“Dear Reader. Don’t read.”: Index Art Book Fair at Mexico City’s Jumex Museum, Apr 14 -16

11 April 2017

The 2017 edition of the Index Art Book Fair at Mexico City’s Jumex Museum opens April 14 to 16.

Now in its third year, Index and the Jumex Foundation are co-presenting the international artist book fair. The fair was founded by a group of designers, artists and curators including Jorge de la Garza, Maxime Dossin, Chantal Garduño, Tania Garduño, Frances Horn and Rafael Prieto.

Dedicated to creating a space for “dialogue around art, architecture and design publications,” the event brings together independent publishers from all over the world that take an experimental approach to editing.

In addition, there will also be accompanying exhibitions Ulises Carrión‘s Dear Reader. Don’t read, and an ephemeral event where language is the main medium in Tania Pérez Córdoba and Francesco Pedraglio‘s ‘Spoken Word Gallery.’

See the Index Art Book Fair website for the full programme and details.**

Index Art Book Fair, Feb 4 – 7

2 February 2016

Index Art Book Fair will take place in the Museo Jumex building of Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico running from February 4 to 7. 

The book fair brings together publishers from Mexico, South America and Europe. Over 70 participate over the long weekend, which coincides with the Material Art Fair 2016 also in Mexico City, for which aqnb has made some recommendations. Index works to draw attention to publications relating to contemporary art that lack big distribution and platform or space.

The Museo Jumex will host a large collection of printed matter and editorial projects, which, collaboratively –in relation to this fair –and otherwise look more closely at experimental ways to edit, making public and print. A programme of live events and panel discussions, such as ‘Acts of Publication’ and ‘Print as Matter’ will also take place over the course of the fair.

Publishers presenting their wares at Index Art Book Fair include White Fungus, Sternberg-Press, Semiotexte, Onomatopee, Mousse Magazine, Book Works, Banner Repeater, Afterall, Fuck Zinez and Laca (Los Angeles Contemporary Archive).

See the Index Art Book Fair webpage for details and the full programme**
