3:30 pm - 5:00 pm


2023 3Arts/Bodies of Work Residency Fellow Bianca Xunise reads their work on Zoom.

RSVP for the event.

Join 2023 3Arts/BOW Fellow Bianca Xunise for a live comics reading! They’ll be joined by three fellow comics artists, Mariah-Rose Marie, Eileen Chavez and Sage Coffey. After the reading, we’ll get to learn a bit about what Bianca’s been mulling over with the residency — intertwined themes of hysteria, gender, Blackness and disability — as they turn to new projects after completing their book “Punk Rock Karaoke” (coming out in Spring 2024!). 

Access information: Live captions (CART) and ASL will be provided, and descriptions of the artwork will be incorporated. The event space is wheelchair accessible, and is equipped with accessible restrooms. Contact dcc@uic.edu with any questions or requests.

COVID-19 safety: To keep our communities safe, we ask that everyone wear a mask for the in-person event. We’ll have extras on hand.
