From moving frames to turning pages with Martha Wilson, William Stover and Marit Følstad
Can ephemeral installations and time-based media art be translated or transcribed into the space of a publication? What challenges, methods and strategies can the artist turn to? Indexicality is a phenomenon far broader than language. Defying individual interpretation, the index refers back to a phenomenon – such as smoke as a possible index of fire. The panel will discuss the role of indexing or indexicality as a method of the artistic bookmaking process. In conjunction with the launch of her new book The Marble Index, artist Marit Følstad is joined in conversation with curator William Stover, founding director of Franklin Furnace Archive, and artist Martha Wilson.  Presented by Teknisk Industri.


2:00 – 3:00 pm
Sorry to dump on you like by Christopher Clary with Paul Soulellis
Clary will perform and discuss his new commission for Rhizome with Paul Soulellis. It’s tempting to call Sorry to dump on you like a pornographic work, since an actual porn collection is embedded within it—the artist’s own archive of men accumulated in fifteen years of web browsing. But these JPGs serve only as a substrate: thin scaffolding for an epic textual work that hangs loosely from the files. The work unfolds like a desktop opera with intimate exchanges between boyfriends and lovers, alternating between dramatic betrayals, breakups, and banalities. “It’s perverse and dull at the same time and there’s so much to unpack,” says Hyperallergic Editor-in-Chief Hrag Vartanian. Come for Clary’s performance and take home Sorry to dump on you like this as a zip, ‘zine, print, or flash drive.


3:00 – 4:00 pm
‘I can see that’ by Freek Lomme
A performative book launch, a loungy reading on tactility in the framework of the book ’Can you feel it? – Effectuating tactility and print in the contemporary’, by Freek Lomme, curator/editor of the project as well as poet and founding director of the Eindhoven (NL) gallery and publisher Onomatopee. Presenting artists in the practice of making and thinkers in the development of thought here and now, the project connects to tactile characteristics, guided by a specific focus on graphic, printed matter. During the specifically tuned vocal reading by Lomme, the audience gets to wear a particularly designed sleeping mask.


4:00 – 5:00 pm
Book Launch and performance. Presented by Nieves.

Image Text Ithaca
This event offers a series of works by recent Image Text Ithaca Fellows, Tony Cokes and Earl Gravy (Emma Kemp and Daniel Wroe), and the ITI Directors, Nicholas Muellner and Catherine Taylor. These presentations bring the confluence of language and image into the context of live encounter: reading, slide show, voice and video. Founded on the premise that the sustained interaction of writers and visual artists can produce an expanded horizon for printed and time-based works, Image Text Ithaca offers a summer symposium, an MFA program, and the publications of the Image Text Ithaca Press.


6:00 – 7:00 pm
The Book, the Woman and the Body Politic with Tatana Kellner and Juliana Cerqueira Leite, moderated by Corina Reynolds
The human body and its socio-political framework have been important themes in women’s artists books: both formally and conceptually. Artists Tatana Kellner and Juliana Cerqueira Leite explore an expanded perspective of women’s artists book publishing. Brazilian sculptor Juliana Cerqueira Leite will talk about the representation of female anatomy within her new artists book A Potential Space. Tatana Kellner, as both established book artist and founding member of Women’s Studio Workshop will provide insights into the socio-political content of her work and her role in supporting other female artists in this field. Corina Reynolds, founder of SmallEditions will moderate the discussion and Q and A.




12:00 – 1:00 pm
The Drawings of Susan Te Kahurangi King, with Chris Byrne, Petita Cole, Gary Panter, and Stuart Shepherd. Moderated by Tina Kukielski
To coincide with artist Susan Te Kahurangi King’s first museum exhibition (ICA Miami) and her first monograph (ICA Miami & Lucia|Marquand), curator and editor Tina Kukielski leads a conversation with a diverse group of panelists intimately familiar with King’s life and work. King’s drawings reveal an expressiveness that brings multiple narratives and a variant of styles to the surface in a fragmented symphony of foreground and background, high and low, line and color, space and time. Her work triumphs in dialogue with contemporary painting, echoing the comic-inspired work of painters such as Sue Williams, Laura Owens, and Joyce Pensato, work that similarly pulls from the poles of unique vision and common iconography. Yet in King’s work we see the unfiltered manifestation of a self-taught artist for whom art is communication, all the more relevant because she stopped speaking as a young child. King unexpectedly stopped drawing in the early 1990s. It was not until 2008, coinciding with the filming of a documentary film about her life and work, that she began to draw again. Join New Zealand outsider art specialist Stuart Shepherd, the artist’s sister Petita Cole, independent curator Chris Byrne and artist Gary Panter in conversation around the meaning and significance of King’s work.


