Lifestyle: Singapore Art Book Fair


For all you art-lovers and bibliophiles out there, listen up — the inaugural Singapore Art Book Fair is here from 27 November to 1 December 2013 at Block 38 of the Gillman Barracks!

Jointly organised by local independent bookstore BooksActually and creative consultancy HJGHER, the Singapore Art Book Fair will be an annual book fair that specialises in contemporary art books and zines. Apart from familiar local names such as Math Paper Press, The Institute for Critical Zoologists, Underscore Magazine and Encounters Magazine, the fair will also feature a strong selection of regional and international titles such as Cereal, Offscreen, Mr. and so on!

Apart from books, you can also expect to be engaged in an array of interesting activities that will make an afternoon excursion to the Gillman Barracks worth the effort! The organisers have thoughtfully arranged a two-day weekend programme on 30 Nov (Sat) and 1 Dec (Sun) that includes talks with local artists such as Robert Zhao and Aiwei Foo, workshops on a variety of topics such as bookbinding, linocut printing and silkscreen printing, and even a live cooking demonstration!
