Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to announce the third iteration of our Prairie Art Book Fair from Friday, September 9 to Sunday, September 11, 2022 in the Plug In ICA galleries.
Established as a means of acknowledging the critical relationship between contemporary art and publishing with a regional focus on the Prairies, PABF provides a space for publishers and artists to share their work and for the art book community to intensify and flourish. The fair showcases publications and events from publishers, artists, and galleries with Prairie connections and aims to share zines, catalogues, artist editions, fiction, poetry, criticism, and periodicals and support readings, launches, and workshops.
At Bay Press will have a booth set up at this fair. For more info visit: https://plugin.org/exhibitions/prairie-art-book-fair-2022/
