Gymnasium: Archiving the City in Comics  (Public Programs)

From the illustrated culture of the nineteenth century to contemporary Afrofuturist visions, Americans have expressed a collective anxiety about cities--as well as aspirations about the city--in comics. Professor Julian Chambliss leads an open gym in which participants approach comics as a continually evolving archive of the modern urban experience. To explore how comics' special relationship to words and images have helped Americans imagine the city, audiences will create a comic zine that documents their experiences of city life, in conversation with Professor Chambliss's research and via exploration of museum exhibitions, Never Spoken Again: Rogue Stories of Science and Collections and John Lucas and Claudia Rankine: Situations.

Gymnasium is a platform for MSU researchers to share and develop emerging research in conversation with exhibitions at the MSU Broad.
