Free and open to the public, Printed Matter‘s NY Art Book Fair is the world’s premier event for artists’ books, catalogues, monographs, periodicals, and zines. This year, the fair features over 350 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, institutions, and independent publishers from 28 countries. Last year’s fair was attended by more than 35,000 people.
Hyperallergic is excited to be the media partner for NYABF’s tenth installment, and we’re equally excited to share that applications to exhibit are currently open! The fair returns to MoMa PS1 from September 18 to September 20.
This year’s NY Art Book Fair includes 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.
NYABF15 will also host an array of programming and special events: in its seventh year, The Classroom is a curated engagement of informal conversations, workshops, readings, and other artist-led interventions. The Contemporary Artists’ Book Conference (CABC), in its eighth year, will feature two full days on emerging practices and issues within art-book culture.
Deadline for applications is May 31, 2015. However, please note that they’ll be assigning spaces before then, so we recommend you submit your application as soon as possible.
