Lilli Carré at MCA

Lilli Carré along with Jeffrey Brown, Paul Hornschemeier, and Anders Nilsen are in a new show at Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago called "New Chicago Comics". This looks like an amazing show and a great chance to see some of Lilli's comics pages, drawings, and animation work in-person. According to MCA, "In their own unique styles each of these artists expands and challenges the conventions of a visual art form for which Chicago continues to be renowned: the comic book." It's only up until the end of January, so if you are living in Chicago or are visiting, stop on by and check out this show!
