L.A. Zine Fest: Ukrainian Cultural Center ~ Feb. 17th

1:47 PM PST on February 6, 2013

Zinefest2012 (21 of 24)

The Ukrainian Cultural Center is set to welcome 100+ exhibitors of zines and small press publications for the second annual L.A. Zine Fest, a gathering that provides a space for makers of these small-run, independently published, non-commercial books to come together to share their work with each other and with the public at large.

The Zine Fest will also operate out of two satellite venues: the art gallery and record store HRLDRY (4302 Melrose Ave.) will house the Zine Library, in which attendees can sit and read zines from Zine Fest exhibitors past and present; and The Moth Theatre (4359 Melrose Ave.), which will host the day's panels and discussions. The L.A. Zine Fest and all related panels and discussions are free and open to the public.

The 2013 schedule of events includes the milestone release of Ker-bloom! #100 by Artnoose; a speed dating-style opportunity for zinemakers to meet possible future collaborators courtesy of zine collective Zineworks; an instructive workshop on anthologizing your zines by Mend My Dress Press; a multimedia reading and presentation by collective POC (People Of Color) Zine Project; and a panel discussion with multi-talented performers and artists Allison Wolfe (Bratmobile, Cool Moms), Alice Bag (The Bags, Cholita!), Drew Denny (L.A. Record), and Charlyne Yi (Upright Citizens Brigade), moderated by writer K. Bradford (Trop Magazine).
