Singapore Art Book Fair 2013

Description
Awarded the Singapore Tourism Board Kickstart Fund, BooksActually and HJGHER have come together to co-organise the launch edition of Singapore Art Book Fair, an annual book fair specialising in contemporary art books and zines.

International publishers, distributors and retailers are invited to be a part of this year’s Singapore Art Book Fair. Visitors will include buyers and art book enthusiasts interested in gaining access and connection to the Asian world and art book buyers. Other art-related fringe activities such as film screenings, workshops, talks, live demonstrations will also be taking place.

“The first-ever art book fair will be held at Gillman Barracks—a former army barrack that has been converted into Asia’s up-and-coming destination for contemporary art. The Singapore Art Book Fair is scheduled to take place alongside other prestigious art events, such as the Affordable Art Fair, Singapore Biennale 2013, and the opening of the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA)’s inaugural programme.”

The best part: admission to the inaugural Singapore Art Book Fair is FREE!
