Before there were snappy social media memes depicting comical looks at daily life, there were newspaper cartoons. Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs takes a nostalgic turn through The New Yorker’s archives, showcasing the work of prolific artist and cartoonist, Roz Chast. On the heels of Chast’s 2014 award-winning illustrated memoir, Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?, this Museum of the City of New York exhibition curates over 200 works highlighting the artist’s talent for capturing the “absurdities and insecurities” of daily life. A Brooklyn native, many of the situations depicted in Chast’s work are specific to New Yorkers’ experiences, making this a must-see show for loyal-to-home locals.
