Today see’s the opening of the tenth annual NY Art Book Fair presented by Printed Matter and is running until 20th September 2015. Located at MoMA PS1, Long Island City, Queens, this premier event is free to visit and browse the collections of stimulating and intoxicating artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines in abundance.
Last year the NY Art Book Fair attracted over 35,000 people and it’s not difficult to see how. Fast forward to this year and over 370 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, institutions and independent publishers from twenty-eight countries will be featuring throughout the duration.
With an ever-growing variety of exhibitors – from the zinesters in (XE)ROX & PAPER + SCISSORS and the Small Press Dome representing publishing at its most innovative and affordable, to rare and antiquarian dealers offering out-of-print books and ephemera from art and artist book history, plus the NYABF-classic Friendly Fire, focused on the intersections of art and activism. Plus, an array of special events in ‘The Classroom’ which is a curated engagement of informal conversations, workshops, readings, and other artist-led interventions, and ‘The Contemporary Artists’ Book Conference’ (CABC), featuring two full days on emerging practices and issues within art-book culture. – we highly recommend you pop by for a visual treat if you are in the area!
