"Long before online blogs, Facebook rants, and Tumblr communities were ubiquitous, zines were a form of communication created for the people, by the people. These little handmade booklets are made by artists and activists to disseminate in coffee shops, bookstores, college campuses, and other hot spots. Their purpose varies. Some are intended to educate and pass along information, others feature political rants, some have great art, while others are about celebrating underground culture. The zine and its rich and ongoing legacy will be celebrated in Light Grey Art Lab's latest show, "STACKS." For the exhibition, over 60 artists from around the world have created zines designed to take viewers through time, from 1984 to 2014. Each work takes on a tone and theme personal to the artist, and includes things like childhood memories, influential moments in pop culture, pivotal decisions in politics, and more. There are celebrations of teen angst, explorations of '80s hairstyles, thoughts on Legend of Zelda and Pokemon games, and trips through the streets of New York City. These pieces come together to create a timeline of sorts, but they are unlike any history book you will ever read. There will be an opening reception from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, August 1.)" --Jessica Armbruster, City Pages
