Zine Mart: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Ariane Bicho

Two weeks only! Take a look at the East Bay’s rich D.I.Y. culture during Zine Mart, a special pop-up shop of ‘zines and other self-produced multiples. Zine Mart is a creative partnership between L@TE guest programmer Franklin Melendez and the Oakland-based artist collective Rock Paper Scissors.

We are delighted to host for the first time in a museum RPS’s extensive ‘zine library. This archive documents the history of these self-produced publications, as well as celebrating the East Bay’s innumerable contributions. In addition, Zine Mart will feature an instructional video, as well as specially commissioned ‘zines and multiples from Ari Marcopoulos, Taravat Talepasand, Joseph Aekle, Isaac Valdez, Kamao Patton and Bozidar Brazda, plus other goodies.

Zine Mart opens Fri, Nov. 13 at 5 p.m.; the opening reception is at 7:30 p.m. and will feature a conversation between Ari Marcopoulos and Paul Schiek, as well as a book signing for SHOOT, the tome tracing the point and shoot revolution edited by Ken Miller. Zine Mart: Runs through Nov. 22 during regular museum hours…think cool almost-holiday shopping.
