Common Sense(s)

February 20 – April 10, 2016
Gallery Reception: Saturday, February 20, 2016, 5-7pm

Common Sense(s), features a compilation of photozines and related ephemera by over 50 artists. Curated by CPW’s Juan Madrid and artist Carlos Loret de Mola, the exhibition examines what constitutes a “zine” in contemporary photographic practice. This exhibition amalgamates obsessions and issues, structure and chaos, sense and nonsense, into a visual assault reflective of the photozine itself. Artists and publishers include 3 Dot Zine, Adrian Octavius Walker, Akemi Hiatt, Alejandro Cartagena, Amanda Chestnut, Anna Leigh Clem, Bob Civil, Curtis Hamilton, Dan Boardman, David Schoerner, Downgrade Magazine, Ed Panar, Elle Pérez, Empty Stretch, Erica Christmas, Evan Ortiz, Everything Is Collective, Fryd Frydendahl, Ginevra Shay, Halfling Zine, Louie Palu, Mambu Badu, Megawords Magazine, Meghan Boilard, Meron Menghistab, Michael Max McLeod, Michael McCraw, Mohamed Sadek, Oranbeg Press, Papersafe, Patrick Bresnan, Rob Hornstra, Ron Jude, Sasha Phyars-Burgess, Stephanie Segura, Suzanna Zak, Tammy Mercure, Terranova, Trevor Clement, Varvara Mikushkina, and VUU.
