Students in this project were inspired to create an exhibition for which the exhibition venue would be filled to maximum capacity on the night of the reception in April. However, by the time that the students returned from their trip to NYC, it became clear that the COVID-19 pandemic would make that exhibition impossible. In response, while retaining “maximum capacity” as the motivating prompt, the students pivoted and created new work for this zine rather than for a traditional exhibition. By definition, the zine is small yet the students’ work addresses important topics such as infrastructure, possessions, technology, femininity, stereotypes, success, religion, culture, inequity, identity, family, and competition.
