Subscription to Mischief: Graffiti Zines of the 1990s
A first-of-its-kind exhibition captures the innovation and community of graffiti, as seen in the pages of indie publications.
Featuring Greg Lamarche’s archives and Letterform Archive’s collection of graffiti magazines, Subscription to Mischief, opening on May 6, 2023, explores over 40 graffiti zines with a special focus on the making of Skills Magazine. It highlights original works by prominent and lesser-known writers of the era through the pieces, throwups, and handstyles featured in letters, flick trade photos, and magazine submissions. Taking a close look at practitioners as documentarians, and how magazines served as launch pads for creative careers, Subscription to Mischief is a time capsule of graffiti letterforms and a tribute to the community formed through snail mail.
