Sophie Crumb & Aline Kominsky-Crumb at DCKT Contemporary

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

This show presents recent drawings by the two artists, marking the first time mother and daughter have exhibited together.


“Ms. Kominsky-Crumb has been an artist since childhood…Inspiration seems to come from comics, caricature, German Expressionism, and the “Real Housewives” franchise of cable television infamy… [Ms. Crumb] copies photographs from fashion magazines with results that call to mind the slightly distorted, definitely unsettling realism of the Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) artists of Weimar, Germany.”
—Roberta Smith, “Sophie Crumb and Aline Kominsky-Crumb,” New York Times, 18 September 2014
