INDEX ART BOOK FAIR 2017
INDEX ART BOOK FAIR 2017

Index and Museo Jumex are pleased to present the third edition of Index Art Book Fair, an international artist book fair to be held ‪from April 14‬ to 16, 2017 at Museo Jumex.‬‬‬‬ Index Art Book Fair seeks to create a space for dialogue around art, architecture and design publications proposing a platform for the dissemination of ideas related to the production and experimentation of the creative print medium.

Index Art Book Fair brings together the leading independent art publishers from Europe, Asia and the Americas, with special emphasis on artist books and printed matter resulting from experimental approaches to editing, writing and printing. Established in 2014, Index Art Book Fair supports and promotes the production and distribution of art publications; an area that has become increasingly important in contemporary art in recent years. Art editions include images and/or text in experimental formats such as books, art texts and collectively edited magazines, as well as monographs and photography books. In this fertile ground, the work of international artists is made available to the public through affordable editions, creating an alternative space for art appreciation beyond galleries and museums.

Index Art Book Fair was founded by a group of artists, curators and designers with a long history in the publishing world in an international context. The team consists of: Jorge de la Garza, Maxime Dossin, Chantal Garduño, Tania Garduño, Frances Horn and Rafael Prieto.

INDEX ARCHITECTURE
Index Architecture is an international and interdisciplinary research project interested in the intersection between print and architecture. Index Architecture explores how these two areas inform each other through the simple question 'how do architects use the book?'. Index Architecture will present during this edition a collaboration with the Berlin bookshop 'Books, People, Places' which has curated a special selection of architecture publications that will be on sale during the fair.