1:00 – 2:00pm
The Source Digest by Cory Arcangel
A reading to launch the publication of The Source Digest, a paperback collection of issues 1–10 of Arcangel’s The Source zines, which each contain the code from his various software based works produced over the past 15 years. A signing will follow the reading.


2:00 – 3:00 pm
Parallel Encyclopedia #2 by Batia Suter, in conversation with Sarah Demeuse
This publication (Roma 284) is a sequel Suter’s first volume of Parallel Encyclopedia from 2007 (Roma 100). Suter: “In my work, I collect groups of images based on various themes and characteristics and I investigate how they can manipulate each other, depending on where, and how, they are placed. In the process of making this book, narrative lines unfolded before my eyes as I shifted images around during the editing process.” Suter will talk about her PE#2 with writer and curator Sarah Demeuse. Presented by Roma Publications.


3:00 – 4:00 pm
Available to everyone: Robert Jacks and Printed Matter with Peter Anderson.
The Australian artist Robert Jacks (1943 – 2014) began working with artists books in the late sixties, and consolidated this area of his practice after moving to New York in 1969. Among the first group of artists to sell their books through Printed Matter, Jacks developed a relationship with the organisation that continued after he returned to Australia at the end of the seventies. This presentation by writer and curator, Peter Anderson, provides a contextual introduction to Printed Matter’s current exhibition which features a selection of key book works by Jacks, as well as other significant early artist’s books from his collection. While some of Jacks’ books used low cost commercial printing methods, he is perhaps best known for the series of twelve ‘hand-stamped’ books of simple rubber stamp grids produced between 1973 and 1982. Presented by Printed Matter on the occasion of the organization’s 40th Anniversary.


4:00 – 5:00 pm
Ask New Lovers with Larissa Pham and Bettina Davis
For the launch of the latest novellas in the New Lovers series, Fantasian and One Valencia Lane, Badlands Unlimited is pleased to present a short reading followed by an open forum for sex, love & dating advice in the 21st century with authors Larissa Pham & Bettina Davis. Come with the candid questions you’ve been afraid to ask.


5:00 – 6:00 pm
DESPITE WHAT YOU MIGHT’A HEARD, I LIKE PEOPLE with Darin Mickey and Jason Fulford
Darin Mickey’s new book of photographs, Death Takes a Holiday represents a middle-aged man restlessly clinging to his youth and the hope of finding that elusive artifact to make anxiety subside and keep the reaper at bay. He shows us a community of recluses brought together by obsession and a pure love of music. This presentation will focus on Val Shively, owner of R&B Records in Upper Darby, PA. Val is one of the world’s experts and biggest collectors of 1950s vocal group 45s. Mickey and Fulford will play a selection of Val’s rare 45s along with an audio interview and photographs, both vintage and new. Presented by J&L Books.


6:00 – 7:00 pm
Confessions, by Jessica Jackson Hutchins with Gary Robbins
Confessions, an artist’s book by Jessica Jackson Hutchins, was commissioned as part of Jessica’s two-space exhibition of the same name at the lumber room and the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, Reed College in Portland, Oregon. The book is partially a documentary of these two shows and, as well as a documentary of its own creation. It was produced collaboratively with Container Corps over the course of several months in a way that embodied Jessica’s practice of sculptural collage—intuitively, with each page influencing the next. To celebrate the release of the book, Jessica will be in conversation with Gary Robbins, publisher at Container Corps.


