When: 
Friday, October 20, 2017 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

The Hawn Gallery presents Collective Practice: Community Building Through Zines, works by Puro Chingón Collective, comprised of James Huizar, Claudia Zapata and Claudia Aparicio-Gamundi. The works on display include prints, short films, and zines largely from the collective’s own publication, ChingoZine. Zines are similar to magazines, but rather than ones seen on newsstands, they are noncommercial, often homemade or digitally created. They specialize in unconventional subject matter that reflects the subcultures or communities the creators belong to.
