In this exhibition, her 3-D pieces will be accompanied by stainless-steel jewelry chains strung into tapestry-like arrangements. Some are elegant, others rough, chunky, and even downright ugly. Some evoke destructive processes; others seem purely abstract, yet eschew formalism through the use of unconventional materials. All toy with the distinctions between art, junk, implement, and decoration. JOULE ZELMAN

30. Mort Cinder
One lifetime's worth of witnessing strife and atrocity is hard enough. But what if every time you died, you came back to endure even more? The influential Argentinian comic Mort Cinder, written by Héctor Germán Oesterheld (aka HGO) and illustrated by Alberto Breccia in the early 1960s, is about one man weathering human depravity across time and space (including outer space). The weathered, tortured faces of murderers, soldiers, grave robbers, and adventurers are rendered in high-contrast black-and-white that will look familiar to fans of Frank Miller. Oesterheld was a left-winger with anti-totalitarian activities and writings—and in 1977, he, his three daughters, and their husbands were “disappeared” and presumably murdered. At long last, Oesterheld and Breccia's creation will be issued in English by Fantagraphics, and HGO’s grandson Martin Oesterheld will be here to discuss its legacy. JOULE ZELMAN
