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!
