September 30–October 2, 2011

The NY Art Book Fair truly is the most democratic and relevant art event of the season.

The Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference is a dynamic, two-day event focused on emerging practices and debates within art-book culture.

The Conference is organized by the CABC Committee, a national group of art library professionals (including your very own ICP librarians). The conference sessions involve ICP faculty, museum educators and alumni: Victor Sira, Saul Robbins, Curtis Hamilton, Garret Miller, Pierre Le Hors, etc. Nayland Blake and the ICP/Bard MFA group have a booth at the fair.

In conjunction with the Conference:
Bringing together language-based artworks, poetry, and image-text dialogues, Adventures will pay homage to assembling practices developed by mid-twentieth century artists’ periodicals including Semina, which is the focus of a related exhibition at the NY Art Book Fair. Adventures, a specially commissioned publication edited by David Senior and featuring works by Alejandro Cesarco, Eve Fowler, Dora Garcia, William E. Jones, MPA, Carl Pope, Scott Reeder, Paul Sepuya-Mpagi, and others. Sales will support the Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference, which for the first time will offer free admission to all visitors. For more information, call (212) 925-0325 or write
