The Editions | Artists’ Book Fair is back! Postponed as a result of the recent storm, E|AB is scheduled to open
23 January 2013 and run 24 to 27 January at The Altman Building conveniently located at 135 West 18th Street, NYC between Sixth and Seventh Avenue. We are grateful to our friends and colleagues at The Art Fair Company who have made it possible to bring the Fair back in such style for our FIFTEENTH Anniversary! We would also like to acknowledge the encouraging words sent from all quarters in support of the Fair and our return. E |AB has come a long way from its origin as a collective of a dozen fine art and book publishers determined to build the best environment for discovering new editions and offering new ways of thinking about this most democratic of art forms. You are the reason we are growing and going strong, 15 years later.
This January visitors can count on exciting new offerings from our esteemed international exhibitors, as well as
a full schedule of innovative events and opportunities. Special events include Kayrock’s update on the Surrealist Exquisite Corpse, Invisible Corps, featuring artists Matthew Brannon, Ernesto Caivano, Chie Fueki, Kanishka Raja, Fred Tomaselli and Wendy White working independently throughout the day towards a final collaboration, printed and sold on site. Not to be outdone, Print Center has orchestrated the installation of a spectacular performative creation from Dennis McNett, Viking Ship. McNett, known for his elaborate constructions papered with relief prints, will be leading a workshop in Viking Shields. Visitors will have yet another chance to get their hands dirty when bookmaker extraordinaire Esther Smith hosts “Make Your Own Artists’ Books”. Punk Cult Club (Holland) comes to New York care of artKitchen and Luiscius Books in the form of lectures, screenings and a hair salon, read Mohawk. Finally, Long Life China will create long life china before your very eyes. All of this and more, check our website at www.eabfair.com for updates.
In honor of our 15th Anniversary, we have the great pleasure of announcing that DANA SCHUTZ has created the special edition print to benefit the Fair. The presciently named “Backstroke”, has been produced as a three-color woodblock print in a limited edition of 25. Dana has been working in innovative ways in printmaking since her graduation from Columbia in 2002 and continues to push our understanding and appreciation for the medium. Please support E|AB by adding this wonderful piece by Dana Schutz to your collection.
