CAB Makes Its Formal “We’re On The Way” Announcement; Big Change In Venue Among Initial Declarations


Comic Arts Brooklyn sent an announcement out today making official their 2017 show and providing as much initial detail as they're able.

The show is November 11, from 11 AM to 7 PM.

The big news is a partnership with Pratt Institute, which will 1) make possible that there are twice as many participants, 2) that live paintings (by Steve Keene) and a video game related installation (by Babycastles) will be a part of the show, 3) make room for seven panel discussions.
"This year CAB will take advantage of Pratt's lecture facilities to host seven panel discussions with esteemed guests and established exhibitors. In addition to interviews with honored guests Chris Ware, Jules Feiffer, and Emil Ferris, CAB will feature panels spotlighting Pratt alumni including Bill Griffith (Zippy the Pinhead) and Peter Kuper (Spy vs Spy), Mark Newgarden and Paul Karasik's How to Read Nancy, "Identity in Comics," and a historical presentation of George Herriman's Krazy Kat by biographer Michael Tisserand.
Founder Gabe Fowler also named Matthew James-Wilson as a co-curator this year. James-Wilson is editor-in-chief at Forge.

Visit the festival's site for a full list of activities.

I hope to see many of you there.
