Creativity Explored

Location
3245 16th Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

Whipper Snapper Nerd, 1993 by John Patrick McKenzie (Issue #3), inspired the title of the zine series

Join us for the opening reception of Whipper Snapper Nerd!

Guest curators Harrell Fletcher and Elizabeth Meyer return to Creativity Explored to revisit their popular Whipper Snapper Nerd zine series.

Launched 25 years ago as a project to raise awareness of the lives and work of CE artists, Whipper Snapper Nerd is a self-published magazine or zine. Each issue is devoted to one artist and includes selections of their work and an interview.

The exhibition looks back at the original eight issues of the zine and celebrates two new ones devoted to current artists Christina Marie Fong and Gerald Wiggins. This retrospective coincides with a new book, featuring selections from all 10 issues of the zine produced to date.

Combining original artwork, zine excerpts, and videos created with CE artists, Whipper Snapper Nerd is not to be missed!

Featured artists include Barbara Doehrman, Christina Marie Fong, David Jarvey, Andrew Li, Michael Bernard Loggins, Robert Margolis, John Patrick McKenzie, James Miles, Diane Scaccalosi, and Gerald Wiggins.

Curated by Harrell Fletcher and Elizabeth Meyer
