Motivated by the lack of online and offline spaces to buy and sell independent art books in our fair city, 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.
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.
Stallholders include Clouds, Compound Press, Enjoy Public Art Gallery (Wlg), Index, GLORIA, Michael Lett, The Physics Room (Chch), Ngatahi Editions, Remote Photobooks, RIM Books and more. The artist-made table will include IWT, Inky Palms and more.
