Editions/Artists’ Book ’04 just gets better and better. In a new, larger location, this unique Fair celebrates its seventh year as the premier showcase for contemporary publishers and book dealers exhibiting the latest in the medium of prints, multiples and artists’ books. Museum curators and collectors praise the event as pivotal within the publishing and contemporary art community.

Organized by Barbara Baruch of Brooke Alexander Editions, Susan Inglett of I.C. Editions, and Printed Matter, Inc. Editions/Artists’ Book ’04 will take place at the Starrett Lehigh Building in Chelsea located 601 West 26 Street on the 14th Floor.

The opening reception, Thursday evening November 4 from 5 to 8 PM, is being organized as a benefit for Printed Matter, an independent not-profit organization founded to heighten the visibility of artists’ publications and the world’s largest distributor of artists’ books, magazines, audio and video works. General admission for the opening night is $40.00 with a second ticket price of $150.00 to include a print by Kiki Smith made for the occasion. The Fair is pleased to announce a special opening night appearance by D.J. Spooky spinning artists’ recordings accompanied by Thurston Moore of the Sonic Youth on guitar. Timed to coincide with the IFPDA Print Fair, Editions/Artists’ Books brings the history of printmaking begun at the Armory up to the minute. The Fair is also part of a citywide “Print Week” organized by the International Fine Print Dealers Association to promote the medium of prints through exhibitions and symposia.
