Despite reports in the art world of the imminent “death of print” – in Tel Aviv, we know that the opposite is true. Printing extends the artists’ work from gallery walls and digital media. Sometimes, artists’ books exist as projects in their own right.
Artport Tel Aviv, a non-profit center for emerging art in the city, is celebrating this venerable art form. Last year Artport hosted it’s first Art Book Fair. It thrived, attracting hundreds of people. They are enthusiastic about continuing and have curated another one!
This year’s Art Book Fair is this weekend and will feature over one hundred artists’ books, art magazines and other printed works.
Visiting hours: Thursday (the event’s opening), Jan. 28th, 18:00-23:00, Friday Jan. 29th 10:00-16:00 & Saturday Jan.30th, 10:00-18:00.
