Zine Art Exhibition
The first Birmingham Zine Festival
takes place in a few weeks time, but in the run up, the team are putting on an exhibition of works from some of people who will be promoting and selling their wares. The exhibition at Urban Outfitters
runs from 2-30 September. The opening is on Friday 2 September from 5pm. There will be a wide range of work from loads of self-publishers and DIYers including illustration, comics, photography and much more. Zines will be on sale and there will be opening drinks.
From about 7pm the private view will then be moving to the Framers at the Custard Factory for the opening of the Postcard, Mail Art Exhibition. Over the last few months 200 postcards have been sent out to zine publishers and artists who requested them. They are to be displayed at the Framers gallery throughout September. At the end of the exhibition each artist will receive another’s postcard in return.
