Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair 2015

, 13 January 2015

Printed Matter‘s third annual LA Art Book Fair is running at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in downtown LA from January 29 to February 1.

As the sunny twin to the bi-annual NY Art Book Fair, the 2015 LA Art Book Fair is opening the weekend with a three-hour preview featuring special musical numbers from No Age and Prince Rama. And running throughout the weekend is (XE)ROX & PAPER + SCISSORS, a “super-sized subsection” of the greater fair, which is bringing in more than 125 artists, zinesters, and small presses for a survey of independent publishing.

Other programmes include: The Classroom, a curated series of workshops, conversations, and readings, as well as the seventh annual Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference (CABC); “1 Image 1 Minute” which has 50 artists, writers and curators present a single image of their choosing for one minute; and even an exhibition of the great Dorothy Iannone’s artists’ books.

There’s a whole lot more and the LA Art Book Fair FB page has the details. **
