During the last weekend in January, Codify Art was invited to participate in the first ever Brown Paper Zine & Small Press Fair For Black and PoC Artists at MoCADA Museum, presented by 3 Dot Zine. In this festival, Artist Devin Morris—the founder of 3 Dot Zine—curated a space where the creative efforts of Black and PoC artists working in print mediums could be celebrated.
Codify Art’s table featured work from 6 Brooklyn-based QTPOC artists:
Sharina Gordon - Searching for a Home that Holds All of Me (2017)
Samir Hazlehurst - RECIPE BOOK a year and a month of (2016)
Jarrett Key - Judges 16:28 (2016); Trans (2017)

Kat JK Lee - natur (2017)
Maya Meredith - Wade in The Water Zine (2015)
All of the work is available for purchase on Codify’s Online Bookstore
This event was an overwhelming success for Codify Art. We sold every zine on our table by this remarkable group of artists. Special shout out to Sharina Gordon for selling 27 copies of her very first zine! Jon Key’s WE, Manifesto, and Tenth Zine Vol. IV were featured on The Creators Project at Vice. Codify Art is grateful for the efforts of Devin, 3 Dot Zine, and the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Art (MoCADA) for hosting such an empowering event.
