Celebrate your love of zines the night before Brooklyn Zine Fest begins at BHS with Brain Frame, an evening of comics and zine artists sharing work that's impossible to put on the printed page.
Founded in 2011 by Lyra Hill, Brain Frame provides a space for comics, zine artists, and others interested in the subject to share their work in front of an open-minded audience. Brain Frame may include costumes, cardboard, projection, puppetry, props, songs, soundscapes, speeches, primal screams, smoke machines, and more! Readers are encouraged to be as weird and ambitious as possible.
Praise for Brain Frame includes Gapers Block calling it "one of the most exciting things happening in comics," and The Chicago Tribune described it as a "mildly loopy, wildly eclectic and passionately adored comics-and-performance watchamacallit/updated '60's freak out/cartooning-community rallying point."
Come and see for yourself on Friday, April 25th!
Including performances by:
Friday, April 25th, 8pm
$8 / $5 for BHS Members

When & Where
Brooklyn Historical Society
Founded in 1863, Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) functions as a library, museum, and urban education center dedicated to the people of Brooklyn, providing opportunities for civic dialogue and thoughtful engagement. Each year, 70,000 students and teachers use our innovative programs and resources to learn about American History and scholars conduct important academic research in our Library and Archives. Through partnerships with government and community groups, BHS reaches communities throughout New York City, serving as a hub for information and ideas about Brooklyn and its complex history.
Housed in a magnificent Landmark Building in Brooklyn Heights, designed by George Post in 1878, BHS maintains an important collection of historical manuscripts, books, photographs, maps, paintings, objects, and ephemera dating back to the 17th century. BHS is a long-standing yet modern institution in both outlook and action. We are Brooklyn’s preeminent history center, responsible for preserving and presenting Brooklyn’s history; our collection continues to grow through the acquisition of contemporary and historical works of art, photographs, documents, books, and oral histories.
