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. This year, the fair features over 350 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, institutions and independent publishers from twenty-eight countries. This year’s fair was attended by more than 35,000 people.
This year’s NY Art Book Fair included 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. NYABF-classicFriendly Fire focused on the intersections of art and activism, and with the support of the Norwegian Consulate General in New York, the NYABF and Printed Matter presented NORWAY FOCUS: KUNSTNERBØKER, a curated selection of 23 Norwegian booksellers, institutions, artists and independent publishers.
NYABF14 was also host to an array of programming and special events: in its sixth year, The Classroom was a curated engagement of informal conversations, workshops, readings, and other artist-led interventions. The Contemporary Artists’ Book Conference (CABC), in its seventh year, featured two full days on emerging practices and issues within art-book culture. The stage at the top of the stairs had continuous musical performances programmed by Printed Matter, Showpaper, andKnow-Wave Radio.