7:00 – 8:00pm
Felt Book
The Institute for New Feeling will present a curated video screening from their online publication, the Felt Book. Borrowing from the structure of Fluxus scores, YouTube tutorials, eHow articles, technical diagrams, home remedies, etc., the Felt Book includes text, video, sculpture and interactive works from over 150 artists around the world, each proposing an instruction for “new feeling.”


8:00 – 9:00 pm
Hello Sun Hell Sign by Suzanna Zak
Suzanna Zak presents the slideshow performance, Hello Sun Hell Sign. Originally conceived while a fellow at Image Text Ithaca, the work is an investigation of the American vernacular landscape. The images span over 5 years of photographing signage while traveling, alongside landscapes from the signs’ locations. The text is partially derived from the signs themselves, their language and commands a jumping off point. It’s the concrete poetry of the corn fields. In conjunction with this performance, there will be a new accompanying zine of the same title published by ROCK BOTTOM. Get your fill of free dirt, this one’s dedicated to those who ride alone.




11:00 – 1:00 pm
The Anamorphosis Prize
The Anamorphosis Prize was established in 2015 to celebrate self-published photobooks and photo-based artist books. The shortlist of 20 photobooks selected for its second edition will be on hand for perusal during this event. This year’s jury includes Martha Wilson and the Anamorphosis Prize co-creators Anouk Kruithof and John Phelan, and the prize’s organizers will be present to discuss this year’s shortlist selections. The winner of the Anamorphosis Prize will be announced January 1st, 2017.


1:00 – 2:00 pm
The Measure of Reality by Maija Timonen with Lizzie Homersham
Maija Timonen and Lizzie Homersham will read excerpts from Timonen’s first book length work of fiction The Measure of Reality and discuss love, sex and the awkward political relation of body and mind.  Can ideology be discussed through its physiological effects?  How does love suffer in a time of economic austerity?  Timonen and Homersham will examine the way ‘internalisation’ figures in the text, as something that isn’t just a kind of adoption of a certain ideology, social reality, or understanding of the world, but is also shown as a process of taking something into oneself, into the body, in a material way.  Presented by Book Works.


2:00 – 3:00 pm
Healing Music for a Troubled World by Rudy Shepherd, with Brian Alfred, Elia Einhorn and Christof Knoche
Rudy Shepherd will present a Healing session for the fair and its inhabitants in conjunction with the release of his new publication.

3:00 – 4:00 pm
Visual AIDS presents DUETS on Nicolas Mourfarrege, with Sur Rodney (Sur), LJ Roberts and Alex Fialho
To launch the latest volume of Visual AIDS’ DUETS series, LJ Roberts, Sur Rodney (Sur) and Alex Fialho will discuss the art and life of Nicolas Moufarrege (1947–1985). An Egyptian-born Lebanese raised in Beirut, Moufarrege lived briefly in Paris before landing in New York in the early 1980’s. He molded a complex mixture of his cultural roots into idiosyncratic embroidered artworks and a distinct curatorial and critical writing sensibility that are highlighted in the DUETS publication through an interview between curator Dean Daderko and artist Elaine Reicheck. Artist LJ Roberts writes the publication’s foreword and archivist Sur Rodney (Sur) contributes the afterword. Visual AIDS initiated DUETS to foster dialogue between artists, writers and activists about their creative process and issues around HIV/AIDS, including maintaining the legacies of those like Moufarrege lost too early to AIDS. Presented by Visual Aids and Dancing Foxes Press.


4:00 – 5:00 pm
Only Human by Jill Freedman
In celebration of her first publication in over 10 years, Jill Freedman will discuss her work as a photographer in the streets of NY and beyond. Her first publication Old News: Resurrection City took her to Washington in 1968 at the height of the civil rights movement. A sharp-witted New Yorker, Jill is best known for her work with the NYPD and NYFD where she authentically chronicled the life and work of New York’s public servants. Only Human, published by Printed Matter with 8-Ball Zines, is a new compilation of images taken over 4 decades, which looks at the relationships between humans on earth.


