The French love their BD (“bandes-desinées”, comic strips and graphic novels), especially when the pictures jump off the page and into a museum: After ‘Qunitet’ in Lyon’s MAC and ‘Moebius’ at the Fondation Cartier in Paris, it’s the Musée d’Art Moderne’s turn to wow the crowds with American illustrator Robert Crumb’s satirical offerings. Famed for humorous, subversive creations like Fritz the Cat and Keep on Truckin, Crumb (a fervent critic of mainstream American culture) became a popular ‘underground’ pop-art fixture during the 70s. This exhibition promises a mother load of his sketches, drawings and comic strips, each doused with the artist’s addictive, caustic sense of humour.
