Printed Matter operates the world’s two premier events for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, zines, and antiquarian publications.

NY Art Book Fair

Held each fall, the NY Art Book Fair is the world’s largest book fair for artists’ books and related publications, featuring over 370 exhibitors from 30 countries, and attended by over 39,000 visitors annually. Free and open to the public, the fair presents an active program of exhibitions, talks, workshops, book launches and performances, as well as many off-schedule events hosted by individual publishers. Since 2009, the fair has been held at MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, Queens.

Contemporary Artists Book Conference

The two-day Contemporary Artists Book Conference is held in conjunction with the PM Book Fairs. The Conference focuses on emerging practices and provides a forum for critical discussions around art-book culture with distinguished artists and panelists.

Offsite

Printed Matter also maintains an international presence at offsite art fairs across the world in order to reach a broader audience. These include Art Basel, Miami Basel, LA Contemporary, NADA, Frieze NY, Independent, and many others. At each fair we aim to bring a strong selection of contemporary artists’ publications and other material not typically present at art fairs. We also regularly participate in alternative book fairs and zine fairs throughout the country. We’re very grateful to the fairs listed above for making our attendance possible.
