1 July - 28 November 2010. Comprising 350 works by 150 international comic book authors, the Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Architecture presents an exhibition examining the relationship between comics and architecture.

Generally synonymous with urban settings, comic writers from Frank O. King (Gasoline Alley) to Steve Ditko (Spider-Man) made use of often dramatic architectural backdrops for their story lines.

For this exhibition, some of the world's most famous architects and illustrators, including Tardi, Moebius and Bilal, were asked to produce an original work, which in turn is compared to the work of archive comic artwork and photographs. There is also a special area for young visitors.

Daily: 11.00-19.00. Thurs: 11.00-21.00
