THE NY ART BOOK FAIR 2019
This year's fair welcomes 369 exhibitors — including 135 international exhibitors from more than 30 countries — featuring small press publishers, artists, collectives, institutions, galleries, antiquarian booksellers, and distributors. Over the course of the weekend, the NYABF will serve as a meeting place for upwards of 35,000 artists, publishers and book enthusiasts, as well as a space for dialogue and exchange through a schedule of artist led programs, including discussions, performances, interactive workshops, book signings, and special projects.
The Classroom is a series of informal lectures, readings, screenings and other activities by artists, writers, designers, and publishers. NYABF 2019 participants include: Iñaki Bonillas, Leidy Churchman, Akwaeke Emezi, Tiona Nekkia McClodden, Michael Stipe, and Carmen Winant, among many others. Organized by David Senior, Head of the Library and Archives, SFMOMA. Full Classroom schedule here.
Exhibitor Projects are special publication-focused presentations by select fair exhibitors. This year’s projects include: a multi-generational survey of Graphzine, an underground artist publishing scene that emerged in France in the 1970s; expanded presentations of newly launched publications by Ryan Gander, Warren Neidich, and Taryn Simon; and a workshop series presented with Endless Editions.
The Shannon Michael Cane Award is granted to four first-time NYABF exhibitors in the early stages of their careers. The 2019 winners are Candystore, Doran Walot, The Nice Magazine, and PHILE Magazine. The Shannon Michael Cane Award is made possible through the SMC Fund.
Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference (CABC), features a full day of talks and conversations, taking place on Saturday, September 21 at Artbook Bookstore Event Space. Organized by art librarians and professionals in the field, sessions will cover a range of lively topics from artists, scholars, and other leading figures, with a keynote address by the artist Adam Pendleton.
Friendly Fire provides an important platform that brings together social justice organizations and politically-minded artist publishers 8-Ball Community, Gato Negro Ediciones, Hardworking Goodlooking, Visual AIDS, and World War 3 Illustrated, among others. Curated by Printed Matter’s Executive Director Max Schumann.
