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 with the Oakland-based artist collective Rock Paper Scissors.

BAM/PFA (the Berkeley Art Museum) is 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 instructional videos and contributions from other Bay Area ‘zine collectives, as well as specially commissioned ‘zines and multiples from Ari Marcopoulos, Bozidar Brazda, Kamao Patton, Marc Arthur, Vanessa Albury, Tammy Rae Carland, Taravat Talepasand, Joseph Akel, Isaac Valdez, and Kamao Patton, plus many more!

The opening reception is Fri, Nov. 13 at 7:00 p.m. (store opens at 5 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.
