November 5/6/7: NY Art Book Fair at PS1

One of my favorite fairs of the year, without question!  From the website:

Printed Matter presents the fifth annual NY Art Book Fair, November 5–7 at MoMA PS1, Long Island City, Queens.

Free and open to the public, the Fair hosts over 200 international presses, booksellers, antiquarian dealers, artists and publishers from twenty countries, offering the best in contemporary art book publishing.

Philip Aarons, Chairman of the Board of Printed Matter, said: “The NY Art Book Fair is the premiere venue to find what’s new in art publishing. While it has spawned the next generation of independent art book fairs world-wide, it remains the biggest, the best, and by far the most fun.”

The NY Art Book Fair includes special project rooms, screenings, book signings, and performances, throughout the weekend.

Other events include the third annual Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference, and The Classroom, a curated series of informal conversations between artists, together with readings, workshops and other artist-led events.”

November 8th in Washington, DC: MVS and Darius Himes on “To Be Published, or Self Publish?””

In conjunction with FotoWeek DC:
Darius Himes & Mary Virginia Swanson will speak at 12:00 noon at the Frances and Armand Hammer Auditorium of the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design, 500 17th Street NW (FREE).  Click here for event description and details.
“The print-on-demand revolution has opened up new publishing possibilities for photographers; it has never been easier or more affordable to produce and market a book of your photographs. The traditional publishing path has the advantage of a highly specialized team that brings experience with design, production, marketing and distribution systems to the table. In a self-publishing scenario you can create exactly the book you envision, but without the input and expertise of seasoned professionals at a publishing house. Which scenario is best for you?In this presentation, coauthors Darius Himes and Mary Virginia Swanson will discuss both avenues to publishing and help participants determine the pros/cons of each. Swanson will share resources from their forthcoming title, Publish Your Photography Book (Princeton Architectural Press, Winter 2011), and time will be allocated for a question/answer period at the end of the presentation.”

November 3 in NYC: Discussion with Fine Art Bloggers sponsored by ASMP NY

from ASMP NY‘s Susan May Tell on a great event on Wednesday night in NYC:
“ASMPNY’s Fine Art Conversations Series – Panel with Influential Fine Art Photography Bloggers!

Do you want your photography blogged about by influential Fine Art Photography Bloggers? Then this event is for you!

When:    November 3, 2010
Where:   Soho Photo 15 White Street
Time:    Doors and registration open 6:30pm

Panel Discussion 7-9:00pm

Fine art photography blogs have changed the landscape for sharing and reviewing work. Blogs are more personal and idiosyncratic while attracting a wide audience, and doing so more quickly and inexpensively.  Photographers no longer have to wait for a review of a bricks-and-mortar exhibition by a very small group of print publications. The objective of this night is to inform photographers about fine art photography blogging:
-how the blog came into being
-how the blog differs from photography covered in a print edition (if there is one)
-what bloggers like (or don’t) about blogging
-advantages and disadvantages about blogging
-who is the audience for the blog
-how work is chosen for the blog
-how bloggers like (or don’t) to be contacted by photographers, agents or galleries
-how blogging has impacted fine art photography (or not)
Panelists: read their full bios here
- ELIZABETH AVEDON – has received recognition for her curatorial work, exhibition design and publishing projects, and worked with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Random House, and was the Gallery Director for Photo-Eye Gallery
- A. D. COLEMAN – the first photography critic for the NY Times, first Art Critic’s Fellowship from the NEA, and named one of The Top 100 People in Photography by American Photo Magazine
- STELLA KRAMER – two-time Pulitzer Prize winner while at the NY Times and also the recipient of the Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography
- RUBEN NATAL-SAN MIGUEL – art collector, curator and photographer involved with many art, not-for-profit, organizations like ACRIA, Printed Matter, Aperture Foundation, AIDS Chicago, and the Humble Arts Foundation

November 4th in San Diego: An evening with curator Carol McCusker

Join CAROL McCUSKER for a special talk on contemporary photography:

In conjunction with The Art of Photography show:
When: Thursday, November 4th 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Where: Lyceum Theatre Gallery, in Horton Plaza, Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego

Cost: Free

Carol McCusker’s talk, Know Thyself, will focus on fine art photography, specifically questions around how we develop a vision, what influences come to bear on our creative output, and the roll of galleries, museums, photo competitions and portfolio reviews. Using music as a corollary, she’ll explore how photography falls into as many different categories (folk, rock, jazz, country, world beat, classical, etc.), but how, within each category, there are equivalents of ‘Musak’ at one end of the spectrum and inspired innovation at the other. What she seeks from all creative people, including herself, is the ability to ‘know thyself,’ and to honestly know where you fit in this spectrum.

McCusker is also concerned with the use of language when photographers talk about their work, which can often confuse not just their audience but themselves and what they hope to achieve. To make her point, she’ll use examples from the current Art in Photography Show, its attending lecture series, the history of photography and a competition she recently juried.

Carol McCusker is an independent curator, writer and educator. For eight years, she was Curator of Photography at the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego, where she curated over thirty-five exhibitions. She is an adjunct professor at the University of San Diego and UCSD Extension. Recently, she was Juror for the prestigious 2010 ICP/NY Infinity Award, and the 2010 Julia Margaret Cameron Award in York, UK. McCusker has review portfolios nationally and internationally, including the Lishui Photo Festival, Lishui, China; Camera Lucida, Portland, OR; Houston Photo Fest, TX; Review Santa Fe, NM; Atlanta Celebrates Photography, GA; and Review L.A. She writes for The Photo Review, B&W, Color, Communication Arts, and numerous artists’ catalogues.

Directions to the Lyceum Theatre Gallery: www.artofphotographyshow.com/lyceum.html

Parking: Park at the Horton Plaza parking structure and receive a 3 hour validation.
