Tai Kwun Contemporary's BOOKED: Hong Kong Art Book Fair is now welcoming applications from contemporary artists, art publishers, art bookmakers, and art organisations for its fourth annual art book fair, to be held from 16 to 19 December 2021. Marking its return to the Tai Kwun Contemporary galleries, the forthcoming edition of BOOKED: once again features Hong Kong-based participants and will be complemented by our “twinning” programme, which offers the opportunity for disparate people and communities to stay connected over great distances through books.
Ideal exhibitors will feature at least some of the following: artists’ books, zines, photo books, art monographs, critical/theoretical and experimental writing. Print-based and other ephemera (e.g. pins, postcards, posters, stickers, tote bags) are accepted so long as over half of the table includes books, zines, photo books etc. Applicants willing to participate in the “twinning” programme are also eligible to receive additional support.
BOOKED: Hong Kong Art Book Fair underscores Tai Kwun Contemporary’s dedication to presenting contemporary art publishing through its Artists' Book Library—a growing collection of Asia-centred, artist-driven publications, as well as special projects and programmes that support the cultural ecology in Hong Kong. This includes providing a platform for creative practitioners and publishers who are invested in books as a medium of artistic and intellectual expression to share their work. It also provides an opportunity for public audiences to enjoy and engage with these materials as an important resource for learning and research.
