DO YOU PAINT OR DRAW? A JOURNEY THROUGH ART, VIA COMICS

¿Pintas o dibujas? Un paseo por el arte de la mano del cómic

Soportes que muestran comic en la vía pública

This outdoor exhibition, organised by Acción Cultural Española and curated by Jorge Díez, approaches comic art through eleven Spanish authors –Ana Galvañ, Antonio Altarriba/Keko, Fermín Solís, Laura Pérez Vernetti, María Hesse, Mauro Entrialgo, Max, Pablo Auladell and Santiago García/Javier Olivares– who use their own particular languages to explore classic and contemporary art in their work, considering artists like Bosch, Velázquez, Buñuel, Frida Kahlo, Duchamp and Picasso, among others. The overview showcases the authors’ perspectives on a range of elements in the artistic sphere: exhibitions, museums, fairs, biennials, artists, curators, critics, institutions and audiences.

This collective exhibition consists of comic panels, comic strips and excerpts from albums by several of Spain's most prominent authors, born or based in different locations (Murcia, Extremadura, Madrid, Catalonia, Andalusia, the Basque Country, the Balearic Islands and Valencia), who paint a personal, diverse picture of the contemporary comic and illustration scene in Spain and abroad. Do you Paint or Draw? weaves together and breaks apart various thematic areas, inviting visitors to plot their own course and explore it based on their individual manner of understanding and enjoying the different offerings it brings together.

Organised in collaboration with Acción Cultural Española
