The San Francisco Art Book Fair (SFABF) has become one of the Bay Area’s most highly-anticipated annual art events since its launch in 2016. Now returning to Minnesota Street Project (MSP) for its fourth year, the SFABF runs from Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21, and is free and open to the public.
Co-organized by Colpa, Minnesota Street Project, and Park Life, SFABF showcases and connects diverse talent from the Bay Area art publishing community and beyond. The fair spotlights an eclectic range of artists’ books, catalogues, monographs, periodicals, zines, ephemera, and multiples, presented by over 100 publishers, antiquarian dealers, artists, and galleries. This year, the list includes more than thirty new exhibitors, as well as thirteen international exhibitors. Unlike other art book fairs, the SFABF also includes a dozen independently owned and operated galleries permanently housed at Minnesota Street Project.
The fair will also feature a variety of talks, discussions, book launches, special projects, and signings throughout the weekend. This year’s lineup includes a panel discussion celebrating the launch of Steven Leiber’s Catalogs published by Rite Editions and Inventory Press; an exhibition by Gagosian of an artist book by Richard Prince alongside Jack Kerouac items from the Ryder Road Foundation; and a screening of the 13-hour film Over and Over, Again and Again by Allen Ruppersberg. Additional programming coordinated by the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts (MFA) will be held at 1150 25th Street, including events with Ala Ebtekar, Bonanza, and Stephanie Syjuco.
San Francisco Art Book Fair runs July 19–21, 2019 at Minnesota Street Project (MSP), ( 1275 Minnesota St, SF 94107). Free admission.
