Edie Fake presents Memory Palaces at the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division. Chicago comics artist Edie Fake and Brooklyn publishers Secret Acres are pleased to debut a monograph of Edie’s recent gallery exhibition, Memory Palaces. Edie will present his drawings and discuss the origins and specifics of his project, a radical reimagining of queer spaces in Chicago.

 

Edie Fake was born in Chicagoland in 1980. He graduated from the RISD in 2002 and has since clocked time in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Baltimore. He was one of the first recipients of Printed Matter’s Awards for Artists and his collection of comics, Gaylord Phoenix, won the 2011 Ignatz Award for Outstanding Graphic Novel. In 2011 he helped found the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE) and writes reviews for the blog Book By Its Cover. He currently lives in Chicago and works as a comics sommelier for Quimby’s.
