In conjunction with the NY Art Book Fair, the annual CONTEMPORARY ARTIST BOOK CONFERENCE will be held at the same location:
MoMA’s P.S.1 in Queens, NY. I love this artists book fair (which is FREE!), and this conference (reasonably priced). Not to be missed!
From the event webpage:
“In conjunction with the NY Art Book Fair, Printed Matter announces a conference on contemporary artists’ books. The program will include speakers, panels, artists’ presentations, and receptions. The conference focuses on recent developments in artists’ books. Sessions this year focus on zines, typography, pedagogy, and criticism. These and other themes are intended to encourage dialog amongst scholars, collectors, artists, and librarians.
The Conference will be held on the first floor of MoMA PS1.
You can purchase a ticket for the full conference (with Emily Roysdon edition) here or for single sessions here.
Six panel sessions will be held, along with an hour-long “pecha kucha,” or lightning round, in which invited guests will present for five minutes each, discussing one or more artists’ books, zines, multiples, etc.
