Zine Workshop with Rachael Banks
Saturday, November 23, 2019
10:00 AM to 1:00 PM
The Carnegie Center for Art and History is offering a free, 3-hour workshop for adults (ages 18+) on creating zines. Zines are independent, self-published booklets that became relevant during the punk scene from the 1970’s. Zines are generally non-conformist in nature and usually tied to a small circulation. Topics can be broad and zines have become an important medium of creative expression for many artists. This event is free but registration is required here: https://nafclibrary.libcal.com/event/6027124
Leading this workshop is Rachael Banks, who is the Carnegie Center’s featured artist during the 2019 Louisville Photo Biennial. Her exhibition, Like a Bad Penny, is currently on view at the Carnegie. Banks also creates zines as a regular part of her activity as an artist and has published several, sold-out titles. Banks is an Assistant Professor of Photography at Northern Kentucky University in Newport, KY. She received her MFA in photography from Texas Women’s University in Denton, TX and has exhibited her work regionally, nationally, and internationally.
