Program: 

Artist CHRIS WARE has single-handedly re-defined the possibilities of the graphic novel form. His work is complex, serious and stunningly beautiful. His latest piece is titled BUILDING STORIES and consists of a large decorated box that contains books, newspapers, strips, booklets and even a printed board stand up that together relate the complex stories of the people that live in a large old building. It is a work that describes the conflicts that exist between our rich inner lives and the realities we all must live with spouse, lovers, children and work.
