Krazy Kat:  Because I’m writing a ‘sikrit’ to myself –

In the East Wing, as a specific complement to von Heyl’s work, for your dining and dancing pleasure, Corbett vs. Dempsey presents a single 1934 page of Krazy Kat, the seminal comic by George Herriman: “Today, the world walks in beauty.” Equal parts existential philosopher and avant-garde line-artist, Herriman paved the way for the most inquisitive comic artists of the last 50 years.

Charline von Heyl’s Interventionist Demonstration (Why-A-Duck?) , is accompanied by a full-color 56-page catalog, with a selection of text fragments appropriated from Krazy Kat.
