The DART Board: 09.19.2019

By Peggy Roalf   Thursday September 19, 2019

Each September the global arts intelligentsia converges at the NY Art Book Fair, proving beyond doubt that printed matter of artistic origins is, more than ever, a viable form of expression. Organized by Printed Matter, and held at MoMA PS1, the roster of participants covers the spectrum of art book publicatios, from trade to one-off zines; from hand-held art experiences to installations—and an expansive list of pubic programs on the subject. Last year’s event included the zinesters of (XE)ROX & PAPER + SCISSORS and the Small Press Dome, which presented publishing at its most innovative and affordable, to rare and antiquarian dealers offering out-of-print books and ephemera across art and artist book history.

Everywhere throughout MoMA PS1, the former schoolrooms vibrate with verbal cues printed on paper, Kevlar, Lucite, T-shirts, tote bags, and a new message medium, socks—sock it to me?
