Canada at the NY Art Book Fair 2009
Ottawa, September 29, 2009 – A record 24 Canadian exhibitors will attend the fourth annual NY Art Book Fair 2009 in New York City from October 2 – 4 with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Department of Canadian Heritage. The Fair hosts over 200 international presses, booksellers, antiquarian dealers, and independent artist/publishers presenting a diverse range of the best in contemporary art publications.
This year Canada is the featured country so the Fair will include a special Canadian reception on Friday, October 2. The event will feature art projects by Daniel Barrow and Allyson Mitchell, current recipients of the Canada Council for the Arts International Residency Program – International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York.
