2019 Publishing Section “Moveable Types”

January 17, 2019

Brussels-based curator Frances Horn organizes a robust selection of independent art publishers for ALAC’s 10th anniversary.

ALAC is thrilled to announce that our 2019 fair will include a robust selection of independent art publishers, offering fairgoers access to unique and rare editions, artist books and projects, art catalogues, monographs, photography books and zines from a diverse range of publishers in Berlin, Brussels, London, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Mexico City and more.

Conceived as an extension of our gallery exhibitors, ALAC’s publishing section, “Moveable Types,” highlights the importance of printed matter and publishing within contemporary art. Selected by curator Frances Horn, participating publishers will present material in collaboration with a lineup of artists who consider the extension of authorship to be a defining part of their practice. Each exhibiting publisher will offer only self-produced material, often as singular projects, often as new releases, and always in limited production runs. Make sure to check out our publishing section "Moveable Types," only at ALAC 2019.

More about Brussels-based curator Frances Horn: While Horn was an agent for MER. Paper Kunsthalle, she initiated the art book fair PA/PER VIEW at WIELS, Brussels in 2009 and has since had several satellite editions worldwide including Torino (at Artissima in colab with Mousse), London (Zabludowicz collection), Eindhoven (design week), Porto and Mexico City. She has also presented publishers at various book related events that include Index at Museo Jumex, Vernácular Mexico City, Independent Brussels, Acid Free Los Angeles at Blum & Poe, and Librairie Marian Goodman, Paris France.
