Save Event: Passing for Human

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Equity Gallery is pleased to announce Passing for Human, a solo exhibition by comic artist Liana Finck, presenting 80 drawings from a series of work posted on Instagram over the last year.


The complexities of life are distilled into seemingly simple ink cartoons. With precision, honesty and biting wit, she explores the highs and lows of living in New York City and how relationships -- and we ourselves -- evolve. Her work has been described as “gently savage,” “bleakly hilarious” and “transportative” and Finck’s smart authentic voice reminds us of the beauty of experiencing the broad range of emotions that make us human.

Liana Finck (b. 1986, lives and works in Brooklyn, NY) graduated from Cooper Union in 2008. Her cartoons and comics appear regularly in The New YorkerThe Awl and Catapult, and on her Instagram feed. Her first book, A Bintel Brief, was published by Ecco Press in 2014.
