The exhibit questions the connections between the artists of the last sixty years and the aesthetics of comics and narrative graphics. It shines light on the work of certain illustrators of comic strips employing alternative styles emanating from the underground comics, and illustrators whose work deliberately deviates from the expectations of the constraints of mass culture.
Through drawings, paintings, sculptures, videos, music and documents by over thirty artists from the 1960's to the present day, Comics Trip! displays several generations of artists engaged in deconstructing our relation to official taste and to beauty, disintegrating the frontiers between 'great art' and popular culture, whose work is influenced by the sub-cultures that they share time and space with, and which they have in turn contributed to.

The artists:
Carlos Amorales, David B., Jean-Michel Basquiat, Abdelkader Benchamma, Vaughn Bode, Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes, Bonnie Collura, Robert Combas, François-Xavier Courrèges, Robert Crumb, Julie Doucet, Marcel Dzama, Mark Fischer, Tatsuo Ishida, Daniel Johnston, Mike Kelley, Patrice Killoffer, Tiziana La Melia, Arnaud Labelle-Rojoux, Bertrand Lavier, Roy Lichtenstein, Francis Masse, Jean-Christophe Menu, Steven Parrino, Raymond Pettibon, Syers Rob, Mark Shippy, David Shrigley, Youth Sonic, Maple U.S., Gala Vanson, Jean-Luc Verna, Chris Ware, Lawrence Weiner, Rose Wylie, Naoko Yurikusa, Andrea Zittel.
