ZINES! The interesting and wonderful world of DIY culture. What is a Zine you may ask? A Zine is a handmade and self-published magazine that can be reproduced in a cost-effective manner and distributed to the public or traded with other zine creators and collectors. They can include many forms of printed matter, from limited-run artist books to cut-and-paste photocopy fanzines, and everything in between. ‘The Zine Scene’ exhibition explores the origins of zines from the original punk fanzines of the 1970’s, to the indie alternative zines of the 1990’s, and the evolution of what artists create today with a mix of various themes and ideas. Zines can be about anything, simple or complex, featuring culturally-loaded objects or themes, and even completely random things. Zines date back to the early 1930’s, but to this day continue to be vital in providing individuals with a means to share and express their ideas and opinions. This unique exhibition will highlight those viewpoints and promote the importance of self-publishing for all. We invite you to express your self and submit your best work to be featured within ‘The Zine Scene’ exhibition.



This exhibition is open to all artists living in the US. Zines must not have been previously exhibited with TCAA. All zines must be ready for display. All zines will be hung on the wall with a clip, if other hanging systems are required due to delicate work, the artist is responsible for providing that with their zine. No zines shall violate any copyright. Zines should be appropriate for all audiences. If your zine includes mature content, please let us know so it can be screened for our viewers. If you wish to donate your zines to our zine/artist book library at the end of the show, we welcome any submissions, please let us know. All zines will remain in the gallery for the duration of the exhibit. There is no submission fee for this exhibition. Artists may submit up to 3 zines.



First, complete the online submission form on our website. Second, drop off or ship your zines to the gallery. Zine submissions will not be juried. Once you have completed your submission form, you can deliver/ship your zines to the gallery anytime before the due date. Submissions received without complete information will not be considered. A confirmation email will let you know that we have received your submission. Contact TCAA at or 218-833-0416 with questions.
