25 Apr Taipa Village Cultural Association Proudly Presents its first Collective Exhibition “SEE. SAW. ZINE? Publish Yourself!”
Taipa Village Cultural Association is delighted to announce its collaboration with ZINECOOP Hong Kong in launching “SEE. SAW. ZINE? Publish Yourself!”, an exhibition that aims to promote self-published mediums, and to facilitate exchanges between Hong Kong and Macau artists.
ZINECOOP, an art organisation in Hong Kong made up of a group of like-minded artists and designers, aims to promote various social, subculture and counterculture topics through the publication of “zines” – a short form of “fanzines” – handmade, low-cost, low-circulation magazines. The group connects “zinesters”, book fairs, zine stores and readers.
Mastered by the creative minds of three Hong Kong artists – Beatrix Pang, Forrest Lau and Ranee Ng – the exhibition showcases an extensive collection of zines and other printed materials in broadsheet and risograph formats, featuring different themes relating to society, daily life and many other issues, using text, sketches, images, diagrams, photos and wildly imaginative illustrations.
“We are glad to introduce ZINECOOP to Macau residents and tourists, and to inspire all with local zine culture through the works on display, an onsite reading zone, as well as a series of talk shows and workshops during the exhibition period for public engagement.” says João Ó, President of the Executive Board at Taipa Village Cultural Association. “This exhibition will also serve as a cultural exchange platform to encourage self-publishing collaborations between ZINECOOP and local art groups and to strengthen the cultural interchange within the Pearl River Delta Region.”
As 2019’s kick-off show at Taipa Village Art Space, the edgy exhibition marks another step in the transformation of Taipa Village into a lively centre for artistic and cultural endeavour, and provides a valuable addition to the diversity of the artworks at the venue. The exhibition will give another boost to the goals and vision of Taipa Village Cultural Association in its promotion of art and cultural exchanges, and to fostering the sustainable development of non-gaming tourism in Macau.
