TORONTO ART BOOK FAIR TOABF 2016 | JUNE 16 - 19
Sagan Editions is so pleased to be participating in The Toronto Art Book Fair this weekend! Come visit us at table 8.108 - all of the editions will be available.
The Toronto Art Book Fair (TOABF) is a free public event taking place Thursday, June 16th - Sunday, June 19th at Artscape Youngplace (180 Shaw St. Toronto, ON) featuring curated exhibitions, 75 Canadian and international vendors, and community programming that includes a speaker series, readings, talks, launches and workshops.
In its inaugural year TOABF will highlight over 150 national and international artists, publishers, designers, curators, bookmakers, writers, and performers. TOABF is dedicated to increasing the visibility, dissemination, appreciation, and understanding of the artist’s book and its contemporary expression in print culture and visual arts. Independent artistic print culture has a rich narrative in Canadian art history, and is an often overlooked aspect of Canadian cultural identity. The goal of TOABF is to highlight these personal and collective stories, elevate the artistic integrity of artists’ books, multiples, and printed matter by presenting Canadian and international artists to a wide audience.
