New Independent Art Book Fair Coming to Brooklyn

The Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse

The Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse

Independent Art Book Fair (IABF), a new event bringing together artists, galleries, and independent publishers, will host its first edition in New York next month.

Founded by Karen Schaupeter, who also runs Ed Varie gallery, the inaugural fair is set for the weekend of September 16-18. It will take place at the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse, and will be free and open to the public. It will be held the same weekend as the annual New York Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1 sponsored by Printed Matter, but will be smaller and more intimate than NYABF, which in recent years has drawn increasingly large, festival-like crowds.

Exhibitors for the first edition of the IABF are coming from all over, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Brooklyn, Columbia, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Oakland, Providence, Richmond, Rochester, San Francisco, Saratoga Springs, as well as Amsterdam, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Montreal and Vancouver.

The opening reception of the fair will be held Thursday September 15.
