Zine Scene: Twenty Years of ARCMTL is an exhibition of zines and artists’ books drawn from the extensive collections of ARCMTL (Archive Montreal) – the Montreal-based, non-profit organization that promotes and presents independent culture. Jenny Lin and Eloisa Aquino, curators of the exhibition, have organized an eclectic selection of works organized by theme that highlight “… a wide array of subjects, covering personal / autobiographical (perzines), health, subcultures (e.g. punk, vegan), politics (e.g. antifascist, feminist, queer) and often using a variety of languages and expressions, from poetry to visual art, photographs, comics, fiction and essays.”

The exhibition coincides with two annual events: the artists’ book fair VOLUME 2 MTL (Oct. 1-6, 2019) and the zine and alternative press fair Expozine 2019 (Nov. 16-17, 2019).

The Webster Library is pleased to hold a related event in conjunction with Zine Scene: Twenty Years of ARCMTL:
