Yo-NEWYORK! Collaborative Artist Project & Zine

$5,050

Yo-NEWYORK! is an open submission collaborative project between visual artists, writers and poets that results in a unique, handmade artist book assembled in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, serving as a time capsule of the city right now, from artists you might not have ever heard of or seen before.

 What Makes this Zine Different from All Others? Each contributing artist or writer gets one piece of paper to fill however they’d like. To make the zine, we stack all these pages together and fold them over, this automatically takes half of the artist’s page and pairs it up with another half of another person’s page. The result is a surreal flow featuring multiple views of the city at this moment in time. From this process, we’ve had amazing visual conversations between brilliant writers and artists working right now in NYC. (See photo above)
