The New York Art Book Fair hosted by Printed Matter will be taking place on the weekend of October 2-4 at PS1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City, Queens. This is by far my favorite art event of the year! The entire weekend of events is free, with the exception of the Preview and Benefit Party on Thursday October 1st, and the Contemporary Artists’ Book Conference which coincides with The Book Fair. For more specifics take a look at the NY Art Book Fair website.
My personal highlights include the following exhibitors: 2nd Cannons Publications, ANARTIST, Art Metropole, Bidoun Magazine, Boekie Woekie, Dispatch, GAGARIN, J&L Books, Kayrock, and Primary Information, as well as the “Friendly Fire” section which includes Golden Age, Nieves Books, Ooga Booga, and Paper Tiger Television.
Fun and exciting events will be taking place in The Classroom, which is curated by The MoMA Library Bibliographer David Senior. More details about these events and reporting during the weekend of The Book Fair coming soon!
