ExhibitionsThe NY Art Book Fair is pleased to host four exhibitions at this year's event, including our first ever satellite exhibition, a 5 minute walk from PS1. The varied exhibitions survey works of from individuals significant to the artists' book medium as well as extensive group presentations.
(Dome - Gallery B)
An exhibition of book works by Bruno Munari - presented by Edizioni Corraini - will be housed in the courtyard dome. The exhibition includes a collection of rare and out-of-print artist and design books by the late Italian artist, offering a comprehensive survey of his influential career. Selections from the private collection of Giorgio Maffei will be on view as well.
Think Like Clouds
Badlands will premiere a small exhibition of drawings, diagrams and notes made by Hans Ulrich Obrist, accompanied by a limited edition zine which previews the works reproduced in his forthcoming book published by Badlands titled Think Like Clouds (228 pages, softcover).
Andrew Roth, in association with PPP Editions, will present Paperwork – an exhibition of artists’ scrapbooks featuring works by Brigid Berlin, Jimmy de Sana, John Evans, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Al Hansen, Richard Hawkins, Geoffrey Hendricks, Ray Johnson, Leigh Ledare, Gerhard Richter and Jean-Michel Wicker. In addition, PPP Editions will be hosting CAGE - a space for dialogue, mutual support and production located on the Lower East Side of New York which involves changing membership in ongoing response to material conditions.
The Ray Johnson Room
A presentation of Ray Johnson’s Book of Death (all 13 pages!) alongside selections from the semi-mythical bitch-zine Sinking Bear where he was a driving force. Brought to you by Division Leap and Boo-Hooray.

Art Magazines Live
Guest-editor Dushko Petrovich and various contributors will enact a live-format preview of their forthcoming issue of Art Papers, which is devoted entirely to the topic of art magazines. Essays, columns, reviews, and artists projects will be presented in the space, unfolding loosely and conversationally along the lines of the print publication itself. Social, historical, visual, financial, and other aspects of the art magazine will be addressed, with ample opportunity for audience participation—and very few ads. Participants include (in no particular order) Matt Boruso, Gwen Allen, Brian Droitcour, Susan Bee, David Gutiérrez Castañeda, Leora Maltz-Leca, Julian Myers, Ben Davis, William Powhida, Sarah Greenberger Rafferty, Jeremy Sigler, Project Projects, Sarah Hromack, Karen Archey.
The City as a Book with Chris Burnett and Elisabeth Tonnard
In conjunction with the launch of Tonnard's In this Dark Wood by J&L Books, Chris Burnett and Elisabeth Tonnard present a glimpse into the unique artifact that is the source of the book's images: the Selle collection of more than one million street vendor photographs taken in San Francisco from the 1940s through the 1970s. A celebration of ephemeral images in a mix of slideshow, reading, and lecture. Presented by J&L Books.
Freaks on the Phone Won't Leave Me Alone, with Nicholas Gottlund and Peter Sutherland
Following the questionable success of I Have Nothing To Do and I'm Doing It, the Gottlund book house presents Freaks on the Phone Won't Leave Me Alone: a collaboration between Peter Sutherland and Nicholas Gottlund based on a never-published list, Freaks & Heads. Sutherland will project a series of photographs from his personal archive of the most fanatic underground insiders and outsiders in response to Gottlund's recitation of "freaks" and "heads." An accompanying zine produced for the occasion will be distributed for free at the event. Presented by Gottlund Verlag.
An Encyclophilic Guide to The Plummet Machine v.II, by Matthew C. Lange
An Encyclophilic Guide to The Plummet Machine v.II will be a live demonstration of techniques for dismantling knowledge constructs. In this presentation, Matthew C. Lange will physically and conceptually reconfigure encyclopedia sets, filmstrip projectors, flip charts, and other media devices. By doing so, he will reveal an alternative epistemological system that merges Cold War politics, Kafka-esque transformations, the Wild West, and infomercials in an abstract entity referred to as The Plummet Machine.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21
Art Book Roadshow: Blonde Art Books 2013 Summer Tour
For six weeks this summer, Blonde Art Books traveled to eight cities throughout the Northeast and Midwest, collaborating with local artists, writers, and publishers on a series of one-day events. Blonde Art Books-founder Sonel Breslav will be joined by Maia Asshaq of DittoDitto (Detroit), Lauren van Haaften-Schick (New York), Sarah Williams of The Art Book Review (Los Angeles), and Daniel McCloskey of The Cyberpunk Apocalypse (Pittsburgh) to discuss the intentions and outcomes of the tour, as well as their individual contributions to independent publishing. The presentation will include a performance by Alan Resnick (Baltimore) from his self-published book $8.95. Presented by Blonde Art Books.
