Delve into do-it-yourself culture: from limited run artist books to cut-and-paste photocopy fanzines, explore the evolution and diversity of these radical publishing alternatives.
Celebrate the power of self-publishing to communicate directly with readers, create community, and support counter-culture movements. Self-publishing empowers makers of all abilities and backgrounds to become creative producers, challenge dominant models, and make work that anyone can appreciate and collect.
State Library Victoria has one of the finest collections of artist books and zines in Australia and Self-made showcases original rare objects from the collection, as well as a selection of contemporary zines and artist books. Discover science fiction fanzines from the 1940s, ground-breaking 1970s punk zines, Australian underground press publications and artist books designed to circumvent commercial gallery systems.
Join us for a Twilight Tour of the exhibition on Thursday 20 June starting at 5.30pm.
This is a free event and all are welcome. RSVP to the Gallery by noon Tuesday 18 June 2019.
Exhibition on display 1 June - 28 July 2019.
