About the exhibit:

WARNING: Graphic Content – The History of Art as Commentary
The exhibit, WARNING: Graphic Content – The History of Art as Commentary, comprises nearly 100 individual editorial cartoons and illustrations chosen by the curator for their ability to incite, educate and inspire.

Curator Dwayne Booth, aka Mr. Fish, selected the cartoons and illustrations for their ability to energize the contemplative or jeering side of uncensored free expression, to educate those unaware of the art form’s storied past and to inspire belief in the future of the cartoonist’s job to both test and deepen the integrity of our democracy. Additionally, 16 of the nation’s most celebrated cartoonists were asked to contribute several of the cartoons they are proudest of having created, plus works of other artists who most influence their creative process. 

About the artist:

Dwayne Booth has been a freelance writer and cartoonist for twenty-two years, publishing under both his real name and the pen name of Mr. Fish with many of the nation's most reputable and prestigious magazines, journals and newspapers.  In addition to his weekly cartoon for Harper's and daily contributions to Truthdig, he has also contributed to the Los Angeles Times, the Village Voice, the LA Weekly, the Atlantic, the Huffington Post, The Nation, Vanity Fair, Mother Jones, the Advocate, Z Magazine, Slate.com, MSNBC.com and others.  In May 2008 he was presented with a first place award by the Los Angeles Press Club for editorial cartooning.  In 2010 and 2011 he was awarded the prestigious Sigma Delta Chi Award for Editorial Cartooning from the Society of Professional Journalists.  In 2012 he was awarded the Grambs Aronson Award for Cartooning with a Conscience.  His most recent books are Go Fish: How to Win Contempt and Influence People, Akashic Books 2011, and WARNING: Graphic Content, Annenberg Press 2013.  He lives in Philadelphia with his wife and twin daughters.