The Exhibitionist, Issue 8 Launch
To mark the launch of La Critique, Issue 8 of The Exhibitionist, the journal's editor Jens Hoffmann sits down with Steven Henry Madoff, Chair of the MA Curatorial Practice program at SVA, to discuss the evolving direction of the first journal on exhibition-making in light of the rapid growth of curatorial publications today, and the ongoing professionalization of the field. Presented by The Exhibitionist.
Fires of Siberia: a reading by Tréy Sager
Poet and author Tréy Sager will be reading from Fires of Siberia (Badlands Unlimited, 2013), an erotic romance novel hailed as a combination of "Fifty Shades of Grey and Michele Bachmann" by The Atlantic, Washington Post, and National Review. Badlands publisher Paul Chan will join Sager afterwards for a Q&A on poetry, politics, and sex in right-wing conservatism. Presented by Badlands Unlimited.
Storytelling with vernacular photographs, by Erik Kessels
Over a period of 10 years Erik Kessels has made many books out of the passion for vernacular and amateur photography. He will highlight his latest publications and give an insight in collecting and editing the photographs often found online or on flea markets from all over the world. Another subject of the lecture is the role of images in the time we live in and how you can look at these in other ways than simply consuming them. Presented by KesselsKramer.
Suppose and a Pair of Jeans, with Anna Sew Hoy.
On the occasion of the publication of Anna Sew Hoy: Suppose and a Pair of Jeans, Los Angeles-based artist Anna Sew Hoy joins Ooga Booga's Wendy Yao and Trinie Dalton for a conversation about collaboration, collectivity, and performance, moderated by designer and co-editor, Mark Owens of Oslo Editions. Presented by Oslo Editions.
Anyone Telling Anything is Telling That Thing, by Eve Fowler
Katerina Llanes organizes an hour of readings with Corrine Fitzpatrick, Litia Perta, Corina Copp and Elizabeth Orr in response to Eve Fowler's new book, Anyone Telling Anything is Telling That Thing. The book is both a portrait of Los Angeles and a document of Fowler's public art/poster project that uses the text of Gertrude Stein's Tender Buttons. The publication is produced as the annual edition of the Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference.
G.P.O. versus G.P-O: a chronicle of mail art on trial, with Genesis P-Orridge
The most recent Primary Information release is a publication of Genesis P-Orridge’s collection of materials surrounding Great Britain’s General Post Office’s case against him for disseminating pornographic material through the mail in 1975. When the Post Office made their case against P-Orridge, it became an opportunity to turn the case into another performance. G.P.O. versus G.P-O collects ephemera, legal documents, correspondence, and articles about the case and mail art. In celebration of the publication, Lia Gangitano joins Genesis P-Orridge in conversation, with - perhaps - a screening of a short COUM Transmissions video from 1974. Presented by Primary Information.
Drinkollage Zine Launch and Collage Making Party
Drinkollage is a semi-regular gathering of artists and friends who drink beer and collage together. We also produce a zine of selected collages made during these parties. Join us for drinks and a collaborative collage making party in celebration of the release of volume 2, which includes a special limited edition poster by Jesse Hulcher. The collages made during this session will be published in a special NY Art Book Fair 2013 volume of the zine. Cheers!
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 22
Post-Honesty Branding Strategies: Full Disclosure, with Rebecca LaMarre, Brad Troemel and Lauren Christiansen
Full Disclosure was an experiment in publishing using the Internet, social networks and international distribution streams, culminating this spring in an exhibition at Arcadia Missa Gallery in London, UK. The project began as a collaborative video with Finnish artist Jaakko Pallasvuo in 2012 and has been iterated in a number of different forms since then, the most concrete being an artist's book distributed by Antenne. The book has recently been shrink-wrapped by Brad Troemel and made available for sale on Etsy. Troemel, who also contributes to the tumblr The Jogging, Lauren Christiansen and LaMarre will present their various book-related experiments and discuss what's at stake as both human and printed materials are mobilized by different publishing strategies spanning the offline to the online.
The Writings of Barry Schwabsky
In celebration of Barry Schwabsky's newly released collection of essays and books reviews, Words for Art: Criticism, Theory, History, Practice (Sternberg Press, 2013), the author will be in conversation with art historian and critic Howard Singerman. Presented by Sternberg Press.
Movement Materials and What We Can Do, by Andrew Norman Wilson.
In Movement Materials and What We Can Do, Andrew Norman Wilson employs corporate, academic and artistic lecture techniques to the intertwining concerns of his projects Workers Leaving the Googleplex and ScanOps. Medium-specific considerations and various histories of film/video, photography and publishing media are addressed, emphasizing the materiality of both analog and digital media and the labor processes they entail. Andrew Norman Wilson is also the co-curator of Image Employment, surrounding NYABF 2013 at MoMA PS1. Presented by Art Metropole.
