(between 6th and 5th Aves) New York City

SPEECHLESS by Peter Kuper, a hardcover book published by Top Shelf (ISBN: 1-891830-14-7, $19.95), will serve as a catalogue for the excellent show. The exhibit will include cover illustrations, paintings, sculptures animation and wordless comics in Kuper's unique stencil style. Also featured are examples of Kuper's step-by-step process of illustration, a comic chronicling his experience serving as an expert witness in a landmark obscenity trial, as well as examples of his "Eye of the Beholder," the first comic strip to ever appear in the revered New York Times. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY says: "Peter Kuper [is] a passionately openhearted creator."-- Ken Tucker. PAPER MAGAZINE says: " Speechless more than defines one artist's vision, it reinvents the comics medium." -- Carlo McCormick

INX "FEVER LINES": 20-Year Retrospective
An exhibition of cutting edge editorial page drawings spanning the Age of Reagan past the World Trade Center disaster. The show offers highly opinionated perspectives on world affairs by nearly 50 internationally known illustrators in a variety of styles and techniques. From broad caricature to somber surrealism, from ink to paint to collage to computer, this work represents a wide range of moods and media. The show features the international perspectives of artists including Horacio Cardo, Felipe Galindo, Janusz Kapusta and Igor Kopelnitsky as well as the homegrown viewpoints of Yvonne Buchanan, Randy Jones, Thomas Kerr, David Klein and INX art directors Martin Kozlowski and Peter Kuper. This retrospective serves as an illustrated history lesson full of biting humor, surprising insight, startling images and extraordinary craft.
