NY ART BOOK FAIR 2011
PS1 (22-25 Jackson Ave., Queens)
For the third consecutive year the NY Art Book Fair, organized by Printed Matter, is held at MoMA PS1. A preview will be held on the evening of Thursday, September 29th. Free and open to the public, and featuring more than 200 exhibitors from 20 countries, the NY Art Book Fair is the world’s premier event for artists’ books, contemporary art catalogs and monographs, art periodicals, and artist zines. Exhibitors include international presses, booksellers, antiquarian dealers, artists and independent publishers from more than twenty countries.
16,500 people attended The NY Art Book Fair 2010, the last edition of this favorite meeting place for book collectors, dealers, artists, curators, independent publishers, and other art enthusiasts.
The NY Art Book Fair 2011 will include special projects, screenings, book signings, and performances, throughout the weekend. The Classroom—a curated series of artist-led workshops, readings, and discussions—and the fifth annual Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference—a dynamic, two-day symposium on emerging practices and debates within art-book culture—will engage visitors in lively conversation all weekend long.