5:00 – 6:00 pm
Konantu with Ivan Navarro and Courtney Smith
Iván Navarro and Courtney Smith’s new publication Konantu is visual document that gathers intimate image-fragments from the joint life and work of artists. The book spans a decade of hands-on love and labor, an amorphous beginning of sporadic incursions and superimpositions that gradually solidifies into a unified trajectory of creative production. Konantu crystallizes into a series of “Functions” – controlled, object-cued social encounters – where the artists braid their visual and intellectual preoccupations into a live drawing of human geometry. Navarro and Smith will discuss their joint work exhibited in the book. They propose to use the material elements of the “classroom”, (chairs, boards, desks or whatever is on hand) to create a non-standard configuration. Participants will be spatially organized in a way that provokes or promotes an intended type of interaction or response yet captures a spectrum of results. The event will also involve a liquid, especially designed for the occasion, to be imbibed and shared among the participants. Presented by Ediciones Popolet.


6:00 – 7:00 pm
Tarot Readings for the Future of Artists’ Books by Zebadiah Keneally
Do you have questions about the future of artists’ books? Are you searching for answers to questions like: How will technology interact with and change the form? What is the ecological responsibility of artists working in the medium? Are books responsible for Donald Trump’s candidacy? What is the secret to publishing a great artist book? Look no further! In his interactive performance, artist Zebadiah Keneally will publicly divine THE answers to YOUR questions using his patented “Tarot” deck: Lunch Is Very Important: All the Secrets to Life You Didn’t Know You Already Knew. Keneally will use his unique system of archetypes and icons to channel the future and reveal all you need to know about what’s to come for artists’ books. 100% satisfaction guaranteed.


Sunday Classroom Sessions in the MoMA PS1 Basement Theatre


12:00 – 1:00 pm
Scrapbook of the Sixties by Jonas Mekas
Jonas Mekas, filmmaker, writer, poet, and cofounder of the Anthology Film Archives, discusses Scrapbook of the Sixties, a collection of published and unpublished texts. Every week, starting in 1958, he published his legendary “Movie Journal” column in The Village Voice, writing on a range of subjects that were by no means restricted to the world of film. He conducted numerous interviews with artists like Andy Warhol, Susan Sontag, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Erick Hawkins, and Nam June Paik. This comprehensive collection of his writings, interviews, conversations, and reflections ranges across subjects like dance, cinema, photography, music, art, philosophy and poetry from the 1950s to the present. Presented by Spector Books.


1:00 – 2:00 pm
Suellen Rocca
To mark the publication of her first monograph, Suellen Rocca will discuss the work she made in mid-to-late 1960s Chicago while a member of the Hairy Who. The group’s four self-published “comic books” are pioneering examples of contemporary artists’ books, and their eye-popping work has inspired generations of artists in Chicago and beyond. While Rocca’s art shares the group’s ecstatic approach to representation, it uniquely addresses, in her words, “the cultural icons of beauty and romance expressed by the media that promised happiness to young women of that generation.” Joining her in conversation is Dan Nadel, founder of the Brooklyn-based publisher PictureBox, who has written extensively on Rocca and the Hairy Who. Presented by Matthew Marks Gallery.


2:00 – 3:00 pm
It’s About Time: a conversation between Karel Martens and David Reinfurt, moderated by Prem Krishnamurthy
Dutch graphic designer Karel Martens joins New York-based designer David Reinfurt for a conversation around questions of time and creative practice. Touching upon multiple aspects of their individual work, the event will be moderated by designer and curator Prem Krishnamurthy. Although primarily focused on different media — Martens on printed matter, and Reinfurt on software-based works — both designers extend the core activities of the field through their independent investigations, which range from experimental prints, edited publications, video and interactive works, and spatial installations. This aspect of both Martens’ and Reinfurt’s practice has led them to develop ideas and projects over durations that span years or even decades. Clocks themselves figure prominently in each body of work, as a way to mark time while also perform its passing. Since the 1960s, motorized clock mechanisms have played a crucial role in Martens’ kinetic sculptures, which use continuous movement to create shifting optical effects. Reinfurt (as Dexter Sinister and O-R-G) has published a suite of objects and apps since 2000 that tell time in novel and often perverse ways, asking viewers to slow down. Bringing two key figures into public dialogue, this event raises questions about design, contemporary visual practice, and the long gestation period of independent ideas.


