Conference — Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference

The Con­tem­por­ary Artists’ Books Con­fer­ence is a dynam­ic, two-day event focused on emer­ging prac­tices and debates with­in art-book cul­ture.

This year’s ses­sions address a wide array of sub­jects, includ­ing: exper­i­ment­al lib­rar­ies, the so-called zine renais­sance, fusion of art and design in typo­graphy, con­tem­por­ary cri­ti­cism, and new ped­ago­gic­al approaches to the ever-expand­ing field of artists’ books.

The first day of the con­fer­ence ends with our key­note, a con­ver­sa­tion on books between Richard Hell, Josh Smith and Chris­toph­er Wool, fol­lowed by a lively pecha kucha, a rap­id-fire event in which invited speak­ers have just five minutes to com­ment on an art­work.

The Con­fer­ence is part of the NY Art Book Fair presen­ted by Prin­ted Mat­ter.
