Brain Frame

Brain Frame was a series of performative comix readings.

From 2011-2014, Brain Frame gave comics and zine artists, as well as others interested in the same, a place to interpret their work in front of an open-minded audience, incorporating elements impossible to reproduce on a printed page.

Brain Frame has been called “one of the most exciting things happening in comics” by Gapers Block, a “mildly loopy, wildly eclectic and passionately adored comics-and-performance whatchamacallit/updated ’60s freak out/cartooning-community rallying point” by The Chicago Tribune, and “instrumental to not only Chicago’s comics scene but the larger arts community” by Chicago Artist Writers.

Lyra Hill was Brain Frame's founder, organizer, curator, facilitator, promoter, accountant, and emcee.
