Bound Art Book Fair at the Whitworth

Saturday 25 November, 11am-5pm
Sunday 26 November, 10am-5pm
FREE entry, no need to book

The fair will feature dozens of local and international publishers, artist presses and collectives, as well as a free public programme of talks, workshops and parties. This year our programme has been developed to complement the concurrent Whitworth exhibition (Un)Defining Queer . We’ll explore the use of fashion media as a critical tool for communication, and survey historical and contemporary uses of print to celebrate, unify and inform LGBTQI communities and other marginalised identities.

Bound Art Book Fair’s mission is to provide a platform for a diverse and international range of projects and exhibitors to share their work and reach new audiences, with a particular focus on those from the North of England. We build and sustain communities around print publishing practices whilst exploring the potential for expanded forms of publishing that engage or interact with performance, music, sculpture, fashion, moving image and activism. Bound also instigates interim projects generating new publications and commissions, and we have worked with partners including the Working Class Movement Library, Derby International Photography Festival, and Sounds from the Other City.
