ARTS LIBRIS: Books and art inundate Barcelona

By Eva Martín. April 19, 2013


Come along and be one of the first to browse the catalogue of digital publications available at visualMANIAC, our digital bookstore specialising in art, architecture, design, photography and visual culture!

Arts Libris, the Barcelona International Art, Photography and Design Book Fair, is finally here. For the fourth year running, the event will be held at the Arts Santa Mónica space. Around one hundred galleries, handmade book workshops, experimental publishing houses, specialised bookstores, editors and colleges of art and design will be exhibiting their publications and projects from 20 to 23 April.

We couldn’t let this event slip us by here at visualMANIAC so we’ll be there showcasing our platform at stand 77 on the 2nd floor of this former convent converted into an arts centre. Pay us a visit to find out more about the publishing houses and magazines available on our catalogue and enjoy their publications in digital format using our iPad app.

Arts Libris is more than just a fair. Its programme is crammed full of exhibitions, discussions and, for the more creative among us, workshops, including one about Japanese bookbinding offered by Escola d’Art i Disseny La Llotja. This year’s edition, specially dedicated to photography, counts Tacita Dean and Peter Fillingham amongst its invited international artists.

Arts Libris is becoming one of Europe’s most important specialised fairs. It has been growing over the last four years and now occupies the entire Arts Santa Mònica space, with the first two floors dedicated to exhibitors, workshops and conferences, and the third to the exhibition, Pasando Página, El libro como territorio del Arte, dedicated to the history of artists’ books. The OFFPaper exhibition organised by Have a Nice Book, alongside the BOOKIP, Feed My Lambs, Paloma al aire and Atzavara #1 exhibitions are the icing on the cake for the 2013 Arts Libris exhibition programme. And we certainly won’t be missing any of it.

See you in Barcelona!
