Inappropriate Touching in Somerville

Posted by Emily Sweeney January 13, 2008 06:28 PM

The Washington Street Art Center will soon be hosting an interesting exhibit called “Inappropriate Touching,” a group show of dirty comics and provocative artwork. Expect plenty of edgy drawings and off-color humor from an assortment of ‘zinesters, artists, cartoonists, and illustrators from the indie comics world. Contributors include Liz Prince, Karl Stevens of the Phoenix, Ariel Schrag, Jeffrey Brown, VICE magazine’s Johnny Ryan, Jason Little and Bonnie Dewitt.

The opening reception will be happening Friday, Feb. 1 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., featuring, rather appropriately, “dirty disco and dance tracks” from DJ Area D, and live music performances by Angela, The Real Life Time Machines, and Plunge Into Death.

Curator Sarah Schoemann is creating a limited edition ‘zine for this exhibition. You can purchase copies at Washington Street Art Center and comic book stores around town, and proceeds will support music programming at the center. The exhibit will be on display until Feb. 24. Gallery hours are 12 - 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays, and also by appointment.
