A Comic from Ocean Vuong’s Event

If you’ve been following us for a while, you may know of Tessa Hulls, the “SAL Official Doodler” and author of the forthcoming graphic novel Feeding Ghosts (MCD Books, 2023). Tessa was recently honored with a 2021 Arts Innovator Award from Artist Trust.

On June 9, Tessa joined us to watch Ocean Vuong’s live and online-only event, an evening that began with Ocean sharing thoughts on art-making and creativity within a capitalist society. Ocean’s talk was followed by a heartfelt Q&A moderated by musical artist Perfume Genius. 

Take a peek at the details below:





Thank you, Tessa!