3:00 – 4:00 pm
Social Medium: Artists Writing, 2000–2015
In anticipation of the launch of Social Medium: Artists Writing, 2000–2015, an anthology of seventy-five contemporary artists’ texts, Paper Monument convenes a discussion on the history of and variations within artists’ writings. In conversation with the book’s editor, Jennifer Liese, contributors Greg Allen, Ginger Brooks Takahashi, Josiah McElheny, John Miller, and Mira Schor will explore the significance of artists’ writing past and present, both in the context of their individual practices and as forerunners of the changes in writing we see today.


4:00 – 5:00 pm
The Proposal by Jill Magid with Nikolaus Hirsch
A discussion with Jill Magid to launch The Proposal with Nikolaus Hirsch, the series editor of Sternberg Press’ Critical Spatial Practice series. They will discuss Magid’s multiyear project that examines the legacy of Luis Barragán and questions forms of power, public access, and copyright that construct artistic legacy. The archive of Barragán was split in two after his death and with The Proposal, Magid attempts to bring together Barragán’s professional and personal archives by probing the architect’s official and private selves, and the interests of various individuals and governmental and corporate entities who have become the archives’ guardians. Magid’s artwork directly engages the intersections of the psychological and the judicial, national identity and repatriation, international property rights and copyright law, authorship and ownership, the human body and the body of work. Presented by Sternberg Press.


5:00 – 6:00 pm

The NY Art Book Fair is pleased to host eleven exhibitions at this year’s event. The varied exhibitions range in subject matter, from survey collections of works by individuals significant to the artist’s book medium, to curated presentations of historical ephemera.




Andrew Roth will exhibit a large selection of posters, zines and flyers from Toby Mott’s renowned PUNK collection. To accompany the exhibition of over 120 artifacts, they will launch Oh So Pretty: Punk in Print 1976-1980 published by Phaidon. This new, fully illustrated 500 page book (which will not be publicly released until later in the fall: ISBN 9780714872759) and the exhibition, focuses on the canonical pieces of graphic printed matter that accompanied the Punk movement and which on their own track the history of the politics that informed the music and the physical art that was left in its wake.


David Zwirner Books presents Oscar Murillo, in collaboration with Mandy El-Sayegh and Yutaka Sone, as they stage Room Services, a live multi-day drawing and printing performance specially organized for Printed Matter’s 2016 New York Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1.
The primary elements of Room Services will be workstations, where the three artists will generate new collaborative graphic works based on unbound book materials fabricated earlier at GHP Media, a printer located in Connecticut. Delivered on pallets, this “raw material” will be assembled on-site by Murillo, El-Sayegh, and Sone, as they continue to work with the printed sheets to create unique works, which then will be installed throughout the entirety of the space. Through the act of structuring Room Services, an operational assembly and book-production site, the artists will explore the boundaries of collaborative action, the distinct expressive potential of drawing, and the potency of the printed form.
Special thanks to GHP Media, West Haven, Connecticut.


Gagosian Gallery Gagosian Gallery is pleased to present FLASH FLASH FLASH, an exhibition as tattoo parlor. Devendra Banhart, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Douglas Gordon, Kim Gordon, Max Hooper Schneider, and Richard Wright have each created original flash art designs for the occasion. Fernando Lions and Gill Goldstein of Brooklyn’s Flyrite Tattoo will be tattooing these specially commissioned designs inside the booth for the duration of the fair. The tattoos will be hand-numbered on the bodies of the purchasers, and once six people have a tattoo, the design will be retired forever. In addition to their permanence on patrons’ bodies, each original flash artwork has been produced as a limited print by Brooklyn master printer Deb Chaney in an edition of six. Brian Roettinger has designed a special-edition book and relics acknowledging the authenticity of each tattoo for the project. The tattoos, prints, and books will all be available for sale on-site at the fair.

Maia Ruth Lee and Peter Sutherland present The Zine Tornado: A chaotic DIY zine-making experience!
