We are now inviting submissions for participation at the 19th Leeds International Contemporary Artists' Book Fair at The Tetley, Leeds, UK. This two day event will take place on Saturday 5th March (11am-6pm) and Sunday 6th March (11am-4pm) 2016.

Leeds’ International Contemporary Artists' Book Fair forms the core of PAGES activities – a rolling programme of interrelated events that aim to establish critical engagement with the medium of the artists’ book raising awareness, encouraging production and creating new platforms for display and exchange between audience and maker.

Now in its third year at The Tetley, LIABF 19 is presented in conjunction with this year’s PAGES curated project: PICTURE BOOK, a series of exhibitions and events exploring image-based artists’ books running from 21 January – 6 March 2016. 

PICTURE BOOK and LIABF19 incorporate a comprehensive series of discussions, workshops and performances throughout the exhibition period and the book fair weekend.

The Tetley is a new centre for contemporary art and learning located in the stunning art deco headquarters of the former Tetley Brewery in central Leeds. Centred around creativity, innovation and experimentation, The Tetley is a place that develops future artistic talent and opens the minds of young people, whilst at the same time engages families and individuals of all ages.
