ABQ Zine Fest SIX!!

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2016 11am-6pm

at The Tannex, GRAFT & The Small Engine Gallery

ABQ Zine Fest (ABQZF) is an inclusive, public event for graphic and mixed-media artists whose visual medium is the zine (zinesters). Zines are experimental, often illustrated, hand drawn or collaged ephemera, as experienced in the age of DADA. Zine subjects can range from the personal to the political and often focus on expanding conceptions of art. ABQZF, in its 6th year, is the only festival in New Mexico for zinesters to meet, exchange and discuss their work with the public, and to form new creative collaborations, yielding further artistic exploration. ABQZF fosters a non-competitive, diverse, queer-friendly, creative environment for zinesters.

ABQ Zine Fest organizers Marya Errin Jones and Liza Bley are at it again. This year's iteration of the celebration of self-created and printed media—the sixth such gathering—is happening on Saturday, Oct. 8, across three spaces—the Tannex, GRAFT and Small Engine Gallery. The first year I tabled at ABQ Zine Fest, the course of my life was changed forever by the friendships that were formed. This year's celebration of the medium, with support from the Fulcrum Fund, is sure to be just as life-altering for all who make their way to Barelas to exchange the handmade publications they've so lovingly written, drawn, cut, copied, bound and stapled. This year also marks the first visit of LA zine virtuoso Taleen Kali, editor in chief of DUM DUM Zine. DUM DUM Zine consistently challenges the expression of the zine medium, presenting experimental art and literature that might take the shape of a disc, a multi-media box or a newspaper. Kali, a writer, artist, musician and punk rock yoga instructor, exchanged a few emails with me a few weeks before her visit. Our exchange was as follows.
