Approaching zine culture through the lens of experimental publishing and publishing as artistic practice.





Feature Projects









For this presentation at the Vancouver Art Book Fair, Sylvana dAngelo visited our studio in Brooklyn, NY picking a section of over 65 titles from the GenderFail Archive. dAngelo focused mainly on our robust selection of zines. The zines are presented with sculptures made by New York based artist Gracie Whiteside along with screen printed pillow cases by myself. The Vancouver Art Book Fair reading room showcases an intersectional perspective of publishers, printing styles and subject matter representing queer, trans, non-binary artists, Indigenous artists, artists of color and even heteronormative cisgender white men.



Spiritual Pilgrimage
2018





Spiritual Pilgrimage is a website that cannot be viewed unless you print it as a zine.

This project is a website and publication derived of images submitted online by participating artists from Vancouver and South Korea. Images were curated directly from a live folder and feed this site where they are randomly formatted for publication. Print copies of the publication by hitting Command+P and receive three pages of images. Download the A4 verso pdf and follow these instructions creating a unique web to print concept, where every zine is unique.


Zine Club Publishing






Collaborative Publishing









Zine Club has collaborated with many great people to create and re-interpret projects as print zines, digitally presented media and exhibition.




Exhibit




Bibliocache at Vancouver Art Book Fair 2019

Bibliocache is an experimental library of self-published projects co-curated by Aaron S Moran (Poor Quality) and Sylvana dAngelo (Zine Club).

To cache is to archive, stash, collect and store. This project pulls together work from artists based in British Columbia who have produced books, but may not use the format as their primary medium. Other artists were asked to produce books for the first time as a potential extension of their practices.
