Editions/Artists’ Books Fair (E/AB) 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 Lower East Side Printshop, a non-profit organization. It was the first fair to offer FREE admission, initiated with the intent to introduce a broad public to contemporary prints, multiples, and artists’ books. Sixteen years later the Fair continues to do just that.
In 2014, the Fair was curated by Faye Hirsch, Contributing Editor, Art in America. Gathering over 40 exhibitors from around the US, and Europe, the Fair was presented at the recently renovated Art Beam building in New York’s Chelsea. The Fair took place November 6 – 9 during New York’s Print Week, to coincide with IFPDA’s Print Fair, and dozens of special exhibitions, talks, and workshops throughout the city.
