Punk, politics and art on show in new exhibition at State Library Victoria

We're thrilled to have our zines and artists' book included in the forthcoming exhibition, Self-made: Zines and Artist Books. Read Punk, politics and art on show in new exhibition at State Library Victoria to discover more.

Developed in partnership with The Sticky Institute, Self-made will display rarely-seen material from the Library’s collection of artist books and its zine collection — the largest and most comprehensive in Australia. Exhibition curator Monica Syrette said Self-made will take visitors on a journey through the colourful and sometimes controversial evolution of self-publishing.

"The history of zine-making and self-publishing is inextricably linked to influential counter-cultural movements and social activism. What we’re displaying — items like sci-fi zines from the 1940s, punk zines from the seventies and contemporary feminist zines — are all reflections of the political and cultural movements of the time. The artist books in Self-made were also ground-breaking, designed to circumvent the commercial gallery system and make art easily available to all."

The exhibition features works by leading international artists including Swiss German artist, Dieter Roth; Pop Art influenced American artist, Ed Ruscha; pioneering conceptual artist Sol LeWitt; and renowned Australian painter, sculptor and printmaker, Robert Jacks; alongside works by contemporary artists and zine-makers. More than 170 works will be on display, including a dedicated reading lounge, revealing the breadth and beauty of artist books and zines.
