David Deitcher

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter includes a 1984 article by art historian David Deitcher criticizing The Comic Art Show (Whitney, 1983) and the show catalog edited by John Carlin and Sheena Wagstaff. Deitcher explains: “A recent exhibition devoted to the complex, often antagonistic relation between comic strips and modern art submitted the comics to a paradigm of excellence derived from a fine art tradition, thereby reinforcing rather than reducing the familiar distinction between high and popular culture.”

Keywords:   The Comic Art Show, Comic strips, Modern art, Whitney
