  • Total immersion in comicsThe twelfth Lyon Festival of comics will be held on the 9th, 0th and th of June. The exhibition Comics: the invisible art will be one of the high-spots.

    Every year, the Festival of comics brings some 200 authors to Lyon. In the same spirit, the exhi-bition will look at comics as they are now, lining up todays cartoonists with their major predecessors to show how comics have developed since they first appeared in the 19th century or even earlier.

    The scenario, created jointly by the Museum and the Festival, also aims to decipher what the French call the ninth art, to reveal how it works, its codes. This lesson in comics will provide the context, right from the start of the exhibition, in which to define the limits of the genre and to show its diversity of styles and applications, from the paper album to Phallaina, a digital comic created by Marietta Ren which uses a tablet to scroll different episodes in any order and without a break.

    Scott mcCloudAs well as being one of the guests of honour at the 12th Lyon Festival of comics, Scott McCloud will be present at the Museum of Printing and graphic commu-nication during the exhibition Comics: the invisible art . Date and time will be published on the websites of the Museum and the Festivalwww.lyonbd.comwww.imprimerie.Lyon.fr

    Scott mcClouds involvementThe American theorist of comics Scott McCloud, himself also a cartoonist, has agreed to help us by letting us use his theoretical works Understanding comics and Reinventing comics and by making available many extracts from them to be used as the storyline for the exhibition.

    For Scott McCloud the comic is a sequential art-form which has its own precise language, just as have literature, film, painting or photography. Making reference to past and present cartoonists, the exhibition Comics: the invisible art sets the boundaries of comics, then explores their specific languages and techniques. A cartoonist must be a producer of his story, an actor in it, an anato-mist to make it expressive, a graphic artist to illustrate it and to create speech-bubbles showing time, space, emotions, the five senses and so on.

    from the universe of comicsto the cartoonists studioHistorical documents, from the collections of the Museum, of Lyons cole Normale Suprieure and of the Lyon Municipal Library, will be on display alongside work by contemporary cartoonists chosen by the Lyon Festival of comics. The expertise of the Festi-vals team, combined with these historical and contemporary objects, will give the visitor new insights into a class of published works which still needs to be explained and shared.

    Lessons on comics in the Rpublique car-parkLPA, the company which operates this car-park, has agreed a partner-ship with the Museum of Printing and graphic communication and with the Lyon Festival of comics during the exhibition Comics: the invisible art . Situated a short distance from the Museum, this is the most frequented car-park in the city centre; unusually for a car-park it incorporates a space for artistic projects.

    Jrme Jouvray (the creator of the well-known whinging cowboy Lincoln), who comes from Lyon and teaches Comics at the mile Cohl school, has been invited to use the Rpublique car-park as a huge blank page. The walls, doors, poster spaces, lifts, balustrades, escala-tors and all other surfaces will be used to conjure up famous car-toon characters, presenting them to the public, putting them to the test or revealing their secrets and hidden meanings. A page of a comic in 3D will rear up in the middle of the space.

    From May to September pedes trians, cyclists, drivers, pas-sers-by and all users of the car-park will have the chance to discover, read, photograph and find them-selves face-to-face with Jrme Jouvrays universe.
