Israel and Comics / Discussing the Details

This Sunday (April 17th), Dan Friedman (Arts and Culture Editor of The Forward) will host a discussion titled "Israel and Comics: Beyond Black and White" about the challenges facing many Jews today, simultaneously hugging and wrestling with Israel.

Here's the official description :

While comics are often drawn in black and white, the work in Graphic Details shows that the relationship of North American Jews to Israel is anything but. With deep affection and sincere struggle these artists illustrate the intertwining of the personal and political, from Sarah Glidden’s conflicted experiences on a Birthright Trip to Miriam Libicki’s service in the Israeli army as “the least-kickass soldier in all of comics.”

Presented in association with the exhibition Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women.

The Toronto exhibition is being presented by the Koffler Centre for the Arts.

Time : 7:00 PM
Location : The Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen Street West

Earlier in the day, there will be a program titled "Discussing the Details with Graphic Details Artists"

Toronto-based artists Bernice Eisenstein and Sarah Lazarovic, featured in the Graphic Details exhibition will discuss how graphic storytelling became the medium for narrating their own life experiences. Moderated by Dan Friedman, Arts and Culture Editor of The Forward, the Media partner for Graphic Details.
