Artwork by Jules Scheele

"Sequential Self: Gender and Identity in Comics" showcases 12 artists whose work illuminates the complexity and intersectionality of gender and identity through autobiographical, historical, and fantastical narratives.

The exhibition features works by Rebecca Artemisa, Trinidad Escobar, Ashanti Fortson, Melanie Gillman, Levi Hastings, Christine Mari, Erin Nations, Ethan X. Parker, Jules Scheele, Christine Suggs, Sunmi, and Antoinette Thomas.

At the heart of "Sequential Self" is a love of comics and a desire to share the visual and written narrative of artists working in the genre. Mainstream comics have often favored cisgender white male voices, while creators who do not identify as such have remained at the fringes. However, in recent years there has been a steady turn towards inclusivity in both mainstream and indie comics, showcasing stories reflecting a variety of experiences, voices, and identities. As diverse creators have flourished and gained more followers, it is important that their voices are amplified and celebrated.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 21.
