About this event

Join us for one or all three! Saturday, January 13, 2024: 1-3 pm In this workshop, we will look through the gallery of queer expression that has come together in The Embodied Press: Queer Abstraction and the Artists’ Book. Participants will see the boundaries of what we call a book to be tested and then participate in creating zines and pushing those boundaries in new directions. Working with a variety of materials we will cover different formats, layouts, and subject matter students can use in their process as well as how zines are a vehicle for independent publishing. ParticipantsStudents are encouraged, as in the exhibition, to “revel in visual abstraction as an antidote to the daily pressure of navigating our identities.” *This workshop series is partially funded through our community programming funds related to The Embodied Press exhibition. Bio: Elaine Ponce is an illustrator and makes artwork with honor and gratitude to our natural world centered around themes of ecology, folklore, and community. Their work aims to excite others about our outside world and all its wonder as well as how our mentality surrounding nature is affected by current colonial systems of power. Elaine is living and making art within the territory of xučyun, on the unceded land of Ohlone people past and present. (Oakland, California)
