A Seasonal Art Book Fair Returns to K Road
Motivated by the lack of online and offline spaces to buy and sell independent art books in Auckland, Strange Haven follows the wildly successful Winter Art Book Fair with the Spring Art Book Fair.
Held on Electric Night of Artweek, the small-but-lively fair will host a select group of artists, galleries and independent publishers presenting carefully-crafted books and limited-edition publications that reflect a diverse body of thought relating to art, design, theory and practice—while also exhibiting the creative powers of New Zealand's bookmakers.
Current stall holders include GLORIA, Compound Press, Remote Photobooks, Michael Lett, RIM Books, Clouds, Enjoy Public Art Gallery (Wellington), Physics Room (Christchurch) and Ngatahi Publications with more to be announced.
With a mission to initiate and establish an accessible space where the art publishing community can connect with one another and the wider community, the art book fair is free and open to the public.
In support of the newly opened Samoa House Library, a donation table will also be set up on site to encourage both attendees and book sellers alike to gift books to this amazing initiative. To learn more about the Samoa House Library visit their website here: www.samoahouselibrary.org.
We will also be launching Off the Press: The Art Book Directory in association with Soar Print on the night of the fair.
