LA Art Book Fair 2015
The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA
30 January – 1 February 2015
Printed Matter is presenting the LA Art Book Fair for its third edition. For the occasion, over 250 magazine makers, independent publishing houses, artists and dealers will be gathering in this Californian metropolis to gain an insight of the current trends in the art book scene.
Printed Matter is a non-profit organisation, headquartered in New York, committed to supporting and disseminating art books. Through its shop in Chelsea and its online catalogue, it sells over 30,000 publications a year giving artists the opportunity to submit their work and to become part of this network. In addition to the New York Art Book Fair which has been running for nine years now, Printed Matter also organises an art book fair in Los Angeles since 2013. With all aspects of the international scene participating in the event, visitors will be able to view and buy books, catalogues, monographs, journals and zines. The venue is The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, a former police car dealerships refurbished by Frank O. Gehry, which has been part of the exhibition space at the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles since the 1980s.
