Tune In to the Vancouver Art Book Fair’s 2021 Digital Fair, Oct. 18-26th

Attention art appreciators, word nerds, book buffs and publication lovers: the annual Vancouver Art Book Fair is returning from October 18th to 26th for its second digital edition, in celebration of VABF’s 10-year anniversary.

It’s time, once again, to celebrate the art of publishing in all its various forms – think DIY zines, digital publications, printed art books and more unusual, out-of-the-box applications – with nine days of online events, including talks and artist projects. Apropos to the Fair’s decade milestone, this year’s programming, curated by Eloisa Aquino (of Montreal’s B&D Press) is centred around the theme of “Histories”, interpreted and retailed from the fringes. As usual, all events are entirely free and virtually accessible to the public.

Exhibitors and presenters featured in this year’s fair will be representing the local publication, collection and artist/maker communities, as well as offering a diverse, global perspective (Alberta, Toronto, the US, Mexico, Argentina, South Korea, and West Africa are all represented across the program). Although the participants still aren’t able to physically gather under one roof – and the digital world, arguably, cannot replace the tactility of experiencing actual printed matter – the 2021 VABF Digital Fair remains solid, providing a conduit for invaluable connectivity, conversation and inspiration.

Stay tuned for the full program and find more details about the 10th Annual Vancouver Art Book Fair here.
