Brown Paper Zine & Small Press Fair - 2018

Summer in NYC is the best! Sunshine, lots of fun events and ice cream trucks in every corner. I vended at Brown Paper Zine & Small Press Fair for both days this summer.  The event was free and for all ages!

About the Event

Brown Paper Zine & Small Press Fair
June 30 - July 1
12 - 6 pm

The James Room at Barnard Hall
3009 Broadway
New York, NY 10027

3 Dot Zine presents the second annual Brown Paper Zine and Small Press Fair, an environment where the creative efforts of Black artists and artists of color working in self publishing and printed mediums are exposed and proliferated. 3 Dot Zine is a collaborative, submission-based zine founded by artist Devin N. Morris in 2014 as a way to extend the reach of important dialogues Morris was having with his peers. For the second annual Brown Paper Zine & Small Press Fair we are excited to partner with the Studio Museum in Harlem. This Studio Salon program is presented as part of inHarlem, a dynamic range of initiatives, strategies, and activities built on the foundation of the Museum’s artist’s projects, permanent collection, and collaborative programs in the Harlem neighborhood.

Taking place at Barnard Hall, with the support of the Barnard Library, this year’s fair weaves together zine makers and artists within a broader community that has historically acted as a cultural quilt of sorts--composed of Black American life, artistic development, diversity and overall excellence. Like quilts, zines utilize similar properties in their design, composition, and binding. Multilayered publications, filled with visual and written dialogues, advice, and personal and political insights, act as places where care and direct communication are prioritized.

The mission remains to heighten visibility for artists of color and to encourage participation in fair environments and the self publishing industry at large.

Vending at LAZF 2018

For the first time ever, I took my art to the West Coast. I was a proud vendor at the 7th Annual L.A. Zine Fest on May 27, 2018. It was a dream come true to share my work with the L.A. community. I met some of my favorite creators from around the country such as St. Sucia, Breena Nuñez Peralta, Frijolera Press, Brown and Proud Press who also vended at the festival. Check out the exhibitor list here. Plus, I gave a workshop on the creative process behind my zine "Vos Cipota" during the festival.

Took place on October 22, 2017

What a thrill to be part of New Latin Wave 2017 at Brooklyn Bazaar! Lots of fantastic programming in one day. I participated in the Book and Zine Fair of NLW, curated by the wonderful Steph Orentas of La Liga Zine.

Also, I presented the launch of my second zine titled Vos Cipota that same day. Lots of feels. Photos of the launch are below.

What is New Latin Wave: Dedicated to celebrating the most current and compelling voices in Latinx art, music, literature and film, New Latin Wave is more than a cultural festival; it’s a multidisciplinary symposium that seeks to open conversations about Latinx and Latin American contributions and identity in the United States by creating a platform for performers, writers and artists.

Many thanks to Sokio and Amanda for organizing everything, Steph of La Liga Zine for curating the Book & Zine Fair and her wonderful support, Mayra for debuting Just Plush Play and all the amazing attendees who supported latinx arts in NYC. Pics below!
