Gould Library Fall 2014 Exhibitions 

Miguel Brieva (Seville, 1974) is a Spanish cartoonist who has cultivated multiple genres combining text and image: comics, graphic humor, illustration, animation, visual poetry, and sketches. This exhibition, curated by Miguel Brieva in collaboration with Palmar Alvarez-Blanco, associate professor of Spanish, features posters, book covers, comics and illustrations that span Brieva’s career and reflect his sharp political wit and talent for incisive commentary. In conjunction with the exhibition, the artist will visit campus and lead a hands-on workshop with the students in SPAN 328: Contemporary Fiction & the Market.
