Green Zine and Photo Book Fair

Curated by Paul John

Opening Reception: June 21st | 6 – 8 pm

Fair Dates: June 22nd & 23rd, 2019 | 12 – 6 pm

This June, BAXTER ST at CCNY will host the 9th annual Zine & Photo Book Fair on June 22nd and 23rd, with the opening reception on June 21st from 6 to 8 pm.

For the 2019 Baxter St at CCNY Zine and Photo Book Fair entitled Green Zine and Photo Book Fair, the term “green” is used as an adjective to describe someone to be inexperienced, fresh, brand-new. Zines are typically published with a sense of urgency — originally as a method to subvert glossy mainstream publications, zines have now become an alternative method of disseminating information outside of the internet. This fair will feature a selection of firsts, or “green” zinemakers, and emerging publications by both established and first time independent publishers.

Friday, June 21st from 6-8pm through Sunday, June 23rd from 12-6pm.
