DEADLINE: 12/1/16 n.b. deadline has passed, so please don't fill in an application unless you have been in direct touch with Iain Morrison at The Fruitmarket Gallery. Artists’ BookMarket is The Fruitmarket Gallery's annual celebration of artists’ books and artist-led publishing. We offer artists working in book form a platform to display and sell their work. Described last year as the major Scottish artists’ book fair, our visitors and participants come from all over the UK.
Artists’ BookMarket is held across two busy weekend days. Over two thousand visitors came through the doors last year to see more than forty stalls spread across two floors of gallery, with many of them also attending events in the talks and workshops programme.
Previous participants include a range from the likes of long-term experimental publishers Book Works, through artists’ book pioneers such as Helen Douglas to some of the most interesting new talent from courses at Edinburgh College of Art with its strong teaching traditions in book making and illustration. There’s much local talent on show alongside representation of those who travel to take part in this increasingly prominent fair in the year’s artists book calendar.
We invite publishers, book makers and artists’ books organisations to apply for a stall, which costs £70+VAT. To enquire about running an event or workshop, feel also free to use this form, or to directly email Iain Morrison at The Fruitmarket Gallery: firstname.lastname@example.org
Previous events within the Artists’ BookMarket weekend have included book launches, experimental sound workshops and a flash fashion show. Many things are possible, and we look forward to hearing your ideas.
Expect an excellent weekend of book sales and discoveries. Be part of our strong selection of artist books makers, art publishers, illustators and designers, and paper-loving collectives.Contact the curator
Workshops happen at a designated table area set up in the galleries for approx. 12 people.
