Our Comics, Ourselves at the University of Connecticut

June 14 – August 22, 2016

The Archives & Special Collections at the University of Connecticut will host the first traveling installment of the exhibition Our Comics, Ourselves co-curated by Jan Descartes and Monica McKelvey Johnson. The exhibition premiered at Interference Archive in January, and we’re really excited to see it move on to new locations. Our Comics, Ourselves features comics from the Interference Archive collection as well as private collections on loan.

Audio Interference 12: Elvis B. & Jan Descartes

“I just remember when I was first making comics, it just felt really powerful. It’s kind of like that feeling when you first start riding a bike.” – Jan Descartes

Audio Interference 11: Leela Corman

“I really wanted people to understand what the past was. At its base level, this is what happens when women have to use a coat hanger when they need an abortion.” -Leela Corman

Join us for a very special presentation by A.K. Summers, who will discuss how alternative comics and queer zines share a common punk/DIY ethos as well as subject matter which often celebrates pulp, the misanthropic, oppositional, outlandish and unnatural. She will connect these and other influences in her work, as well as her own comic zine from the 1990s, Negativa, and eventual long-form graphic novel Pregnant Butch (2014).
