Fantagraphics Bookstore, in association with the Argentinian Ministry of Culture, is pleased to present Ezequiel Garcia on Saturday, March 25, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM. Garcia will discuss his new graphic memoir, Growing Up in Public from Fantagraphics Books.
Garcia’s book chronicles the personal and professional challenges he faces as a young artist in his hometown of Buenos Aires. He laments the loss of architectural landmarks and cultural heritage in the face of shrinking public support for the arts in his home country. His engaging narrative is sure to resonate in Seattle as we deal with remarkably similar issues in our region.
Fantagraphics remains committed to giving voice to artists of diverse cultures in these perilous political times. Ezequiel Garcia’s reportage from Latin America provides a perfect complement to our recent presentation by Russian dissident artist Victoria Lomasko. Please join us for this important perspective from a compelling contemporary cartoonist.
