How to Art Book Fair started out as a book with advice on how to “table” at art book fairs and zine fests. The project has now turned into a video, performance and web-based work the explores the act of tabling and selling books.
How to Art Book Fair, 2019, 5 minutes and 17 seconds, HD Video.
This video attempts to show the realities of tabling at an art book fair. The video shows both the fun, boredom and difficulties of tabling at a book or zine fair, while also comically making fun of the act of selling books. This video was created for the Internet Art Book Fair web-based project curated by Leah Mackin.
