Dallas Zine Explosion Coming Your Way

 

DallasZineParty_WB

On September 5 and 6, Dallas will host interconnecting events focusing on the region’s burgeoning love affair with zines.

On September 5 at 3 p.m. at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library (downtown) there’ll be a panel discussion about the library’s Fine Arts Division’s new initiative for collecting zines. The panel will discuss “what zines are, their importance in the art and literary communities, zine festivals, the zine community in Dallas, and artists who are currently making zines.”

Via the event’s PR:

The panel includes artist and educator Randy Guthmiller of SHAPE Zines, Anastasia (Stacy) Kirages of the art zine Modernizm and organizer of Houston Zine Fest, David LaBounty, editor and publisher of Workers Write! and The First Line, Houston based artist Sarah Welch of Mystic Multiples and current resident at UT Dallas’ Centraltrak, and Sandra Davalos of the global humanitarian music label and publishing house, Cemetery Sisters

There’s a zine-making workshop following the panel, and art collector Michael Wynne’s zine collection (decades in the making) will be on view.

On September 6 starting at 1 p.m., there’s a full-blown zine fair and party at The Wild Detectives independent bookstore in Oak Cliff, featuring work by dozens of local and national DIY micro-publications, zine artists and designers, and underground presses.
