Negev Museum of art venue of exhibition of ‘Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women’.

he catalogue and banner localized the exhibit ‘Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women’ at the Negev Museum of art.

This well-reviewed and often-startling exhibition provides the first in-depth look at a vibrant and prolific niche of graphic storytelling – Jewish women’s autobiographical comics. Sophisticated yet raw, nakedly diaristic storytelling is what makes these comics so compelling. By turns funny, outrageous, poignant and embarrassingly intimate, the works reflect each artist’s individual journeys refracted through a distinctively Jewish lens in a pop-culture art form. Some bare their bodies. Some expose their psyches. All are fearless about experiences, emotions, desires, romance and politics.
