Printing Plant Art Book Fair in Amsterdam

thumbnail_Printing Plant Art Book Fair

From November 23 to 25 I’m participating in the first edition of the Printing Plant Art Book Fair. I’m sharing a table, or rather a vertical panel, with Joachim Schmid and will be bringing my most recent publications including Indirections, De wolk, The Plan, and one of the last two copies of the special edition of Song of Myself.

The fair is initiated and organised by Looiersgracht 60. The unique housing and history of Looiersgracht 60 is utilised to correspond to the etiquette of the fair. Prior to its current use as a not-for-profit exhibition centre for art, design and architecture, Looiersgracht 60 was home to a cardboard and paper factory that also printed pamphlets, posters, limited-editions and cards for artists and museums. The building thus has a long-standing connection with the artist community in Amsterdam, making it the ideal location for ‘Printing Plant’. By reiterating its past and previous function, Looiersgracht 60 conceives of a new platform for printed matter. Over 70 selected independent publishers, antiquarian dealers, artists, galleries and printmakers will be showcasing their works.

Printing Plant is part of the official programme of Amsterdam Art Weekend 2018. The opening will take place on Friday November 23. Over the course of the weekend, the fair will be complemented by a programme of talks, book launches, performances, signings, and workshops for children.

More information is available here.

Opening hours:
Friday 23 November 12:00-21:00 (opening 17:00-21:00 with performance + live music)
Saturday 24 November 12:00-20:00
Sunday 25 November 12:00-20:00

Free Admission

Location:
Looiersgracht 60
1016 VT Amsterdam
