A ZINE (pr: zeen) is a form of self-publicated magazine. These often pocket-sized and hand-crafted works on paper are printed in small editions and personally distributed. Containing both original and appropriated artwork and designs, and alternately known as a fanzine, the message of a zine may vary from social commentary to pure, artistic creativity. Though not formally recognized until the 1980s as a category in the arts, these artworks take inspiration from previous forms of artistic books that began to develop as early as the late 19th century. Designed after the basic arrangement of a book, both artforms move beyond the traditional media, to further explore expressions of form, identity, and image.
Donated by Nancy Palmeri and Ron Goodstein, these works were collected at gallery exhibitions, performances, and museums alike, forming an incredibly diverse collection of all shapes, sizes, and styles of zines. Please join us to celebrate these artists and their works throughout the summer.
