Join us as we welcome guest curator Milo Miller of the Queer Zine Archive Project for an exhibition of page 'blow-ups' from the archive. This program is part of Shift: Guest Curators from the LGBTQ+ Community, a series of exhibitions, readings & performances celebrating work by LGBTQ+ writers & artists.

 

Pulling from the zines in the collection at QZAP, the Queer Zine Archive Project, and specifically featuring the work of Reb, the creator of the long-running Fanorama, this is an exhibition of hyper-enlarged page "blow-ups." The work itself is a reflection of the DIY nature of zines, presented as wheat-pasted posters to further engage readers and zine fans. The pieces represent a small fraction of the 2000+ zines archived at QZAP. Since 2003 they have been digitizing LGBTQ+ zines and ephemera, with over 500 available online to read for free.

 


Guest curator Milo Miller is one of the co-founders of QZAP, the Queer Zine Archive Project. Ze's been making zines in some form or another since ze was 16, and has been facilitating QZAP for the past 13 years. Hir current zines include Listicle! (a zine of delightful listicles), Rumpy Pumpy #1-5 and "Us Amazonians – A Kirsty MacColl Fanzine". Some of their past work can be found at qzap.org. Currently, ze lives in Riverwest, Milwaukee where ze plots non-violent revolution around a boomerang formica table bearing swanky cocktails and yummy edibles with zis partner-in-crime and their pet rock Nigel.
