NY ART BOOK FAIR OVERVIEW
This year’s NY Art Book Fair includes an ever-growing variety of exhibitors – from the zinesters in (XE)ROX & PAPER + SCISSORS and the Small Press Dome representing publishing at its most innovative and affordable, to rare and antiquarian dealers offering out-of-print books and ephemera from art and artist book history, plus the NYABF-classic Friendly Fire, focused on the intersections of art and activism.
NYABF15 will also host an array of programming and special events: in its seventh year, The Classroom is a curated engagement of informal conversations, workshops, readings, and other artist-led interventions. The Contemporary Artists’ Book Conference (CABC), in its eighth year, will feature two full days on emerging practices and issues within art-book culture.

Printed Matter will also present an exhibition of work by Providence-based trio Paper Rad, curated by Paul Bright. The show in the PS1 Dome features the zines and printed ephemera created by the group between 1997 and 2009, most of which has not been seen publicly.
