“Autoptic is an arts festival that celebrates independent print culture, with an emphasis on comics and print-based multiples as well as alternative & small press labels of varying media.

“Autopic 2018 will feature table exhibitions by more than 100 artists from the worlds of comics, posters and beyond. With a strong focus on publications and artwork that feature original, creator-driven content and compelling DIY aesthetics, Autoptic 2018 will give exhibitors an opportunity to connect with other like-minded artists and audiences while also offering attendees a chance to support and discover all manner of exciting, new and independent artists and creators.

“At its core, Autoptic is a juried, expo-style show, but orbiting the expo are readings and talks, artist showcases, and events, held throughout Minneapolis.”
