Melbourne Art Book Fair returns for its fifth year in 2019.
Since the event began, the publishing and broader creative landscape has undergone many shifts.
The 2019 event asks what is publishing now? What is encompassed by the term and how can publishing bring about positive change on multiple fronts?
Featuring diverse emerging and established local and international publishers, artists and writers, Melbourne Art Book Fair 2019 presents a four-day program of ideas, discussions and book launches at the National Gallery of Victoria.
The 2019 program explores ideas around experimental and discursive publishing, challenging how we think about the publishing field.
Guests ask the question: what can books do? How might the form change?
How might publishing provoke and influence other creative and social phenomena such as fashion diffusion lines, capsule collections, event spaces, activist movements and community development?
