Exhibition at Sticky
Opening Friday 13 September 6 – 7pm
I’m having an exhibition in the window and on the back wall of Sticky.
It’s at shop 10, Campbell Arcade (near Flinders St Station), Melbourne (as if you didn’t know). Rose Turtle Ertler will be playing songs on the opening night. If I can arrange time off work I’ll be there. Whether or not I’m there, if you can make it, please go along. Buy some zines, support zine distros, support Sticky! Thanks heaps to Luke for organising everything and for making the beautiful flyer.
Here’s a photo of the work in progress, inside the studio I share, Junior Gazette:
And where it all started, inside my work locker:
The second season of the Dexter Fletcher Feminist Film Club starts on Sunday 8 September with Dreams of a Life (2011, Carol Morley). The theme for this block of screenings is ‘The City’, and we’ll also be showing A Taste of Honey and Persepolis. All screenings at Junior Gazette, Level 1, 91 Railway Pde, Marrickville. Full details on the flyer below.

I made a couple of news zines. First is a new issue of Tomorrow’s Machine Today, my zine inspired by music I discovered through mix tapes. This time it’s about my first record, discovering grunge, summer holidays, discovering Hole, discovering feminism. It’s $3 (plus postage) and available from Take Care.
The other one’s an elongated (approx 28x14cm) booklet of small collages and drawings about caves and underground worlds, amateur printing, intuition, libraries and figuring stuff out. The inside pages are photocopied (a few in colour) and the cover image is a two part Gocco print. The title and inside back cover credits were printed on the Sleepless Nights Press, Tim’s beautiful Adana 8×5″ letterpress. $5 from Take Care.
I also made a bunch of prints, about 14x15cm, of the cover image and text (same deal, Gocco and letterpress combination). It’s $2. The print and zine cover are both printed on acid free paper, like REAL ART.
Rizzeria Zine Club
You’ve probably heard about the Rizzeria’s great new space in the Rocks. On Thurday 29 August from 5 – 7pm the first of a (hopefully) monthly zine club get together will take place, and you, print-head, should go. It’s at the Metcalfe Arcade, Shop 5/80-84 George St, The Rocks (a bit up from the MCA). While you’re there, take a walk round poor old Millers Point before it’s completely screwed forever by the Barangaroo Development and Packer’s multi-squillion dollar VIP casino that you’ll never even be able to go near because it’ll be fitted with a laser beam that fries all proles within a hundred metre radius. Sigh. Anyway, go to the Rizzeria’s space, a strange anomaly in this strange city. Miss Helen drew this excellent logo for it the zine club:
I re-printed a stack of old zines – I sent a bunch down to Sticky and I’m gonna give a bunch to the Rizzeria, too. And of course Take Care has some. Old zines!
Alrighty then, that’s all for now. So many things to do, so many zines to read…
