Seth: Clyde Fans

Wednesday May 8, 2019, 7 pm

Join legendary cartoonist Seth for the launch of Clyde Fans, a masterful work twenty years in the making about the decline of a small business and the subsequent erosion of familial relations and one’s sanity. Seth’s intimate storytelling and gorgeous art allow urban landscapes and detailed period objects to tell their own stories as two brothers, Abe and Simon Matchcard, struggle to find themselves suffocating in an airless city home. Clyde Fans is a gorgeous time capsule of the mid-century capitalist dream and the tragedy of two men who don't know themselves.

This event includes a performance by Bill Webster as Abe Matchcard.

Seth is the cartoonist behind the comic book series Palookaville, and his comics have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Best American Comics, and McSweeneys Quarterly. His illustrations have appeared in numerous publications including the cover of the New Yorker, the Walrus, and Canadian Notes & Queries. Seth was the subject of a solo exhibition at the AGO, which showcased the first public display of his model city Dominion. His work is included in the AGO’s Collection.  He is the subject of a National Film Board documentary entitled Seth's Dominion. Seth lives in Guelph, Ontario, with his wife Tania and their two cats in an old house he has named "Inkwell's End".

Presented by AGO in collaboration with Drawn & Quarterly.
