Tai Kwun Contemporary’s “Booked:” Hong Kong Art Book Fair is back for a fourth edition from 16 to 19 December 2021 in the first-floor gallery spaces of JC Contemporary and F Hall.
Featuring more than 80 publishers, artists, booksellers, and organisations, “Booked:” is Tai Kwun Contemporary’s annual celebration of art and publishing. Artist-made and artist-centred books—including zines, photo books, monographs, and critical as well as experimental writing—will be available for sale alongside associated publications and ephemera.
Once again “Booked:” will feature Hong Kong-based exhibitors sharing their publications on-site while continuing to offer non-local exhibitors the opportunity to participate from a distance through a twinning programme.
Visitors can also expect an exciting lineup of displays, book launches, talks, performances, and workshops during the fair as well. Jun Yang will present his artist publications as part of a larger installation using storytelling to reflect on how one’s sense of self can change and evolve. A crossover event with TK Conversations, “Booked:” will also host a talk on 16 December (7.30 pm), featuring celebrated photographer Wing Shya and Japanese designer Inoue Tsuguya.
Tickets will be available on Ticketflap from 23 November 2021. Limited numbers of tickets will be available on site.
