5-29 April 2011. This exhibition focuses on an Atelier of Illustration and Visual Narration coming from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Liege, France.
Drawing such as comics used to be considered a sector for children. Illustration contributes to the training of the youngest: it stimulates their imagination through terrifying, poetic or funny stories and images. But illustration is much more than this and is not limited to a young audience.
In fact, since 1985 the so called graphic novel or visual narration widened its horizons thanks to Hugo Pratt, Marjane Satrapi and Art Siegelman among others.. The fields of sequential art started evoking Egyptian hieroglyphs, tapestries Bayeux, movies by Charlie Chaplin, work by William Blake, mythologies, the art of the novel and more generally sectors of literature that are reserved for an older audience.
