Gina Siciliano presents I Know What I Am: The Life and Times of Artemisia Gentileschi
In her debut graphic novel, Gina Siciliano brings to life the tumultuous 17th-century cities of Rome, Florence, Naples, and Venice where the fearless Artemisia Gentileschi braved the male-dominated sphere of painting to become a groundbreaking artist. I Know What I Am paints a complex, feminist portrait of Artemisia as a single mother, sexual assault survivor, and pioneering practitioner of her craft.
Join us on at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery on Saturday, October 12 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM for an exhibition of Siciliano’s original art, sketches, and research material related to the book. The artist will discuss her work at 7:00 PM. Exhibition remains on view through November 5.
