HOLY COOPER UNION, BATMAN!
How much action, how much drama do you crave? Be on hand when Mike Essl speaks! Hear harrowing tales of Hollywood tyrants! Witness waylaid designs! See terrible typographic transformations! Behold his epic battle with the Editor of Doom! Free and open to the public.
For over a decade Mike Essl has put the books in comic books for publishers like Abrams ComicArts, Chronicle Books, DC Comics, and Rizzoli. He is an Associate Professor at The Cooper Union where he leads the Graphic Design program. His work has been featured by the AIGA, ComicCon, the Cooper-Hewitt, and MoMA. Mike has appeared on the A&E Biography of Mr. T, Design Matters with Debbie Millman, The Howard Stern Show, and VH1’s Totally Obsessed.
The Intradisciplinary Seminar, sponsored by the The Cooper Union School of Art, presents a series of free, public lectures reflecting a broad range of contemporary art issues. Speakers include artists, writers, and thinkers currently engaged in a variety of practices. The emphasis is on interdisciplinary approaches, presenting new voices, international perspectives and scholarship across multiple fields. The series constitutes a lively forum for the exchange of ideas between practitioners, students, faculty and the public.
The Fall 2016 Intradisciplinary Seminar is part of the Robert Lehman Visiting Artist Program at The Cooper Union. We are grateful for major funding support from the Robert Lehman Foundation.
Located in the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square (on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets)
