Sunday, November 19

The Brooklyn Museum
200 Eastern Parkway
Brooklyn, NY 11238

The museum has limited visitor capacity. We encourage guests to arrive early and be prepared for potential wait times to enter the fair.

The Sunday Zine Fair is free and the exhibition, Copy Machine Manifestos: Artists Who Make Zines, requires a general admission ticket, which is by suggested donation.


Printed Matter is pleased to present Sunday Zine Fair, a special day-long event held on the occasion of the Brooklyn Museum’s expansive survey exhibition on artists’ zines, Copy Machine Manifestos: Artists Who Make Zines. The Fair will convene more than 60 invited exhibitors in the museum’s pavilion and adjoining gallery space, with an emphasis on self-publishing artists and collectives, archives and libraries, and rare & out of print dealers.

Against the backdrop of the historical show, the Sunday Zine Fair will celebrate the origins of zines and honor the many important contributors to its diverse legacy, a number of whom are represented within the exhibition. A new generation of publishers working today will also present a range of styles and perspectives on the medium. In tandem with this Fair, Printed Matter will also launch a new website inviting participating artists and publishers to share sources of inspiration in their practice, creating an explorable index of influence and artistic lineage. 


The nearest Subway station is the Eastern Parkway/Brooklyn Museum 2/3. This subway station is ADA accessible. The closest Bus stops are: B41 and B69 at Grand Army Plaza, and the B45 at St. Johns Place and Washington Ave. 

The Brooklyn Museum and grounds are fully wheelchair accessible. Wheelchairs are available free of charge at the Coat Check in the lobby. Masks are optional and available on site for all visitors.
