Announcing the inaugural Prairie Art Book Fair

Prairie Art Book Fair
September 7-9, 2018
Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art

Unit 1- 460 Portage Ave, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3C 0E8

Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to announce our inaugural Prairie Art Book Fair which will take place September 7-9, 2018.

The fair will be held at Plug In ICA and will be dedicated to exhibiting the diverse and accomplished work of Prairie-based publishers and booksellers.

Plug In set this initiative in motion as a means to acknowledge the critical relationship between contemporary art and publishing. We have seen resurgences in art book fairs within the international contemporary art field and we would like to join the fray, but with a regional focus on the Canadian Prairies with crossover into the US. 

In addition to a focused selection of exhibitors who represent the strength and breadth of Prairie publishing, the roster will also include several special guest exhibitors including our key presenter editor and publisher Jeff Khonsary, Co-Founding and Artistic Director of Fillip (Vancouver) and Director of New Documents (Los Angeles / Vancouver). Jeff will speak about his work and host a workshop on publishing as practice. Full list of exhibitors to be announced in June.
