Printed Matter, Inc. presents the eighth annual NY Art Book Fair, September 20–22, at MoMA PS1, with a public opening on the evening of Thursday, September 19, from 6 to 9pm.
Free and open to the public, the NY Art Book Fair is the world’s leading event for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines showcased by more than 280 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, and independent publishers from more than twenty countries. Last year’s NY Art Book Fair saw its largest attendance to date with more than 25,000 artists, book buyers, collectors, dealers, curators, independent publishers, and other enthusiasts attending over the course of the event.
The NY Art Book Fair 2013 is shaping up to be another incredibly exciting installment of the fair, with a dynamic program of special projects, screenings, book signings and performances taking place throughout the weekend. The Classroom—a curated series of artist-led workshops, readings, and discussions—and the annual Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference—a two-day symposium on emerging practices and dialog within art-book culture—run throughout the fair and are free to the public.
Fair preview Join us Thursday, September 19, 6 to 9pm, for an opening night preview to get an early look at the 280 exhibitors. The event will feature a live set on the steps of MoMA PS1 by MASKS (New York City-based duo Alexis Georgopoulos and Max Ravitz) incorporating elements of underground dance music through analog synthesizers and drum machines. Terekke (Matt Gardner) will perform an opening set of subliminal, dub–influenced basement house.
