Kyle Mace: Globe Gallery Transmission No. 1

As the Globe Gallery resident here at People’s Liberty, my first month or so has been marked by discoveries both big and small. My first day alone provided the opportunity to meet some people who blew me away with their compassion, creativity and talent, and those scenarios have only increased since.

Once such scenario was the opportunity to curate Limited Press, an exhibit of zines and small press publications that were on display during the weeks between Globe Gallery Grant installations. During those weeks Limited Press received some truly wonderful submissions from a wide array of disciplines, all of which showcased the deep, ever-widening pool of creative talent that exists here in Cincinnati. Below are just a few of my favorite selections from Limited Press.

 DJ Trischler's  Design is Trash is Design  is a collection of collages and visual compositions that are designed using upcycled, found materials that were originally designed objects in their own right. By sourcing such material for this zine, Trischler gives the discarded designs new life and makes us consider the ephemeral nature of the visual artifacts in our own environment.

 Sidney Hiley's  Blur  is incredible, both in terms of the fabrication and the content within.  Blur  is a chapbook of poems accompanied that address a variety of topics, all crafted with a great attention to the way they appear on the page. That same detail is applied to accompanying images, many of which were printed on transparent velum, which adds a wonderful depth to  Blur .

  Manifesto  is a photo book by Elliott Gress and the Naptown Collective. As a skater,  Manifesto  resonates with me because it captures perfectly the spontaneity and excitement of skateboarding and exploring in New York City and the Midwest, and all of the adventures ensue.
