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**

Lunch Bytes: No Internet, No Art launch @ Art Metropole, Sep 9

8 September 2015

Lunch Bytes is launching its first publication, titled No Internet, No Art, at Toronto’s Art Metropole with a conversation between Lunch Bytes curator and founder Melanie Bühler and Director of Creative Development Version House in Berlin, Alex Turgeon, on September 9.

The Toronto launch comes on the heels of the Washington launch on September 2 and the NYC launch on September 3, and will be followed by another one at San Serriffe in Amsterdam on October 1. Edited and introduced by Bühler, published by Onomatopee, and designed by Hannes Gloor, the anthology comes out of the series of public events entitled Lunch Bytes – Thinking about Art and Digital Culture, held in Washington, D.C.

Amongst more than 40 contributing artists, the anthology includes the familiar names of Paul Kneale, Kari Altmann, Karen Archey, Aram Bartholl, Harry Burke, Adam CrucesJaakko Pallasvuo, Jon Rafman, Jenna Sutela and Elvia Wilk—all working to explore what the prevalence of the internet means for contemporary art.
