This year’s NY Art Book Fair 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-classic Friendly Fire focuses on the intersections of art and activism, and with the support of the Norwegian Consulate General in New York, the NYABF and Printed Matter presents NORWAY FOCUS: KUNSTNERBØKER, a curated selection of 23 Norwegian booksellers, institutions, artists and independent publishers.
NYABF14 is also full of programming and special events: now in its sixth year, The Classroom is a curated engagement of informal conversations, workshops, readings, and other artist-led interventions. The Contemporary Artists’ Book Conference (CABC), now in its seventh year, features two full days on emerging practices and issues within art-book culture. The stage at the top of the stairs will have continuous musical performances programmed by Printed Matter, Showpaper, and Know-Wave Radio.
