The Bible Illuminated: R. Crumb's Book of Genesis

Recommended

Portland Art Museum (map) Southwest
June 10-Sept. 19 2010

In staying so close to the source material, Crumb's Genesis can be tedious, and powering through 200-plus pages while standing in the museum invites exhibition fatigue. The nuances of Genesis are probably best internalized in book format from your couch, but that doesn't negate the power of the originals on view at PAM: In erasures and imperfect pen work, the drawings are indicative of the relationship between people and religious texts—a relationship we should be reminded of more often.
