Dave McKean’s UK Previews from ‘Nine Lives’ Sydney Opera House Project!

Posted: October 27, 2013

On Tuesday October 29th as part of Comica 2013 London International Comics Festival, Dave McKean will not only be talking to Comica Co-Director Paul Gravett about his recent and future projects, he will also be offering the first ever UK Previews of his ambitious new project entitled Nine Lives. Earlier this month, Dave was invited to Sydney Opera House, the prestigious venue for Australia’s most innovative multi-arts comics festival Graphic, where he performed on the piano and sung vocals to this exciting set of new illustrated and composed stories. To give you a flavour, the image below comes from Graphic’s Facebook album on Nine Lives.

Dave and Paul will also be in conversation about Gravett’s new book Comics Art from Tate Publishing, which features a number of his most innovative projects, including his Hypercomics installation ‘The Rut’. We’ll also have a limited supply of the very first advance copies of Comics Art available for purchase and signing in London! Book your tickets now online for £6 from WeGotTickets, or buy on the door subject to capacity.

Date: Tuesday October 29th
Time: 6.15pm for 6.30pm start, ends 8.30pm
Venue: Foyles Gallery, 3rd Floor, 117-119 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0EB
