Printed Matter’s New York Art Book Fair
September 20-22, 2013
Free Opening Preview: Thursday, September 19th, 6:00-9:00 pm

Printed Matter presents the eighth annual NY Art Book Fair, from September 20 to 22, at MoMA PS1, Long Island City, Queens.

Free and open to the public, the NY Art Book Fair is the world’s premier event for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines. Last year, the fair featured 283 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, and independent publishers from twenty-six countries, and was attended by more than 25,000 people.

Join us for our opening night preview featuring a live set from MASKS on the steps of MoMA PS1. Comprised of New York City-based duo Alexis Georgopoulos and Max Ravitz, the group incorporates elements of underground dance music through analog synthesizers and drum machines. Supporting MASKS, one of the most enigmatic artists on the L.I.E.S. roster, Terekke (aka Matt Gardner) makes subliminal, dub–influenced, tape hiss–fueled basement house.”

If you’re in the area, this is a must see event!

August 3rd & 4th, NYC: 4th Annual Zine and Self-Published Photo Book Fair

The Camera Club of New York
Fourth Annual Zine and Self-Published Photo Book Fair: The Americas
Saturday & Sunday, August 3-4, 2013
, 12:00-6:00 pm

“This year’s theme, The Americas, presents photo books and zines from North, South and Central America. The curators – Jade Berreau, Lindsey Castillo, Victoria Gondra and Erik van der Weijde – each have backgrounds in publishing, with close ties to artists from all over the Americas. They have curated a wide range of work that reflects the region’s great diversity in art and culture. As in past years, all proceeds from the sale of zines and photo books will go directly to the artists or small publishers.

On Saturday, August 3 at 3pm in the CCNY Studio, Tony White will discuss the impact of zines and artists’ publishing in the early 21st century in the United States. White will briefly draw attention to the impact by late 20th century democratic multiple-artists’ books in the USA, and to the paradigm shift in production/distribution opportunities created by the internet and print on demand. Connections to similar publishing practices in the Americas will be highlighted as well, drawing on the diversity and interconnectedness the internet has created for artists’ publishing today, whether in North, Central or South America.”

Opening Reception for Life’s a Beach  by Martin Parr
Wednesday, May 15, 2013, 7:00-9:00 pm

“Join Aperture and Martin Parr for the opening reception for Life’s a Beach, featuring the best selections from Parr’s beach photography, presented in conjunction with the May release of the beach-bag-size edition of Life’s a Beach. Parr has been photographing beaches for thirty years, documenting all aspects of them, including close-ups of sunbathers, rambunctious swimmers caught mid-plunge, and the eternal sandy picnic underway. This selection brings to the fore Parr’s engagement with a cherished subject matter—that rare public space in which general absurdities and local quirks seamlessly fuse together.”

April 4th, Milwaukee: Opening Reception for the “Veterans Book Project”

Milwaukee Art Museum
Opening Reception Veterans Book Project: Objects for Deployment
Thursday, April 4, 2013, 5:00-8:00 pm
Panel discussion at 6:15 pm, Lubar Auditorium

“The Veterans Book Project evolved out of a book that Monica Haller authored with Riley Sharbonno, a veteran and nurse at Abu Ghraib prison. Since 2006, the project has facilitated thirteen bookmaking workshops around the country, including at the Museum in December 2012. In these workshops, combat and non-combat veterans, their families, and others affected by the current American wars are invited to edit and design their archives and stories into softbound, print-on-demand books. Five books were created by local authors in the workshop at the Museum—a soldier’s mother, a Vietnam War veteran, two veterans of the Iraq war, and a local scholar whose research brings her into close contact with veterans.

The fifty books in the exhibition serve to redeploy the volatile images of war for a broad audience, while helping the authors rearticulate their memories and fashion narratives so as to make the experiences more manageable. Each book not only stands on its own but also works in concert with the larger collection, which Haller sees as an archive, a container of memory traces and image fragments from wars that are not talked about nearly enough.

The exhibition and the Panel Discussion on April 4 offer viewers the opportunity to engage with veterans’ experiences through reading, writing responses, informal conversation, and facilitated discussion.

The Veterans Book Project continues the Museum’s joint mission with the War Memorial Corporation “to honor the dead by serving the living.”

The exhibition will be on view April 4 – September 2, 2013.
