We are thrilled to share that we will partner with NYC-based Printed Matter to organize a presentation of artist book publishers at the 19th edition of NADA Miami at Ice Palace Studios, November 30–December 4, 2021 during Miami Art Week.
This exciting collaboration will host exhibitors featuring new work as well as historical and rare publications, accessible and DIY approaches to bookmaking, and subject matter that engages with varied critical perspectives. The onsite presentation will be accompanied by a digital platform featuring a schedule of free online programs in addition to exhibitor and publication highlights.
Applications are now open and exhibitors will be selected based on the strength of their materials. Artists, publishers, and booksellers are invited to apply with their most recent projects. All are welcome and local Miami applicants are especially encouraged. We are able to accommodate approximately 35 exhibitors in a tented area at NADA Miami’s Ice Palace Studios. The space will allow for tables with and without wall display, and exhibitor fees will range between $500–$1200. These fees, as with all of Printed Matter Fairs, will go directly toward the hard costs of producing this non-profit production.
This event at NADA Miami is a unique opportunity for publishers to engage with a large audience of art enthusiasts and launch new projects. Printed Matter partners with a handful of art fairs around the world, allowing them to expand the reach of their mission by representing communities near and far and sharing a broad range of contemporary art publishing with the public. We're grateful to NADA for this kind invitation.
Applications are now open here, the deadline to submit is Monday, August 16, at 11:59pm EST. As noted above, space is limited. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