A video lecture by Richard Hollis, introduced by Stuart Bailey
In conjunction with a survey exhibition of work by British graphic designer Richard Hollis at Artists Space: Books & Talks, this event presents a video lecture by Hollis filmed in August 2013 as an adjunct to the exhibition. Since the early 1960s Hollis has been at the forefront of discourse around visual communication and graphic design, through his work as a graphic designer, writer and teacher. His lecture draws on a significant archive of visual material to present a personal account of his work, and its location in relation to shifting social, political and aesthetic contexts. Designer and publisher Stuart Bailey, who worked with Hollis in the late 1990s, will introduce the screening. Presented by Artists Space.
David Reinfurt on Bruno Munari, circa 1962
Thus we can speak of 'programmed' art, and admire the kinetic sculptures that a man of a coming future will install in his house, in place of the old prints of the modern masterpieces reproduced. And if someone should observe that this is not painting, nor even sculpture, it should be of no concern. One could then start a contest to find a new name, but let us not be frightened by a question of names.
Billie Holiday once made a simple, yet prescient observation: when she was coming off drugs, she didn’t like to watch television. Although this could be seen as a passing comment, such an association ties imagery to narcotics as twinned devices that can both stimulate and anesthetize. Building off such a conflicted prescription, WdWReview (wdwreview.org) continually tasks various writers to dig deep into the means and ways of mediating vision. Join Chief Editor Adam Kleinman, writer Kate Zambreno and another mystery guest for a public elicitation drawing imagery from images. WdW Review is a new online platform organized around several international Desks; a series of framed debates; critical essays, and speculative image readings, published by Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art.
Emergency, with Leidy Churchman
Artist Leidy Churchman will display a new series of prints, and screen a short video to launch his new publication, Emergency. Jointly published by Boston University and Dancing Foxes Press, the book includes essay contributions by Manuela Ammer, Lanka Tattersall, and John Kelsey, and was edited by Barbara Schroeder and designed by Ginger Brooks Takahashi. There will be cake as part of the celebration as we bring this year’s Classroom program to a close!
El Libro Mutante
El Libro Mutante documents the evolution of Libros Mutantes, the Madrid Art Book Fair, which in the past 4 years has gained international recognition as a showcase for avant-garde, experimental publishing projects. Currently based at La Casa Encendida Arts Center, Libros Mutantes is the place to be for independent publishers from Spain, and this talk will show why, through a selection of some of the most exciting publishing projects from Spain. Participants include Silvia Bianchi, Ricardo Juárez, Carlos Primo of Libros Mutantes and Mónica Carroquino of La Casa Encendida / Acción Cultural Española (AC/E).
A Formal Film, with Mario Pfeifer and Markus Weisbeck
In the form of a critical reader, artist Mario Pfeifer and designer Markus Weisbeck created an artist’s publication that considers Pfeifer’s multiple screen high-definition video installation A Formal Film (2010) through essays and conversations from India and Europe. The publication itself is a collection of still-available printing techniques and paper stocks, locally and culturally specific to Mumbai. It also includes graphic illustrations only to be found in Mumbai, known as ‘Taxi Sticker Art’ as well as a ready-made bookmark in form of a political flag, representing India’s lowest caste – the Daliths, traditionally known as the Untouchables. Pfeifer and Weisbeck will give an illustrated lecture on the formal and material matters that shape this unique book, and will share insights in the research, design and print process with original materials.
9.5 Theses on Art and Class, with Ben Davis and Naeem Mohaiemen
Ben Davis discusses his new book, 9.5 Theses on Art and Class, recently published by Haymarket Books, about class, politics, and the art economy. The New York- and Dhaka-based artist Naeem Mohaiemen will join Davis in discussion.
Pages by Linda Simpson
In celebration of her new photo book Pages, high-profile drag performer Linda Simpson will be presenting a special edition of The Drag Explosion, her slideshow history of New York City's vibrant late 80s/early 90s drag scene. Focused here on Page Reynolds, the subject of Pages and a celebrity in her own right, Linda's photos illuminate an incredibly fertile period in New York's cultural history. A Q&A with Alexis Blair Penney of the contemporary drag troupe Chez Deep will follow, and Linda and Alexis will be signing their new books, both launched at the NYABF. Presented by Peradam.

The editions and booklets which make up the core texts for Book Motel will be available for purchase within the Friendly Fire section of the NYABF along with free copies of Red76’s Journal of Radical Shimming (JRS).
