THE NY ART BOOK FAIR
September 30–October 2, 2011
The Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference is a dynamic, two-day event focused on emerging practices and debates within art-book culture.
The Conference is organized by the CABC Committee, a national group of art library professionals (including your very own ICP librarians). The conference sessions involve ICP faculty, museum educators and alumni: Victor Sira, Saul Robbins, Curtis Hamilton, Garret Miller, Pierre Le Hors, etc. Nayland Blake and the ICP/Bard MFA group have a booth at the fair.
In conjunction with the Conference:
Bringing together language-based artworks, poetry, and image-text dialogues, Adventures will pay homage to assembling practices developed by mid-twentieth century artists’ periodicals including Semina, which is the focus of a related exhibition at the NY Art Book Fair.
