> DESCRIPTION

Please join us for the Artists' Talk with moderator Calvin Reid on Saturday the 2nd of October at 4pm. A reception for the artists follows, 5 to 7pm.

The exhibition premiers drawings by Inverna Lockpez and Dean Haspiel and examines the artmaking process and history behind a much heralded graphic novel published this fall by DC Comics.

The exhibition assembles original drawings, sketches and revisions by the noted Brooklyn based artist Dean Haspiel, and pages from CUBA: My Revolution. The 1960’s Cuba drawings by Inverna Lockpez, who collaborated on the project and whose life story inspired the new graphic novel, have never been exhibited in the U.S. These drawings date from an era when Inverna’s other works were confiscated by Castro’s government. Some of her works have been lost, presumably destroyed. This group of drawings were returned to Inverna thanks to help from a circuitous network.
