This year’s lineup of lectures has been engineered by artist Jorge Méndez Blake, whose installation “Project for a Park Library (Aerial View Large),” a room-sized vinyl print that envisions a library as a landscape, is currently on view at the MCA. Tonight’s event, the last of three programs curated by Blake, is billed as an “Architect and Cartoonist Comic Jam” and brings together two Guadalajarans from seemingly unrelated disciplines. But it turns out that architect Sergio Ortiz and cartoonist Jose Ignacio Solorzano (aka JIS) are both concerned with the everyday life of Guadalajara — although from different perspectives. So their program will be a mash-up of realities, with Ortiz discussing the relationship between housing and culture while JIS improvises drawings to illustrate the talk.
The comic jam starts at 6:30 p.m. at the MCA, 1485 Delgany Street; admission is $10 to $15. Find more information at mcadenver.org.
