iabf16-001_flyer_3rIndependent Art Book Fair
Preview + Opening Reception: Thursday, September 15, 6-8pm
Fair Dates + Times: September 16 -18, 11am – 7pm
Independent Art Book Fair (IABF)
is a new event bringing together artists, galleries, and independent publishers. Founded by Karen Schaupeter, who also runs Ed Varie gallery, the inaugural fair is set for the weekend of September 16-18. It will take place at the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse, and will be free and open to the public. It will be held the same weekend as the annual New York Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1 sponsored by Printed Matter, but will be smaller and more intimate than NYABF, which in recent years has drawn increasingly large, festival-like crowds.
