Now in its third US edition, the PICTOPLASMA CONFERENCE returns to New York City with inspiring artist lectures and presentations, state of the art animation and character-driven screening programs, as well as a lively panel discussion on campus at Tishman Auditorium.

Taking place on November 4 and 5, the conference is the perfect prelude to New York’s Illustration Week. The conference invites designers, illustrators, fimmakers and producers, fine and urban artists, and character connoisseurs to gather under one roof and discourse freely about the world of character-driven art and design.

The line-up this year includes Geneviève Gauckler (FR), Jeremyville (AUS), Tim Biskup (USA), Allyson Mellberg Taylor (USA), BeatBots (JP/USA), Jon Burgerman (UK), Joshua Ben Longo (USA), Ben & Julia (FR/CH), Raymond Lemstra (NL) and Mark Jenkins (USA) covering a wide range of media and disciplines.
