Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair is the leading international gathering for the distribution of artists’ books, celebrating the full breadth of the art publishing community. Free and open to the public, the event draws more than 35,000 individuals including book lovers, collectors, artists, and art world professionals each year. In 2018, the NYABF will host 365 exhibitors from around the world featuring a wide variety of works – from zines and artists’ books to antiquarian books and contemporary art editions. The NYABF offers countless opportunities to attend free programs including artist-led discussions, performances, interactive workshops, and curated exhibitions.

The Fair weekend will once again feature a full calendar of free educational programming. The Classroom, an ongoing series of 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 at Book Culture (26-09 Jackson Ave), inviting artists, scholars and leading figures to address a range of issues across publishing and art-book culture.
