Yvan Alagbé on Yellow Negroes and Other Imaginary Creatures

One of France’s most revered comic book artists, Yvan Alagbé discusses at the Chicago Humanities Festival why the graphic form is so well suited to conveying true stories in all their honesty and depth. He is one of the most innovative and provocative artists in the world of comics.

Yvan Alagbé has developed a highly distinctive approach to the graphic novel, combining free form, black-and-white brushwork with a stark visual storytelling style to tackle some of the weightiest issues of our time. Now available in English for the very first time, his book, Yellow Negroes and Other Imaginary Creatures, details the relentless anxieties and tribulations of undocumented migrant workers in Paris.

A book signing will follow this event. 

Supported by the Cultural Service at the Consulate General of France in Chicago
