Yep, that's right. A Few Zines is heading to Los Angeles. The little exhibition that could will do a star turn on Hollywood Blvd thanks to the help John Southern, Tim Durfee, and Mohamed Sharif. The LA Forum hosts the insta-show for three days.
The festivities kick off Friday, August 14 with a panel discussion and opening party. Our lineup of panelists is huge. I'm joined by Juliette Bellocq, Todd Gannon, Wes Jones, Ted Kane,
Paul Petrunia, Margi Reeve. John Southern is moderating.
I'll be hanging around the gallery Saturday and Sunday, so come on by, bring along a coffee or a beer, read a couple zines, and have a chat.

Marginalia: Edge Conditions in Publishing and Practice looks at the role publishing—blogs, journals, zines, and magazines—plays in shaping contemporary speculative practices. The title, Marginalia, is drawn from the term for a scribbles or editorial comment made in the margin and, in this context, refers to notes on the edges of the discipline. The show explores future publishing models and how self-publishing, blogging, and social media give designers the tools to shape alternative practices.
