On Thursday, March 5, join Toronto electro-pop artist Lowell, DJ Donna Lovejoy & DJ Barbi at the AGO’s party dedicated to comics, zines and illustration!

This First Thursday event boasts a fierce lineup of artist projects, a zine lounge, a fake injury party, art-making (Garbage Pail Kids Trading Cards & button-making stations), live music and pop-up talks, all inspired by the work of groundbreaking comics artist Art Spiegelman.

It’s your chance to explore Art Spiegleman’s CO-MIX: A Retrospective on the second floor of the AGO. Spiegelman creates work that references politics, the Holocaust, Cubism and hard-boiled detective fiction (among other things).

Tickets are on sale now ($12 in advance and $15 at the door for non-AGO members). The evening will also feature an Out of the Vaults exhibition of rarely seen works from the AGO collection, as well as delicious food and drinks (cash bar; ID required).

For all the deets, visit here.
