MOMA discovers Scott McCloud theories
At New York’s Museum of Modern Art, highbrow meets lowbrow once more – and, as usual, doesn’t get it.
“Comic Abstraction: Image-Breaking, Image-Making” is organized by Roxana Marcoci, curator of the department of photography, and features "nearly 30 works in drawing, painting, sculpture, video and installation made over the last 16 years by 13 artists who borrow one way or another from comic strips, cartoons and animation."
That’s right, all the artists swipe from the comics format without once considering the point of comics — to tell stories. Some of us believe everything that can be explored about the form was already done in Lichtenstein’s day, which is why some of us will never exhibit in the Museum of Modern Art.
