Comics have appeared in gallery and museum spaces for years, but they have not historically been created to exist in those spaces. Now, a rising generations of artists has been producing comics work that is influenced by the ideas and aesthetics of art history. Simultaneously, these artists are comfortably creating work for the gallery context. As they begin to produce installation-based work that embodies the formal sequencing of comics, they pioneer an emerging type of comics that exists between the page and the three-dimensional gallery space. REBUS explores what comics made for the gallery—and a gallery made for comics—might look like.
