Zine There Done That

Sonny Day - Shtick 2

14 April till 10 June, 2018

Part exhibition, part publication, and making space Zine There Done That is a hands-on collaboration between, young people and the artist Sonny Day.

A selection of work from the Orange Regional Gallery collection will act as inspiration in a series of graphic, art-making sessions throughout the April School Holidays.

Local artist, Sonny Day will introduce students to the self-expressive world of zine making, exploring examples of zines from around the world and guiding them through their own creative enquiry of the medium using simple materials and works from the ORG Collection as visual inspiration. Sonny will compile the completed student works into a limited edition zine.

Zine There Done That will include a selection of works from the ORG Collection, an installation of student work created during the workshops and a making space where visitors can contribute to the project through their own creative responses.  Copies of the final zines will also be available.

A zine (/ˈziːn/ zeen; an abbreviation of fanzine, or magazine) is most commonly a small circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images usually reproduced via photocopier.
