The Copyist Conspiracy focuses on nine zine makers whose photocopied works were spawned from the1990s punk rock movement. Displaying art work, photos, and paste-ups that have gone into their xeroxed creations for over the last 10 years, the Copyist Conspiracy explores these 9 zinesters contributions to the world of small press and inadvertently the aesthetic of contemporary punk culture.

In addition, to the art on the walls the event will also serve as a zine release party welcoming new issues of Sobstory?, Tales of Blarg, and Scenery into the world.

Saturday November 19th, 6-9pm
