Artport's Art Book Fair

March 2nd - March 5th, 2022

The first and largest artist book fair in Israel is back!

Over 300 books by more than 200 artists, 20 events that include conversations, panels and book launches, alongside 4 art performances about books, fanzines and other surprises, in a weekend dedicated entirely to books and art. After a break of several years due to Artport’s relocation and COVID-19 restrictions, the fair returns, bigger and richer than ever.

The first artist book fair in Israel was held in Artport since 2015 and immediately attracted thousands of visitors and shoppers for a weekend of books and art. The fair raised great interest and led to a flourishing in the field of artist books throughout the country. After a hiatus of several years due to the relocation to Artport’s new building and the limitations of COVID-19, the fair returns, bigger and richer than ever.

Many of the books in the fair are unique standalone objects that extend the artist’s practice, some are a continuation of an exhibition, some summarize a period of time, but all open a window to a new world that exists between the pages. Photography, painting, printing and illustration, hard leather bindings alongside pages stapled together, words woven into images, images that become a story, page-turning that becomes a journey – the art book fair is an exciting and sensational experience.

The selection ranges from books that were painted and hand-bound to those that were printed in a printing house, in workshops or were made at home, using copiers, from editions of a thousand copies to one-off, unique, special books. The “White Gloves Room” will be dedicated for rare and valuable artist books that were handmade in different printing techniques, independently or in workshops (such as  Harel Print Workshop in Tel-Aviv and the Jerusalem Print Workshop). These books are so delicate and precious, that in order to browse them, gloves must be worn.

Alongside the books, the fair will hold talks and panels on artist books featuring artists, curators, editors and designers, launch events for new books, different performances dealing with artist books created specifically for the fair, a ‘White Gloves Room’ featuring special editions, alongside a fanzine workshop where artist booklets will be produced and printed during the fair.

The fair is being held in collaboration with Magasin III Jaffa, and its new artists bookstore, Magasin III Jaffa Books.
