Free and open to the public, the NY Art Book Fair is the world’s premier event for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines presented by more than 260 international presses, booksellers, antiquarians, artists, and independent publishers from twenty-four countries.
Lucy Lippard and Paul Chan are the keynote speakers for this year’s Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference—a dynamic, two-day symposium on emerging practices and debates within art-book culture. The Classroom—a curated series of artist-led workshops, readings, and discussions—will engage visitors in lively conversation all weekend long. The NY Art Book Fair will also include special project rooms, screenings, book signings, and performances throughout the weekend.
A preview of the Fair will be held on the evening of Thursday, September 27, from 6 to 9 pm, featuring two free musical performances by Sun Foot, and Malcolm Mooney (original vocalist with Can). Sun Foot will release a picture-disc record featuring artwork by Stefan Marx to benefit Printed Matter.
