PAST: "Liana Finck: The Bintel Brief " at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue WED, Jan 11th - FRI, March 2nd, Free

Liana Finck: The Bintel Brief  on view at Sixth & I
Wednesday, January 11th - Friday, March 2nd

The exhibit showcases pieces from Liana Finck’s upcoming graphic novel based on The Jewish Daily Forward’s “Bintel Brief” advice column. Through the column, young immigrants sought advice on a variety of heartbreaking and absurd dilemmas. Finck’s illustrations capture these letters as seen from the point of view of a narrator – an omniscient but relatively helpless columnist inspired by the Forward’s founding editor, Abraham Cahan.

Liana Finck graduated from Cooper Union and received a Fulbright Fellowship to Brussels to write a graphic novel about Georges Remi, the creator of the beloved comic book character Tintin. She is a recipient of the prestigious Six Points Fellowship, a two-year grant for emerging Jewish artists.
