THE MORGAN PREMIERES RICHARD McGUIRE’S GROUNDBREAKING GRAPHIC NOVEL, HERE, AND EXPLORES THE PROCESS BEHIND ITS CREATION
In 1989 Raw magazine published a black-and- white comic strip titled "Here" that was quickly recognized as a game-changer in the art of graphic narrative. Richard McGuire's thirty-six- frame strip is set in an ordinary living room, but it leaps freely through time, remixing history to produce encounters between past, present, and future inhabitants of the site. To mark the Fall 2014 publication of "Here" as an all-new, full-color graphic novel, the Morgan will premiere the first edition of the book and explore the evolution of this contemporary classic and the distinctive working method of the artist. From Here to Here: Richard McGuire Makes a Book opens on September 25 and runs through November 9, 2014.
