PHILLY///MUST-SEE SHOW: R. CRUMB AT THE ICA
With the eyes of the world on Philadelphia as the Phillies aim to take the World Series, the must-see cultural event of the moment remains "R. Crumb's Underground," a career retrospective of the city's native son at the progressive INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ART . On display through December 7th, the awesome array of vintage work by the ultimate master of underground cartooning and current French resident, ROBERT CRUMB, is impressive in scope and spans the length of his career, from his early San Francisco days in the 1960s, to recent work with his wife, cartoonist Aline Kominsky-Crumb. Extending far beyond comics, this show of over 100 works—including early comics, greeting cards, collaborations, and sketchbooks, as well as drawings and sculptures—is the most substantial portrait of Crumb to date in the United States.
