Printed Matter presents the seventh LA Art Book Fair (LAABF), April 3–5 at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA. Free and open to the public, the LAABF is among the leading international gatherings for the arts publishing community, providing a platform for artists and publishers to connect with audiences and circulate their work in a dynamic environment. The LA Art Book Fair is the companion fair to Printed Matter’s annual NY Art Book Fair.
Held over three days in downtown Los Angeles, LAABF 2020 will welcome hundreds of exhibitors from around the world, including a broad range of artists and collectives, small presses, institutions, galleries, rare and out of print booksellers, and distributors. With a commitment to diversity and representation, the event will serve as an open meeting place for an extended community of art book enthusiasts, as well as a site for dialog and exchange around all facets of arts publishing. A full calendar of free educational programming, book signings, artist-led events, performances, special exhibitor projects, and much more, will take place over the Fair weekend. Pia will be present during fair at the Valiz stand, so you will get to ask her all about our latest books and projects and some sneak peaks of what's to follow for the rest of 2020!
