On January 31st, Printed Matter presents the LA Art Book Fair at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in downtown Los Angeles. The fair is a companion to the NY Art Book Fair, held every fall in New York, which last year had a reported attendance of over 20,000.
The free event is dedicated to artists’ books, art catalogs, monographs, and periodicals, and this year features a special focus on 'zines. Over two-hundred booksellers, artists, and publishers from twenty countries will present work.
Featured projects include an homage to Mike Kelley, an installation by John Armleder with Three Star Books, Untitled Originals by Richard Prince, and a Larry Clark pop-up shop and an installation of t-shirts and skateboards from the photographer/filmmaker's extensive collection, including items used in the films Kids, Bully, Ken Park and others.
