This publication Risoprinted by Fotokino in November 2021 accompanies the exhibition Sound and vision dedicated to the work of Richard McGuire.
How to summarize Richard McGuire’s artistic life in a few lines? Impossible! But let’s try anyway: at the turn of the 1980s, barely out of school, he roamed the streets of New York pasting drawings on the walls, or posters announcing the next concert of his band, Liquid Liquid.
On stage or in the galleries, he rubs shoulders with those who will shape the art of the 1980s, and then begins to respond to illustration commissions, mainly from The New Yorker. He also publishes children’s books and practices animation, while editing his own games and toys. In 2014, he produced a book that will remain an essential piece of comic book history: Here, which tells us the story of a piece of house through time, by means of a dizzying graphic system (which earned him the prize for best album at the 2016 Angoulême Festival). Since then, he has continued his research, mixing his interest in sound with his interest in drawing and art in general, in a spirit of perpetual experimentation. This is what this exhibition reveals, a miniature retrospective of sound and images, rhythm and movement. Sound and Vision.
