Employing alternative methods of production and distribution to create books, zines, and video work, the exhibiting artists work with a variety of themes to actively engage a wide audience.

As a satellite to the exhibition, Double Break Gallery (located at 1821 5th Avenue in Bankers Hill) will be showing new zines by: Josh Atlas, Jessica Greenfield, Ben Hernstrom, Jennifer Murray, and Jessica Vaughn.
Darin Klein & Friends dig deep into the archive to create two fantastic installations for the exhibition Do Anything. One is a new wallpaper specially produced for the showcasing reproductions of highlights from my collection of queer publications. The other is a handmade vitrine (thanks, Jimmy!) containing a pretty astounding array of tiny artists’ publications and multiples from my collection that measure under a quarter page in size.
