What is a zine? A zine (/ˈziːn/ ZEEN; short for magazine or fanzine) is most commonly a small-circulation, self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images, usually reproduced via photocopier or similarly inexpensive means. Zines are usually the product of a single person, or of a very small group. The primary intent is to advance the views of the creator rather than profit, since the time and materials necessary to create a zine are seldom matched by revenue from its sale. Zines tend to deal with subjects that are too controversial or niche for mainstream media.
SPF’19 exhibitors will take over The Projects in FATVillage, Fort Lauderdale, a 8,000+ sq ft warehouse space, celebrating the growing interest and support for independent and small press artists and publishers that have fueled the sub-culture in South Florida for years.
The FAR Gallery will dedicate its gallery space to a special guest exhibition of printmaking works from regional cultural hubs around the country.
Funding for SPF’19 is provided in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council and others.
