Wicked Women put together a zine for Zinefest 2018 featuring female artists Diane Arbus, Marina Abramovic, Elizabeth Catlett, Anita Berber, Yolanda Lopez and Kara Walker. Hopefully, more volumes to come! Also, check out this article on a new database for female artists from the 15th-19th centuries: Space of Their Own
Phoenix Zine Fest is coming up October 28th at Unexpected Gallery! Time to get to work!
Our installation “Tidal Remix” at Third Space and table at Unexpected Gallery. It was a great collaboration experience and a blast hanging out with everyone. Also, the final installation of our piece is shown; it really improves the creepy alley vibe.

We will be doing an installation on about a 4 ft X 5 ft fence panel! They ask for installation pieces with an emphasis on using recycled materials and trash. We want to use old tapes, cds and vinyl to create a wave. There is also an recycled fashion show and hat parade with the theme “Undersea Madness.” The possibility of renting a small table for selling goods is available. The rental fees vary from $15-$50. Let me know if you are interested!
Here is the link to the Zine Fest on Oct. 22 at Unexpected Gallery. Let Belem know if you have anything you would like to sell. We have half a table in real estate.
