Self-Confessed! The Inappropriately Intimate Comics of Alison Bechdel

  • Fleming Museum of Art 61 Colchester Avenue Burlington, VT, 05405 United States (map)

The Fleming Museum of Art presents an exhibition of the work of Alison Bechdel, spanning her illustrious, decades-long career. "Self-Confessed" presents her primary bodies of work (Fun Home and Are You My Mother?) in depth through original drawings and sketches, while incorporating other aspects of Bechdel’s creative output, from early drawings to activist ephemera to large-scale self-portraits. The exhibition also includes a model of the set for the musical Fun Home, reconstructed for this exhibition.

The exhibition explores Bechdel’s work as a writer, an artist, and an archivist of the self, someone who constantly mines and shares her own experiences as a way to communicate something vitally human: the quest for love, acceptance, community, and social justice.

The exhibition opens January 30 and runs through May 20, 2018.

Cost: $3 to $10 (free for museum members)
