Ubu's Almanac: Alfred Jarry and the Graphic Arts Ubu's Almanac: Alfred Jarry and the Graphic Arts was an exhibition on view at the Spencer Museum of Art, Univeristy of Kansas, from April 11 - May 31, 1998

The exhibition includes prints and books by or edited by the French playwright, Alfred Jarry. Today Jarry is remembered almost exclusively as an author, especially of his notorious play, Ubu Roi. However, as this exhibition seeks to demonstrate, Jarry was also very involved in the world of printed images. He made woodcuts and drawings to ornament his own books, and he was involved with two periodicals (L'Ymagier and Perhinderion) that sought to assemble a broad spectrum of printed art, much of it of anonymous or popular production and generally of a devotional nature. These periodicals also included, however, images by the important German Renaissance artist, Albrecht Dürer, and many of Jarry's contemporaries, such as Henri Rousseau and Pierre Bonnard.
