Coming up at g39: B - Artists' books fair

Saturday 29 August 12-6pm

B is g39’s first artist book fair. We are looking to connect DIY self publishing, small artist book publishers, and innovators in the book form. Through exhibition, sales, performance, and discussion, we will explore the form of artists' books today.

Working with Landfill Editions we have curated a programme of local and national artists, publishers, printers and performers.

The day will include:

Tertulia – The in-conversation series #1
A workshop looking at that most important, though regularly undervalued, vehicle for the critique, development, and dissemination of art practice – informal conversation.
Including an experimental in-conversation between Tertulia co-founder Phil Owen, and conceptual composer Luke Nickel.
Tertulia was founded by Phil Owen and Megan Wakefield in 2010 as a forum for experimental practice around language and voice.

Yellow back books, is a new group researching artist book bookshops, and outlets for criticism of artist books. Yellow back books, will host a conversation between Eleanor Vonne Brown, founder of X Marks The Bökship, book designer Fraser Muggeridge, and artist/designer Alex Rich.

Mark Pilkington (Strange Attractor) will be Tarot Reading in collaboration with Suzanne Treister.
