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. **
