Zine Dream Window at Art Metropole

Zine Dream 7 Opening Party & Window Exhibit 
by Eunice Luk and Alicia Nauta
Friday, August 8th, 2014 at Art Metropole
1490 Dundas Street West, Toronto

Eunice Luk and Alicia Nauta create a collaborative window of larger than life wooden book sculptures exploring the form and function of zines and artist books. Three different sculptures consider some of the many forms a book can take, and celebrate the potential of printed matter as a platform for creating, sharing and circulating ideas. The sculptures represent independent publishing as a way to create an alternative to the traditional art object, encouraging experimentation in an accessible form.

New Chance (Victoria Cheong) is performing *IN THE WINDOW* at 8:30PM sharp!

Celebrate ZINE DREAM in its 7th year, August 10 at the TRANZAC

Closing show with Healing Power Records

I've had a series of screenprints up at the Tranzac since the beginning of June. Healing Power and I collaborated on putting together this show as a closing party and as part of their monthly series at the Tranzac. Really excited about this! Here is my poster for the show:

poster and handbill

 I've been really into rugs lately. Using an op art pattern screenprinted first in red then blue, I attempted to make a texture that would resemble a woven fabric. The bottom handbill is risographed by Colour Code.

Spins and Needles show

I will have some work in a print show in Ottawa this weekend, and I also did an interview with these guys! you can read it here:


Alicia-Nauta-printing-at-punchlock-800
Next up in our Prints & Inks profile is Toronto-based artist Alicia Nauta. Her practice falls under what she likes to call Alicia’s Klassic Kool Shoppecollage, screenprinting, installation, bookworks, occasionally weird papier maché, and a growing collection of found oddities. Right now you can find her screenprinted wallpaper all around the city, such as at the independent shop Likely General, in the lobby of The Drake Hotel, and in the staircase of DIY art/music venue Double Double Land.
As an OCAD student, she established the OCAD University Zine Library in 2007 (read more how and why she did so here). Currently, Alicia works as a Programmer at artist-run centre Xpace Cultural Centre, where she co-established the new Library, including a zine Library, mix tape library and curated library. She is a member of Punchclock print studio.

Here’s what she had to say about her work:
