Kirby, Eternally – from Ragnarök to Rebirth!
Next week the Jack Kirby Museum & Research Center welcomes you to Kirby, Eternally, from Ragnarök to Rebirth our almost week-long event in downtown Manhattan! We’ll present, exhibit, and talk about how Jack Kirby, one of the most influential creators of the twentieth century used gods and mythological apocalypse and rebirth in his stories.
We’ll be showcasing Kirby’s work on Eternals, Thor, New Gods, Fantastic Four, and more. Join us at One Art Space, 23 Warren Street in Manhattan’s TriBeCa neighborhood from November 11th through the 16th, to see some Jack Kirby original art, enjoy some large prints of his mind-blowing printed work, take a look at some of his comics, experience a random, unscheduled reading of his work, wear some Kirby-inspired headgear, attend some ticketed, live-streamed events and more!
Thursday, Nov. 11
Noon: Gallery opens
2:00 pm – Kirby at War Screening (free ticketed event)
Since we’re opening on Veterans Day, Thursday, November 11th, our first ticketed event at 2pm will consist of showing our friends Marc Azema and Jean Depelley’s documentary Kirby at War. After his upbringing in NYC’s dog-eat-dog Lower East Side ghetto, Kirby’s harrowing experiences in Europe in World War II continued to inform his life and work. With great respect and humility, we’re honored to be able to acknowledge this time in his life, and how it affected his continuing use of the themes we’re presenting.
6:00 – 8:00 pm – Opening reception (free ticketed event)
Our ticketed opening will feature an open discussion with curators Rand Hoppe and Tom Kraft. Light refreshments will be served.
