One of my favorite fairs of the year, without question! From the website:
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.”
NOT TO BE MISSED!!
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
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.
