Thursday-Saturday, August 27-29, MOCA Cleveland presents Mimeo Revolution: Artist Book + Zine Fair in connection with the summer exhibition How to Remain Human (on view through September 5). This 3-day event is inspired by poet and publisher d.a. levy and renowned comix creator and graphic novelist Derf Backderf, key figures in the exhibition.
The spirit of levy's work (rebellious, ardent, and resolutely DIY), lives on in self-published artist books, zines, spoken word poets, and underground comix artists. As such, the Artist Book + Zine Fair will feature independent bookstores, small presses, zine-makers, and pop-up exhibitions from 20+ artists from across the region and beyond. There is an entire line-up of programs and pop-up exhibitions inspired by levy and Derf all listed in the schedule below.
- Daily admission is $8 for programs and exhibitions, free for Members.
- Art Book + Zine Fair admission is free.
- Thursday's Beat Uptown with Obnox and Archie and the Bunkers is a free live concert.
