OH MY ZINE!

Curator Notes: Bella Quirin

In the early days, Zines were a way to revolt against societal norms and consumerist society by creating DIY, self published, low budget publications with small print runs. This is still at the heart of zine culture. They allow complete creative freedom for the creator and are a pivotal platform for creative expression.

OH MY ZINE is a celebration of artists and creators, through the 8 artists and collectives, we honor the diversity in which zines can be used and their influence as an art form.

The exhibition features extracts from the zines alongside the zines themselves. Featuring work from: 105 women press, Ben Cooney, Bobbi Rae Gastall, Chella Quint, Holly Casio, Lauren Pascal, Okocha Obasi and Patrick Wray.

The Zines and other related merchandise are available to buy downstairs in the shop.

The exhibition runs from 18th April - 21st June.
