ART SPIEGELMAN

CO-MIX: A Retrospective of Comics, Graphics and Scraps

February 16 to June 9, 2013
Co-produced by the Vancouver Art Gallery in collaboration with the Ludwig Museum, Köln

CO-MIX: A Retrospective of Comics, Graphics and Scraps was the first comprehensive retrospective exhibition of the

“comix” from the 1970s; his best-known and genre-defying work, Maus; and his more recent illustrations and
comic art, including his powerful response to 9/11, In the Shadow of No Towers.
