Zines Reception with TEN09

March 9 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

A zine (short for “magazine”) is a small-circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images, usually reproduced via photocopier.

The current selection of zines was created by artists from TEN09 (@ten09print), a collective of printers, bookmakers, and zinesters from George Mason University’s School of Art, and curated by Christopher Kardambikis (@c.kardambikis), GMU Assistant Professor and Director of Navigation Press (@navigationpress).

Join us for a reception honoring these artists at our Friday March 9 Late Shift Art Night, 9pm. The zines are on view and for sale at the Torpedo Factory’s Gift Shop, located in our Grand Hall.

Christopher Kardambikis explores space, process, and form through books, printmaking, and drawing. He has co-founded three artist book and zine projects: Encyclopedia Destructica in Pittsburgh, Gravity and Trajectory in San Diego, and 90 Proof Press in Los Angeles. Christopher has been an artist-in-residence at Pioneer Works, The Art Students League, The Millay Colony, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and the Vermont Studio Center.  He received his BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and MFA from the University of California, San Diego.
