Public Programs

Art Book Fairs

Printed Matter organizes the NY Art Book Fair and LA Art Book Fair, the world’s two premier events for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, zines, and antiquarian publications.

Window Installations

Printed Matter’s longstanding Window Installation Series provides artists with the opportunity to produce and display site-specific works in our large, public-facing storefront window.


Printed Matter’s Publishing Program produces titles that explore the wide possibilities of contemporary artists’ publications, with particular emphasis on projects that fall outside of the interest of commercial publishing houses and may not otherwise be produced.

Curated Shelves

The Printed Matter Curated Shelf program aims to establish a network of partnerships with art institutions committed to supporting artists’ books, providing a forum for the broader disseminating of these works as an affordable and accessible medium.
