Anteism Publishing @ New York Art Book Fair


Anteism will be at this years New York Art Book Fair, sharing a table with our com-padres Islands Fold. Come by and say hi to Harley, checkout our titles and get a sneak peak at what's to come. We would like to give a special thanks to Canada Council for the Arts & the Department of Canadian Heritage for the support which helped us be at the show. We are especially excited to be taking part in this years fair because Canada is a featured Country.

A record 24 Canadian exhibitors will attend the fourth annual NY Art Book Fair 2009 in New York City from October 2 – 4 with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Department of Canadian Heritage. The Fair hosts over 200 international presses, booksellers, antiquarian dealers, and independent artist/publishers presenting a diverse range of the best in contemporary art publications.

This year Canada is the featured country so the Fair will include a special Canadian reception on Friday, October 2. The event will feature art projects by Daniel Barrow and Allyson Mitchell, current recipients of the Canada Council for the Arts International Residency Program – International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York.

The Canadian exhibitors represent a cross-section of the visual arts publishing industry in Canada. Collectively, these exhibitors have a history (either directly or within their membership) of publishing art magazines, books about art, monographs, exhibition catalogues and limited-edition artists' works. Their publications represent artists and works produced and exhibited in Canada and available for export, either as direct publication sales, as traveling exhibitions, or in relation to international exhibition and publishing opportunities for Canadian artists.
