There are a number of terrific things happening during the Melbourne Art Book Fair, and we thoroughly encourage you all to try to check out at least one of the excellent events in the program! Here are just a few we recommend.
If you're looking for something to do on Thursday 16th March, then we heartily recommend you head down to the Clemenger BBDO Auditorium at 10am to attend the International Symposium on Typography which is presented by AGDA as part of the Melbourne Art Book Fair 2017!
Featuring globally acclaimed local and international practitioners including Radim Peško, Sara De Bondt, Mia Frostner & Robert Sollis, Vincent Chan, and Catherine Griffiths, this day-long symposium will explore contemporary developments in type design and typography. It promises to be a super informative and interesting day for type enthusiasts!
You will need to book in order to attend, so call (03) 8662 1555 to score yourself a ticket! For more information, head here.
What better way to start your weekend than attending the Melbourne Art Book Fair Party at NGV International in Federation Court? You'll get after hours access to international and local publishers and practitioners, plus enhoy food, drinks, and a live DJ performance. Bookings required!
Melbourne wordsmith legends The Good Copy are "looking under the bonnet of art writing" and reporting back. Penny Modra and Meredith Forrester promise to explore what MONA refers to as 'art wank' and find out exactly why writing tends to become infinitely more pretentious as soon as the subject turns to art.
