Pop-Up Exhibition on TuesdayOctober 13, 2012
This Tuesday there is a chance to see some examples from UCL’s collection of little magazines and alternative press publications. Slade librarian Liz Lawes, MA LIS candidate Siobhan Britton and I have selected items that reflect some of the wide range of materials – from The Yellow Book through to the 21st Century.
We have emphasised some of the more DIY forms, because on Tuesday evening Siobhan and I are running a zine-making workshop, and want attendees to see some of the effective things that can be achieved with a photocopier … or a carefully-folded and cut piece of paper … or even a matchbox. However, we have included some pieces with high production values, like Aspen.
Liz let me take this photo of some of the items to promote the exhibition. If you study or work near Gower Street, do pop in and see us between 2 and 4 pm on Tuesday 16 October. The exhibition is free, as part of the Strindberg’s Red Room series, and is co-sponsored by UCL Festival of Reading, as a taster of some of the events you can expect in March next year.
