Brain Rot! @CMA
FCBD and SPACE are over but there's still comics in Columbus! ED Piskor's Brain Rot Exhibit is currently at the Columbus Museum of Art Until June 2.
Ed Piskor: Brain Rot presents original pen and ink drawings by Piskor which were used for comics publications. The exhibition includes more than thirty original pages from Hip Hop Family Tree, Piskor’s current project tracking the evolution of Hip Hop from its beginnings in the 1970s as a niche local subculture into the global phenomenon it quickly became. The first collected edition of Hip Hop Family Tree will be published by Fantagraphics this October. Ed Piskor began his comics career at age 21, drawing American Splendor strips written by underground comics legend Harvey Pekar. He has also published the graphic novel Wizzywig about the history of hacking and is currently publishing The Hip Hop Family Tree as a weekly comic at BoingBoing.net.
