We’re excited to announce another collaborative art show – this time partnering with the Rock Paper Scissors Collective and Tomas Moniz of Rad Dad Zine. Paper Trails is a zine-themed show, encompassing hundreds of zines, many of which are locally-produced.
The show runs from March 9th through April 12th and opens with a party on March 9th from 6-10pm. The opening will feature a Zine Variety Show with readings by Tomas Moniz, John Bobst, and Mari Naomi along with music performances by Annah Anti-Palindrome and Jon Barba. DJ Baro will add some vinyl flavor to the party.
At the opening party, and for the duration of the show, we’ll host the Paper Trails zine-making station. Visitors will be encouraged to contribute pages to the crowdsourced Paper Trails zine, which will be curated from submissions, then printed and distributed by the R.P.S. crew after the close of the show – it will be available for purchase at R.P.S., Actual Cafe, and other art spaces and book outlets when it’s done.
We’ll hang featured installations from local zinesters Endless Canvas, MariNaomi, Jaime Crespo, and others, and show tons of other zines on a display designed by Jamie Mayne of RPS. Genres will include Riot Grrrl, Radical Politics, Parenting, Gender & Sexuality, Comics/Art/Photography, DIY Skill-Sharing, and more. Zines will be available for sale or trade, and a zine reading library will be installed in the cafe (replacing our normal book exchange for the month).
I’ll post some images and such as soon as I can get some. Don’t miss this show – it’s a one-of-a-kinder.
