This weekend's Zine Fest was a great alternative space to find some new art and reminds me why I always looks beyond conventional galleries.
I got a couple of copies of Jesse Reklaw's little book applicant. In his own description: "See what no one was supposed to see again: pictures of hopeful students, accompanied by unflattering, behind-doors quotes from their professors and employers. Distills the essence of a bygone era from a dumpstered stash of confidential biology applicant files circa 1965-1975." Also found some groovy little buttons made out of old MUNI Fast Passes. Was very tempted, and really need to get one of Oakland artist Benjamin Chan's cityscapes.
The next event to watch for is A.P.E. (Alternative Press Expo) coming up in October.
