Vancouver Art Book Fair 2020

Art Byte Critique goes international by joining the Vancouver Art Book Fair for 2020. Different book makers and zine artists from around the world are joining in. I think the organizers have done a great job to make the show interactive. When the book fair goes live, many dots on the main screen represent different tables. This does a good job or recreating that feeling of discovery when wandering and searching through a physical venue.

Six of Art Byte Critique’s members will be showing work at this venue:

Purchasing is available via links to artist’s preferred online shops. The part I’m really excited about, and eager to try, is the chat function where viewers can chat with the artists. I hope that you will check it out.

I am excited to announce that I am one of eight Art Byte Critique artists participating at the Setouchi Art Book Fair (October 25 – 27, 2019) in Takamatsu, Kagawa Prefecture. The book fair coincides with the last weekend of the Setouchi Triennale. Looks like there will be lots of great art books. I’m really looking forward to seeing new books and meeting more creators.

You can check out the Art Byte Critique members’ Instagram posts for possible updates on our projects for the fair.

    Last night after closing I got to hang the photos while staff prepared the shop for the next day.

    The 2 Chome Starbucks store is a 3 minute walk from Jiyugaoka’s south exit.

    If you see some work that you like, prints are for sale at my web shop. I will change the prints weekly so check out the web shop often. If you are interested in something at Starbucks that you don’t see on the web shop please contact me!
