That’s pretty self-explanatory. Details follow.
For those that don’t know, Anno Domini is the best gallery in San Jose. They’ve been written about here before.
We at Anno Domini are resurrecting our Art of Zines exhibition (a former annual event) and we are contacting you because we are still in need of great zines. We believe zines are one of the last frontiers for freedom of speech and self expression and we need it now more than ever.
We are especially interested in art, music, poetry, photography and other creative disciplines but are open to all zines in any format and content. Current and past issues are accepted, one copy of each is adequate. (If you choose, you may send zine multiples and/or promo cards and we’ll put it out on the counter for the taking.)
Our audience is very diverse at our openings, we typically expect 800+ people to come through and the exhibit will run for approximately 6 weeks.
Please note we do not return zines, nor will we sell them (they are just for exhibit and enjoyment purposes), but we do induct them into our zine library so they may live on.
The opening is on First Friday February 5th, 8pm ’til late. We’ll have live bands and zine makers in the area are invited to be present to sell their zines (please let us know if you’d like to sell at the opening, there are no vendor fees nor commission on sales, but all spaces must be reserved.)
We’d like to have all the zines in hand by January 16th, 2010. Feel free to contact us should you have additional questions or would like to reserve vendor space.
If you are a Zine DISTRO (or have a collection you’d like to contribute) and can send larger quantities (100+) of various zines, we would be willing to pay for ground shipping and make sure your business cards are made available to our patrons.
Lastly, we would appreciate it if you could extend this invitation to other zine makers, forums and / or blogs so they may have an opportunity to exhibit as well.
We’d love it if you can contribute – please let us know! peace, and thank you!
