Arts Foundation Finalist talk and visit

Saturday 19th October

12pm - 1.30pm

Esther McManus, Danny Noble, Zara Slattery and Jess Taylor have been selected from a longlist of nominated comics artists as finalists for the first AFFA in Comics. The recipient of the £10,000 award will be announced at the Arts Foundation Futures Awards on the 27th January at the ICA where all runners-up will also receive £1,000 awards towards their practice.

The award was judged by three revered comics artists Woodrow Phoenix, Hannah Berry and John Allison who said; "The four finalists all draw from different schools of cartooning, but each exemplifies the greatest strength of good comics - the easy communication of complex ideas."

The four finalists will be celebrated at the newly revamped Cartoon Museum in London. The AFFA in Comics 2020 will take over the ‘In-Focus’ section of the gallery from the 18th Oct – 1st Dec featuring both original and printed work. The public will have a chance to hear the talented finalists speak about their varied techniques and inspirations at a special event at midday on Saturday 19th October at the Museum. The event will be chaired by Comics Laureate Hannah Berry and will last until approximately 1.30pm. Tickets to the talk are £5 and include access to the whole museum including the excellent Comics Creators, The Famous and the Forgotten curated by Steve Marchant.
