Last week, Light Grey had the wonderful opportunity to participate in Autoptic, a biennial two-day festival of independent culture, which happened in downtown Minneapolis! The festival was filled with tons of great artwork from local and national exhibitors, including comics, zines, prints, and everthing in between.
Many of the exhibitors and festival attendees gathered at Light Grey Art Lab for the opening reception and Autoptic kick-off party. It was a two-part exhibition featuring international comic artists, displaying their new works, printed projects, and original drawings. The exhibition was hosted by Autoptic and ChiFouMi and held at Light Grey Art Lab.
Anders Nilsen curated a show titled Nothing Will Ever Be The Same featuring work by Charles Burns, Aidan Koch, Antoine Marchalot, Helge Reumann, and Laura Park. Additionally, there was a small solo exhibition of work by Dominique Goblet called Works on Paper. It was a lively scene as groups of artists and art appreciators met and celebrated with the anticipation of an art-filled weekend ahead. We loved hosting the event and would like to thank every one who stopped by and made the night so special!
We loved every minute of the weekend and meeting all of you! If you missed the chance to stop by our booth at Autoptic, you can always see the latest work at shop.lightgrey.com. You can also see the Comic Exhibition that will be on display through August 20th.
Thanks again to all of the awesome exhibitors and supporters of Autoptic, and we look forward to the next event!
