Hajdu at Town Hall / Crumb at the Frye
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Robert Crumbevents 14 Apr 2008 12:39 PM

Please join us this Thursday, April 17 in welcoming David Hajdu to Seattle. A longtime friend of Fantagraphics, Hajdu is the author of The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic Book Scare and How it Changed America, which examines the hysteria surrounding the popularity of comics in the Cold War era. Hajdu is music critic for the New Republic and author of Positively 4th Street. He’ll be speaking on the subject of “Outsiders in the Panels” at 7:30 at Town Hall, 1119 Eight Avenue in Seattle. Tickets are $8 ($6 students), available at www.nextbook.org.

Also this Thursday evening at 7:00 PM, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery’s resident curator Larry Reid will speak at the Frye Art Museum, 704 Terry Avenue in Seattle. Reid will present a slide lecture on the topic “WEIRDOS: Seattle’s Alternative Comics Culture in the Context of R. Crumb’s Underground.” If you have yet to see the phenomenal Crumb exhibition at the Frye, this represents one of the last opportunities to view this comprehensive collection and explore Crumb’s considerable influence on comics in the Northwest. Admission is free. Reid assures us that you’ll get your money’s worth. More info at 206.622.9250.

And don’t miss Drew Friedman’s amazing exhibition “The Fun Never Stops!” continuing through May 6 at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, 1201 S. Vale St. in Seattle.

Hope to see you all soon.

Comics Forum, R. Crumb's Underground, Frye Museum, 03/27/08

More Flog! Photo Friday, this time with audio! Last night at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, moderator Gary Groth was joined by Peter Bagge, Ellen Forney, and Jim Woodring for a lively discussion about Robert Crumb and a range of related topics. More photos can be seen on Flickr, in regular and slideshow styles.

Plus! Download the complete audio of this event (24.5 MB MP3). It's a bit low-fi, but mostly intelligible. (We are still working on bringing you a full-fledged podcast... stay tuned for that.) We've also archived this feature on our website at this page.

Jeremy Eaton on the Crumb Exhibit

Jeremy Eaton wrote up the big Crumb show here in town for the Beacon Hill News. Nice piece, better than any of the major media coverage I've seen.

Forney on Crumb Show
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert CrumbEllen Forney 31 Jan 2008 11:16 AM

Over at the Stranger's website, our own Ellen Forney has teamed up with the Stranger's Kelly O to talk about the R. Crumb show that just opened at the Frye Museum here in Seattle. I haven't had a chance to listen yet, but I will be listening and so should you. 

I could go on and on about how great the Crumb exhibition is, but simply put, it might be the greatest comic art exhibition I've ever seen and if you like comics enough to read this blog and are anywhere near Seattle, you're out of your mind if you don't make a special trip to the Frye in the next two months.  

And speaking of Forney, we have this to look forward to next Saturday, Feb. 9:

"Seeing that exhibit silenced a gong that's been ringing in my head for 45 years."

Our Eric Reynolds made the scene at the Frye Museum for the gala opening of "R. Crumb's Underground" and has the photos to prove it -- click here for the whole set on Flickr.

I also uploaded a few of Eric's photos from Ellen Forney's talk at Comixtravaganza -- see those here.

The Conversation Series: R. Crumb
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert Crumb 22 Jan 2008 11:44 AM

I just picked up this neat little book that I hadn't heard a thing about: The Conversation Series Vol. 1: R. Crumb & Hans Ulrich Obrist. I've only just started reading; it's small, 50-page chapbook featuring the transcript of an interview conducted with Crumb in Paris a couple years ago by the curator and editor Hans Ulrich Obrist. I'm only five pages in, but I can already recommend it, beginning as it does with a great discussion about the sorry state of contemporary architecture and how we got here. It's somehow reassuring to know that Paris is just as fucked as my neighborhood in Seattle when it comes to tearing down history so we can have more soulless condo complexes and big box retailers.
