• Parrish Perspectives: Jules Feiffer
    Kill My Mother

    March 15, 2015 to April 26, 2015

More than 140 large scale ink and watercolor drawings Jules Feiffer created for his first-ever full scale graphic novel demonstrate how, at the age of 85, this world renowned cartoonist has established an entirely new artistic direction. The installation takes viewers on a journey through Feiffer’s complex noir drama, and offers a unique opportunity to see and experience the artist’s creative process. In addition, Feiffer has created a dozen new drawings that function as wall texts guiding the audience through the story.

Jules Feiffer: Kill My Mother is made possible, in part, by the generous support of The Maurice Sendak Foundation, Jean Albano Broday/Jean Albano Gallery Chicago, Louise Kerz Hirschfeld, Stephen and Mina Weiner, and those who wish to remain anonymous.

Additional support for Parrish Perspectives is provided by the Herman Goldman Foundation.

Parrish Perspectives is a series of concentrated exhibitions that offers the Museum opportunities to respond spontaneously and directly to unique ways of thinking about art, artists, and the creative process.

Additional Parrish Perspectives exhibitions include:

Robert Dash: Theme and Variations

Joe Zucker: Life & Times of an Orb Weaver
