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.
