FREE NY Art Book Fair at P.S 1
While collecting art books may not be the cheapest hobby, you can score some serious steals and stock up on zines at this year’s New York Art Book Fair. Hosted by one of my favorite bookstores, Printed Matter, over 280 publishers are taking over MoMa’s PS1 for your perusing pleasure.
Flip through an old archive featuring thousands of 90’s zines, as part of the “You Are Her” exhibit curated by GoteblÃ¼d Gallery. While the festival takes place all weekend, they’re offering free shuttle buses today to all the popular spots in Long Island City. Now’s your chance to finally get your ass over to Socrates Sculpture Park, Flux Factory and the Noguchi Museum.
While you might not have an extra $1,000 lying around to purchase Larry Clark’s Punk Picasso, you can still pick up some great independent magazines, and other collectible books for under $20. After flipping through the stacks, mosey on over to the Sculpture Center for the official after party, featuring a musical performance and art installation by Lara Schnitger. And who says you need to be well-read to be bookish?
