Printed Matter presents the thirteenth annual NY Art Book Fair (NYABF), which will take place September 21st – 23rd at MoMA PS1, and is free and open to the public.

Since its founding, the NYABF has grown into a leading international event for the arts publishing community, providing an important platform for artists and publishers to connect with audiences and circulate their work in a dynamic environment. The NYABF 2018 welcomes Sonel Breslav as Printed Matter’s new Director of Fairs & Editions.

Over three days, the NYABF 2018 will welcome hundreds of exhibitors from around the world, including a broad range of artists and collectives, small presses, institutions, galleries, antiquarian booksellers, and distributors. With a commitment to diversity and representation, the event will serve as an open meeting place for an extended community of publishers and book enthusiasts, as well as a site for dialog and exchange around all facets of arts publishing.

The Fair weekend will once again feature a full calendar of free educational programming. The Classroom, an ongoing series of artist-led events, serves as an informal space for talks, panel discussions, readings, performances and other programs. The Contemporary Artists’ Book Conference (CABC), organized by a national group of art library professionals, will present two full days of conversation in the PS1 Theater, inviting artists, scholars and leading figures to address a range of issues across publishing and art-book culture.

The Shannon Michael Cane Award, in memory of Curator of Fairs Shannon Michael Cane, will be given to four emerging artists/publishers exhibiting for the first time. Recipients will receive a complimentary Fair table and a modest stipend to help cover related expenses. See details within Application.
