The LA Art Book Fair is pleased to host four exhibitions at this year’s event. The varied exhibitions survey works by individuals significant to the artists’ book medium, as well as extensive group presentations.



Printed Matter presents QUEER ZINES, an inclusive survey of over 240 publications by international independent publishers, drawn from the collections of Philip Aarons and AA Bronson. QUEER ZINES is a historical survey of serial, independent publications with a queer sensibility, illustrating the trajectory of queer zine publishing from the early 70s to current day. Crossing traditional boundaries of race, class, and gender, these zines are often cheaply-produced and largely distributed by mail; their formal dynamism, their mixing of media, and their radical politics finding striking analogue in contemporaneous queer theory. The Exhibition is accompanied by a curated booth of contemporary and out of print Queer Zines for purchase, as well as a weekend full of Queer Interventions by a number of Queer Zinemakers:


1:00 pm Philip Aarons, Darin Klein, and Raymond Cha in Conversation
2:00 pm Queer Intervention: MASSIVE Gay Manga
3:00 pm Queer Intervention: Daily Life Storage
4:00 pm Queer Intervention: Josh Nece
5:00 pm Queer Intervention: SISTERS


Fabulousity is an exhibition of ephemera and photographs by Alexis Dibiasio surrounding 80s and 90s New York Club Kid Culture. This outrageous period of New York nightlife became notorious for its elaborate costumes, ostentatious drug use and high energy characters. This exhibition coincides with the recent publication of the book; Fabulousity: A Night You’ll Never Forget… Or Remember by Wild Life Press (UK).


Andrew Roth and PPP Editions is pleased to present a collaborative project created exclusively for the LA Art Book Fair by Leigh Ledare and Nicolas Guagnini. It consists of an intervention into 100 books on the social sciences: Marxism, psychoanalysis, linguistics, anthropology, philosophy, literary and art criticism, cultural studies, and literature. The intervention consists of circular holes filled with a variation of positions and possibilities within human sexual interaction.





Boo-Hooray hosts a presentation devoted to Swedish 60s underground artist and photographer Carl Johan De Geer. Exhibiting copies of and work from his underground magazine Puss, original silkscreens, fabrics and clothes he made, as well as a ton of vintage black & white prints of life in Stockholm in the 60s, curated by Johan Kugelberg and Ed Templeton.


Gagosian presents: Los Angeles-based artist Piero Golia will be seated at a table in conversation with Andrew Berardini for the duration of the fair. Piero and Andrew’s entire conversation will be transcribed in shorthand by a court stenographer, who will be positioned to the side of the proceedings, as if in a courtroom. While she types, the stenography paper will be captured in a receptacle below. At the end of the fair, the shorthand transcription of the complete thirteen and a half hour conversation will be packaged in a special case designed by Piero, the entirety of which will be for sale as an artwork/artist book. A limited-edition, signed and numbered print advertising the event in stenographer’s shorthand will also be for sale at the entrance of the booth.


Alden Projectsâ„¢ focuses on three artist-run alternatives during the 1970s and 1980s. This booth concept begins with Gordon Matta-Clark and Carol Gooden’s Food (opened in 1971), an artists’ collaborative restaurant bringing art and nourishment to unexpected places in the streets of pre-gentrified SoHo. Also with 112 Greene Street (another alternative artist’s collaborative), Matta-Clark and his urban interventions in the Bronx also inspired the creation of street smart, and also artist-run, Fashion Moda (opened in 1979 in the Bronx). Fashion Moda championed a community-based, collaborative model, bringing artists to the street, and the street to artists. Although the history remains significantly neglected, Fashion Moda was a signal institution responsible for the early fostering nascent street art, graffiti and hip-hop culture. This booth component consists entirely of artist-designed Fashion Moda exhibition posters documenting this extraordinary social and aesthetic gambit. Some bold faced names from the early days include: Jenny Holzer, Lady Pink, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Crash, Daze, Charlie Ahearn, Tim Rollins & K.O.S., Justen Ladda, John Feckner along with Fashion Moda’s own artist-administrators, Joe Lewis and Stefan Eins.

A super-sized subsection of the LA Art Book Fair; (XE)ROX & PAPER + SCISSORS takes over the Geffen annex with more than 125 international artists, zinesters, and small presses, offering a survey of independent publishing at its most innovative and affordable.
