LA Art Book Fair – Update

Filed under: Photo Book NEWS — Tags: , — Doug Stockdale @ 2:27 pm

For 2018 it was just announced that there will not be a LA Art Book Fair, which is some sad at the end of the year news for the left coast. This has a been a popular event in LA, extremely well attended and a fair that is notable for its diverse publications for sale. I had been looking forward to this event and thus I am very disappointed, but I understand why. Thus now looking forward to the 2019 event!

Here is the press release from Printed Matter, the fairs sponsor;

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I regret to announce that Printed Matter’s 2018 LA Art Book Fair has been cancelled due to the unavailability of The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, the Fair’s venue of the last five years, and the tragic and unexpected passing of our friend and Fair Curator Shannon Michael Cane.

Over the years, the LA Art Book Fair has grown to become one of the art publishing world’s largest gatherings—a community-driven celebration of innovation and creativity, as well as a rich educational forum for engaging with all facets of art book publishing. We are greatly disappointed that we are unable to mount the Fair in 2018.

The LA Art Book Fair will definitely return in 2019 with renewed energy. Thank you for your understanding and support, and we hope to see you at our NY Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1 in the fall.
