Returning for a 7th, socially-distanced edition, the Singapore Art Book Fair (SGABF) will host more than 70 local and international exhibitors, showcasing a wide selection of artist’s books, monographs, contemporary art editions, and other printed ephemera. The fair will be held at 2 locations — NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore and 72-13 — so that you can visit, browse, and buy safely.
SGABF2021 features an ‘Adopt-an-Exhibitor’ programme that allows local exhibitors to share their booths with an international exhibitor of their choice, or who has been matched with them. This means we can bring international publications to you, even in the face of global travel restrictions. This edition features exhibitors from Singapore, Australia, China, Colombia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Germany, South Korea, Thailand, UK, and USA.
The fair is also proud to present:
— Queer Zine Room, curated by Queer ZineFest SG and featuring over 20 exhibitors
— ‘Lucy’s Dictionary of Femininity’, a showcase by collective A Stubborn Bloom
— The SG Art Book Library, our growing catalogue of art books
— Book launches by NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore
The fair is open from 5 to 7 March 2021, Friday to Sunday, 12 – 8 pm. For health and safety reasons, visitor registration is required for this edition of the fair. Entry to both locations remains free. Register and find out more about safe distancing rules at each location at our website.
ABOUT THE FAIR
The Singapore Art Book Fair (SGABF) is an independent annual multi-day event celebrating contemporary art books & zines. Founded in 2013, it was the first of its kind in Southeast Asia, and has now established itself as one of the leading art book fairs in Asia. Each edition showcases the innovative approaches of exhibitors from Singapore and around the world, including artists, designers, distributors, small presses, institutions, galleries, zinemakers, and printmakers. Free and open to the public, the fair draws thousands of visitors each year.
SGABF is committed to deepening the understanding of art books in Singapore, and encouraging the exploration of this diverse medium as a crucial, if not central aspect of art and design practices.
