Christopher Sperandio works in such forms of “distributed media” as television, comic books, and chocolate. He’s collaborated with British artist Simon Grennan to author 20 comic books published in conjunction with a variety of museums, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and London’s ICA, and publishers including Fantagraphics Books and DC Comics. Their innovative approach to drawing involves projects and installations that engage varied communities and address issues of demographics and distribution. Sperandio is also the creator and executive producer of ARTSTAR, the first reality television show set in the New York art world.

After the talk, Sperandio signs copies of his new book,Kartoon Kings: The Graphic Work of Simon Grennan and Christopher Sperandio, in the Wexner Store.

Co-sponsored by the Cartoon Research Library, Department of Comparative Studies, Project Narrative, and Department of Art, and the Wexner Center for the Arts.
