One of the many things that Art does so well is encourage us to look at our world in new ways. Each year, we at the Editions|Artists’ Book Fair take the opportunity to consider the way we look at and experience Art within the setting of E|AB. We begin by making the Fair free to the public providing the opportunity for the larger public to discover and learn about the medium of editions and artists’ books. We offer an inexpensive edition by a well known artist to emphasize the genesis of editioned work as an art for the people. Over the years we have hosted countless conversations, happenings, boxing parties and marching bands to inspire and provoke. This year we have invited sixty contemporary international publishers and artists’ book dealers to New York to share new projects, old projects seen in new ways and to consider new forms of distribution and education made possible by the internet.

The fourteenth, biggest and best ever Editions|Artists’ Book Fair will take place November 3rd–6th, at the former Dia building at 548 West 22nd Street in the heart of the Chelsea gallery district. As the longest running Fair of its kind, Editions|Artists’ Books is honored to continue its tradition of championing the unique medium of the artists’ edition. Alongside established international publishers, the Fair will feature promising up-and-comers, offering visitors a cross-section of the contemporary publishing community with a breadth and scope unparalleled by any other fair.

Join us for the opening night preview and champagne reception Thursday November 3rd from 6 to 9 pm for an exclusive first look at the Fair’s many exciting offerings. Opening night attendees will have an advance opportunity to purchase the highly anticipated E|AB commissioned print, which subsidizes free general admission during the run of the Fair and may only be purchased on site. Last year’s special edition sold out quickly, so don’t wait! This year, we have the great pleasure of announcing that FRED TOMASELLI has created an exciting new screenprint, “Bloom”, which will be available in a limited edition of 200 for $200.00. Tickets to the event can be purchased at the door.

Fred Tomaselli utilizes elements from both painting and collage to create intricate and delicately layered compositions. Known for embedding pills, medicinal herbs and plants in his collage/ painting hybrids, Tomaselli consistently creates decadent, visceral works which mine the depths of the psyche and cosmos, exploring their intersections with the natural and political world. Tomaselli’s exclusive, E|AB-commissioned print is available in a Limited Edition of 200. Tomaselli’s work has been exhibited internationally at such venues as White Cube, London; Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indiana; and The Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC. He is represented by James Cohan Gallery, NYC.

This year’s artist-designed lounge comes straight from Barbara Gallucci’s recent installation, Utopiary Terrace at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum. The Topia Chairs draw their inspiration from manicured topiaries, melding playfulness and functionality in an homage to the elegance of both nature and design. Gallucci received her MFA from Yale University; her work has been exhibited internationally with shows at Derek Eller Gallery, NYC; Carroll and Sons, Boston; Frac Le Quartier, France; and Site Santa Fe, New Mexico.

It is with great pleasure that we announce Graphic Matter’s participation in Editions|Artists’ Books ’11. Graphic Matter is a recently founded publishing company presenting an exciting new program of artists’ editions, including works by esteemed Belgian painter Luc Tuymans, Dutch photographer Hellen Van Meene, and painter Raoul De Keyser, among others. Graphic Matter emerged from Peter Ruyffelaere’s art book imprint, Ludion, and represents a new vanguard of recent publishing endeavors.

Carl Solway has curated a comprehensive survey of editions from artist Peter Saul, whose provocative paintings famously meld Pop Art with surrealist tendencies. Saul’s grotesque figurations are tempered by his trademark wit and sense of humor. Saul’s work has been exhibited at David Nolan Gallery, NYC; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The Jewish Museum, NYC; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and The Whitney Museum of Contemporary Art, NYC.

The LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies is pleased to present Rikrit Tiravanija’s first two-dimensional print, an ambitious and multi-faceted set of three 27+ foot scrolls. The result of over three years of labor and 40 student helpers, untitled 2008-2011 (the map of the land of feeling) documents the past two decades of Tiravanija’s life. Full reproductions of Tiravanija’s passport and artist notebooks are overlayed with silkscreen, chine collé, giclés and hand work. The work unfurls like a topographical timeline which transforms disparate elements such as images of maps, recipes and contemporary art references into a comprehensive and intimate survey of Tiravanija’s life. Tiravanija has exhibited internationally at venues including the Guggenheim Museum, NYC; Venice Biennale, 2009; MoMA, NYC; The New Museum, NYC; Reykjavik Art Museum, Iceland; Kunstverein in Hamburg, Germany and MoMA P.S.1, Long Island City. He is represented by Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, NYC.
