Editions / Artists’ Book Fair 2015

EDITIONS/ARTISTS’ BOOKS FAIR EXPANDS AND MOVES TO THE WATERFRONT NEW YORK TUNNEL DURING NEW YORK’S PRINT WEEK

November 5 – 8, 2015

269 11th Avenue, New York NY

NEW YORK, NY (September 8, 2015) – The Editions/Artists’ Books (E/AB) Fair–New York’s prominent showcase for contemporary art publishers and dealers, presenting prints, multiples and artists’ books– today announced its move to New York’s iconic Waterfront Tunnel. More than 50 exhibitors will showcase the works of mid-career and emerging artists, offering savvy and discerning art enthusiasts the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and enable them to buy prints, multiples and artists books.

The Fair is slated to take place November 5 – 8, during New York Print Week and coincides with its sister fair, the IFPDA’s Print Fair. “We were thrilled with the response from both exhibitors and visitors to last year’s Fair,” says Dusica of the Lower East Side Printshop – the organization that took over the management of the beloved fair last year. Year upon year E/AB Fair engages the public and builds awareness about, and an audience for, prints and multiples. “We are continuing to offer free educational programming and free entry to the fair so that others can experience all that the artists and publishers have to offer.”

PACE Prints Director Jeff Bergman, curator of the 2015 Fair adds, “E/AB Fair is a smaller and more convivial fair [than the IFPDA] and it has become an institution in the print world, calling together the spectrum of publishers, printers, book binders, and dealers who represent our community within the greater art world. Year after year, the group of exhibitors shifts, but a focus on innovative and historic multiples remains a steadfast goal. I was delighted to be invited to curate this year’s installment as the fair highlights the hard-work and ingenuity of my colleagues and the caliber of the work exhibited is consistently excellent.”

Among this year’s returning participating publishers are such notable organizations as the LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies at Columbia University (New York, NY) and Black Shamrock Etchings (Chicago, IL), to rising stars 10 Grand (Brooklyn, NY) and Shore Publishing (Tuxedo Park, NY). Following on the heels of last year’s successful debut under new ownership, new presses and dealers were eager to join the fold, including Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE) (Bay Shore, NY) and Burnet Editions (New York, NY).

ABOUT THE FAIR

Editions/Artists’ Books Fair is New York’s premier showcase for contemporary publishers and dealers, presenting the latest and greatest in prints, multiples, and artists’ books. The Fair is well known for its vibrant energy thanks to its innovative international exhibitors, and hundreds of artists shown.

Founded in 1998 by Susan Inglett of I.C. Editions, in partnership with Brooke Alexander Editions and Printed Matter, the Fair is now presented by the venerable non-profit organization, the Lower East Side Printshop. E/AB was the first fair to offer FREE admission, initiated with the intent to introduce a broad public to contemporary prints, multiples, and artists’ books. Seventeen years later the Fair continues to do just that.
