FANATIC | ZINE NIGHT

Short for magazine or fanzine, “zines” are self-publications, motivated by a desire for self-expression. OCMA’s Fanatic celebrates the history and modern iteration of the “zine,” with legendary artists and scholars in conversation, drop-in workshops, and free access to the galleries. Fanatic will also host BOOKMOBILE Project—a renowned traveling showcase of independently produced books and zines from across the U.S. and Canada—and their newly released publication.
