On Saturday March 8, from 12pm - 6pm the Alternative Press Center Library (APC) will open its doors to the public for the first time since its recent return to Baltimore. In conjunction with the Fifth Annual Publications and Multiples Fair, the APC will exhibit two powerful collections of printed material, generated during historic moments of social unrest, one in Paris 1968 and the other around the globe in 2008: Crisis Image Archives and Atelier Populaire.

Crisis Image Archives (http://crisisimagearchives.tumblr.com/) is an ongoing research project documenting all of the visual representations of "the crisis" appearing in the last 5 years of the 300 magazines and journals archived in the Alternative Press Center (now located in Baltimore).

The project's organizer Daniel Tucker will be on hand to answer questions. Tucker earned his MFA at the University of Illinois at Chicago, was founding editor of AREA Chicago, and is currently working on a project about the right-wing sci-fi political imagination.

Alongside the Crisis Image Archives, a selection of rare graphic prints from the 1968 Paris youth movement's Atelier Populaire (popular workshop) has been selected from the APC archives to be displayed as well.
