Chris Ware, the art of memory

Chris Ware the art of memory

Until October 10, 2022, the Public Information Library of the Center Georges Pompidou is hosting a retrospective dedicated to the work of American comic book artist Chris Ware, winner of the 2021 Grand Prix of the International Comics Festival of Angoulême for all of his work. He is also the guest of the 10th edition of the Formula Bula Festival. A fascinating dive into his artistic universe and his memory.

His name resonates in the comic book world with admiration, sometimes with reverence. Now 55 years old, Chris Ware received last year the supreme award in the world of comics, the Grand Prix de la Ville d’Angoulême.

Is he an author, an architect, a craftsman, an artist? Maybe all four at the same time. In this fall, Chris Ware is one of the many guests of the 10th edition of the festival Formula Bula the Parisian rendezvous that has become a field of discovery and rediscovery of international comic strip scenes.

He also exhibits at the Public Information Library of the Center Georges Pompidou. An emblematic place in the city of Paris, a setting that is both popular and prestigious where one can discover a retrospective that shows his inventiveness, his love of detail and precision, his perfectionism; and which leaves plenty of room for the original boards and objects.

The exhibition dedicated to Chris Ware is to visit until October 10, 2022.
