The Editions/Artists' Books Fair

I discover something new and exciting every year at E/AB.

The Editions/Artists’ Books Fair (E/AB)--New York’s premier showcase for contemporary art publishers and dealers—returns for its 18th year thisThursday, November 3rd-6th to Chelsea’s Waterfront Tunnel (269 11th Avenue). Timed to coincide with New York Print Week, this year E/AB will showcase 40 publishers and dealers from across the US, Europe, South Africa, and Japan presenting new works by emerging, mid-career, and established artists in a variety of mediums.

Newcomers including Damien Hirst’s Other Criteria, Art+Culture Projects (New York), Japanese publisher Gallery Jin, and Warren Editions of Cape Town, South Africa will join Columbia University’s renowned LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies, Los Angeles based Cirrus Editions, and Minneapolis-based Highpoint Editions. Exhibitors will present acclaimed artists including John Baldessari, Julie Mehretu, Ghada Amer, Linda Benglis, MacArthur Genius Award recipient Nicole Eisenman, and rising stars such as Derrick Adams, LaToya Ruby Frazier, and Alexa Horochowski.

This year, E/AB has commissioned limited edition benefit prints to support the Fair’s mission to provide free admission and educational programming. Renowned American artist Philip Taaffe has created two arresting images -- "Extinct Leaf Page", created from a fossil found by the artist and "Lizard Page", an artful composition inspired by the carved lizards and toads that adorn the handrail of pulpit of the renowned Viennese church of St. Stephen, which symbolize the fight between good and evil .
