MoCADA (80 Hanson Place, Brooklyn, NY) – 1st and 4th Floors Free RSVP

We are also thrilled to participate in a panel dicsussion on Sunday during the zine fair, moderated by Kimberly Drew. Social Sunday: Black Ink Zine Panel Sunday, January 29, 2:30-4pm Free RSVP

3 Dot Zine presents its first installment of the Brown Paper Zine and Small Press Fair for Black and PoC Artists as a part of programming for Diagram of the Heart, by Glenna Gordon, currently on view at the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA).

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.Throughout his time participating in zine fairs and festivals in New York, Baltimore, and Philadelphia, he noticed a lack of Black and People of Color (PoC) representation within these environments, which stood in stark contrast to the diverse independent publishing communities Morris found himself apart of.

As such, the Brown Paper Zine and Small Press Fair was created to provide a space where the creative efforts of Black and PoC artists working in print mediums could be exposed and proliferated. Bringing together established zine makers, small presses, and artists working in print mediums to MoCADA, the fair asks each participant to seek out new and young artists to showcase their zines, or facilitate the production of their print-based work. In addition to encouraging young artists to use zines as a viable, independent avenue for sharing their work, this effort also acquaints young makers with the communities that fairs create.

The Brown Paper Zine and Small Press Fair will occupy multiple locations within the MoCADA building as the weekend boasts inclusive programming in the way of; the Women’s Healing Space, a writing workshop and a space for women to check in, be seen, heard and affirmed while in community with each other; a screening of #BlackGirlLit: Between Literature, Performance & Memory, a documentary exploring “black woman-ness” and the literary traditions that inform it, featuring artists Ayana Evans, Kal Gezahegn, Dell M. Hamilton, Tsedaye Makonnen, Helina Metaferia and Marceline Mandeng; Social Sunday: Black Ink, a panel discussion interrogating the world of self-publishing and the instance where inspiration leads to action; and more to be announced.

Last night’s phone chat…

Mom: I need you to draw me a picture of a nude Man and Woman, preferably in charcoal or graphite- in long strokes- I have a reference image.
Me: o.O Say what?
Mom: I need it for my bathroom remodel, the artwork I found in the store is $95, I know you can do it.
Me: And what makes you think I’d charge you any less?

Artist talk w/ #blkgrlswurld July 18th, NYC

Head over to the Manhattan Graphics Center for an evening with Blkgrlswurld ZINE creator, Christina Long, MFA. For details please see http://www.manhattangraphicscenter.org/artisttalks.html

Saturday, 6:30–8:30 pm | Saturday, July 18 2015

Bio: Born in Chicago and raised in Metro Detroit, Christina Long received her MFA in Printmaking from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012. Her art practice explores non-traditional printmaking through stop-motion animation, hand crafted artist books and wall mural installations. With a child-like desire for an imaginative landscape she plays with cultural mythologies to share her experiences with blackness, heavy music and illness. Being heavily involved in the metalcore music scene for over a decade, she cares about exposing its supposed lack of African American Female presence through a collabroative art zine known as #Blkgrlswurld.
