Curator's Choice Lecture: Katherine Roeder

Moving Images and Wordless Books: Mapping David Wiesner’s Network of Influences

Drawing upon everything from epic westerns and 1950’s sci-fi, to the precise compositions of Kubrick and Hitchcock, Wiesner’s books commingle the visual language of cinema with the narrative dynamism of wordless novelists like Frans Masereel and comic book artists such as Jim Steranko and Jack Kirby. This lecture situates the art of David Wiesner within the larger context of sequential narratives, examining the impact of film, comic books and graphic illustration on his work.
