Zine Artists Happy Hour at Brooklyn Museum on Thursday, February 22. By Glenn Belverio

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I’m thrilled to be included in the Brooklyn Museum’s exhibition Copy Machine Manifestos: Artists Who Make Zines, with the Queer zine I co-published in the early ’90s, Pussy Grazer, with my collaborator Emily Nahmanson. Also included in the show is my 1993 video The Post-Queer Tour, a collaboration with filmmaker Bruce LaBruce for my Manhattan Public Access show “Glennda and Friends.”

This Thursday, February 22, I’ll be giving a presentation at the Museum’s Art History Happy Hour in celebration of the exhibition. I’ll be screening and discussing clips from my drag activist videos, featuring a Riot Grrrl conference, drag presidential candidate Joan Jett Blakk and a Queer takeover of the Empire State Building.

“Our latest season of Art History Happy Hour kicks off with an evening celebrating Copy Machine Manifestos: Artists Who Make Zines.
