The Great Moments in Western Civilization Postal Constituent: A Ten Year Study
An Exhibition by Caitlin Cass
Opening Reception Friday, October 4th, 5-9pm
This show collects the first ten years of Caitlin’s Great Moments in Western Civilization Postal Constituent, a bimonthly comic periodical. 72 self-published comics will be displayed along with original art and handwritten analysis.
“What I wanted to do was to make a history that prioritized failure instead of victory. My histories studied the striving and the anticlimactic fizzling out instead of the path of progress. I found that storytelling allowed me to explore ideas without trying too hard to understand them in logical sentences,” Cass says.
