SUBSTRATE: Printed Matter from the Rust Belt
10.24 – 12.07
Scene Metrospace
Opening Reception: October 24th, 6-9pm
With the decline of large scale manufacturing in post-industrial America, there is a desire by many to reclaim small scale production. The past several years has seen a rise of independent publishing across the United States with increased visibility and availability of zines and art books, and a DIY ethos which embraces exploration, technique and radical production methods. SUBSTRATE explores the politics and poetics of print in the Rust Belt, asking the viewer to think about the relationship between landscape, the material environment, and printed matter.
