Intelligence Joan Cornella: A New York Solo Exhibition

For a limited time this summer, works by the globally known illustrator and cartoonist Joan Cornella are available for viewing at the Josée Bienvenu Gallery in the West Village. Famous for his unsettling humor that is portrayed mostly through 6-panel comics with few to no written words, Cornella does not stray away from social commentary in this exhibit. His disturbing themes force audiences to recognize the hypocrisy that plagues today’s society, though at first glance the premises may be hard to recognize. The bright colored simplistic images appear good-natured, but upon further investigation the unsettling and surreal humor reveals itself.

This exhibit certainly is not one for the light-hearted. It seeks to create an inner dialogue for audiences, asking them to reflect on our society’s self-centered nature. Most pieces feature somewhat offensive components, ranging from a variety of guns to self-inflicted amputation. While the comics can appear bright and simplistic, upon further inspection you will find much more behind Cornella’s brush.

You can purchase tickets and read more about the exhibition here.
