Free and open to the pub­lic, the LA Art Book Fair is a unique event for artists’ books, art cata­logs, mono­graphs, peri­od­ic­als, and zines presen­ted by over 250 inter­na­tion­al presses, book­sellers, anti­quar­i­ans, artists, and inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ers.

Fea­tured pro­jects include a Queer Zines Exhib­i­tion cur­ated by Philip Aarons and AA Bron­son, The Classroom series of talks and lec­tures cur­ated by Dav­id Seni­or, KCHUNG Radio with live cov­er­age of — and broad­cast from — the fair, and a num­ber of spe­cial pro­ject rooms. In addi­tion, MOCAtv and the LA Art Book Fair team up to bring you a series of cur­ated screen­ings, pan­els, and per­form­ances by some of our favor­ite artists and per­formers, and the CABC comes, for the first time, to the west coast for a one-day con­fer­ence.
