Curated by Josh Santospirito, Read To Me will feature the work of Paul Peart-Smith (Cygnet/UK), Alyssa Bermudez (Hobart/USA), Tony Thorne (Hobart), Leigh Rigozzi (Koonya), Vivienne Cutbush (Hobart), Lucy Adelaide (Hobart), and Meg O’Shea (Sydney).
Each of these artists creates personal, thoughtful, occasionally heartbreaking, sometimes hilarious works for adults, skillfully manipulating the comics medium to create powerful, moving content. Their work addresses political themes, issues of identity, memory, and place, and range in form from comic journalism, to philosophy, fiction and biography.
