The second edition of Printing Plant Art Book Fair takes place at the end of November, during the Amsterdam Art Weekend. Printing Plant is an intimate three-day art book fair for like-minded, independent publishers and a broadly interested audience. With more than 80 national and international publishers, Printing Plant presents a versatile selection of artist editions, catalogs, books, monographs, magazines and zines that are generally not available in regular bookshops. Independent artistic print culture has a rich tradition in Amsterdam, but there are few places for artists and publishers to also present the progressive publications they produce to the wider public. Many beautiful titles can only be seen in a small selection of motivated and specialized booksellers, museum bookshops and galleries. Looiersgracht 60 has therefore created a platform to support the contemporary art book.
Looiersgracht 60, a former cardboard and paper factory where pamphlets, posters and cards for artists and museums were printed, is now an exhibition center for art, design and architecture. The building therefore has a long-term relationship with the artists' community of Amsterdam, making it an ideal location for Printing Plant. The fair covers an area of 750 square meters and invites visitors to become acquainted with a series of carefully selected independent publishers, antique dealers, artists, galleries and print artists who will present their works throughout the weekend. In addition to the exhibition stands, there is a public program with lectures, discussions, book launches, performances, book signings and workshops. Valiz is therefore very excited to participate in this second edition of Printing Plant. Valiz is excited to be joining Printing Plant again for its second edition and we look forward to telling you more about our (newest) books and current projects.
