Blonde Art Books and Small Editions will be leading a series of informal discussions about topics in artists books with like minded artists, publishers, organizers, collectors, curators and librarians. This program is organized to encourage discourse, discovery, and collaboration within the emerging publishing community. The first half of the program will be reserved for the roundtable discussions followed by a public group discussion and Q&A.
At 1:00 PM artists, writers, and publishers are invited to participate in open conversations with some of the most fascinating curators, librarians, and organizers in New York. Topics will include: accessing local collections and diverse resources, learning about upcoming opportunities, and gaining feedback about publishing projects.
