Zine Review: Manifesto #1

Published by Ed Tillman
This small (four by five and a half inch) zine concerns itself with art. That is to say, fine art. Manifesto's introduction to the world starts with an accounting of a conversation among friends about what constitutes art. After the futility of that question is established, the rest of the zine features short snippets by various artists on a variety of art-related subjects. "Polaroid” waxes nostalgic for that archaic camera and film. “Dirty Filthy Art” recommends good old preservative-filled white bread to clean up old paintings, and “Plate Glass Observations” is people watching in an LA neighborhood through the window of a tiny Greek restaurant. If you're artistically inclined or merely artistically interested in art, this zine was made with you in mind. [edtillman]
