Save the Date: Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference in NYC

Contemporary Artists’ Books ConferenceSeptember 30 – October 1, 2011
in conjunction with the Printed Matter New York Art Book Fair
MoMA PS1, Long Island City, New York

This dynamic, two-day program focuses on emerging practices and debates within art-book culture. This year’s sessions feature a keynote by artist Tauba Auerbach, and sessions on an array of topics, including: artists’ books from Latin America, non-commercial distribution practices, contemporary criticism, and the pedagogical use of artists’ books in the juvenile justice system.

Thanks to generous funding by David Teiger and Phillip Aarons, the conference is free to the public for the first time.  

[Editor’s note: I’ve attended this conference/fair twice and it’s a wonderful event–engaging panels, amazing opportunity to interact with artists and booksellers, plus a lovely social atmosphere.  I highly recommend it, even more so now that it’s free.  RKJD]
