DESCRIPTION

Zine Of The Month

November 2- December 8, 2013

 

Zine Of The Month is a project started in 2009 that releases limited-edition and handmade artist zines, featuring collaborations between printer and publisher Mark Price and a plethora of Philadelphia and New York based artists. Each monthly publication is hand-printed and bound by Price at Space 1026, a long standing artist co-op and exhibition space in the Chinatown neighborhood of Philadelphia. Zine Of The Month has involved many artists who work and who keep studios at Space 1026. The monthly releases are offered through a yearly subscription and feature varying reproduction and binding techniques including screen printing and photocopying to translate the artists’ work to the intimate and tactile medium of 'zines.

 

Booklyn will host a retrospective exhibition with a library of past releases on view, coupled with print ephemera from the project, and a gallery of original works by artists who have participated in the project including Beth Brandon, Jason Hsu, Hilary Price, Abbey L Sarver, Max Seckle, Lance Simmions, Miriam Singer, Jason Rusnock, and James Ulmer.

 

ZINE OF THE MONTH is the nineteenth in a series of group exhibitions dedicated to providing self-publishing artists, who generally share their work through printed matter and other ephemeral media, with a platform for exhibition, experimentation and exploration outside of the printed format. This exhibition is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and additionally  in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
