Norval Foundation hosts the second edition of the Cape Town Art Book Fair, a 3-day event bringing together galleries, writers, publishers, artists and independent book-sellers, and providing an opportunity to explore a variety of art books, zines and magazines.
The Cape Town Art Book Fair includes a dynamic Talks Programme comprising writers, curators and artists such as Pumla Dineo Gqola, Penny Siopis, Sean O’Toole and Gabrielle Guy. The associated programming includes workshops, events and kids activities.
Zine Space, a new initiative by Norval Foundation, in collaboration with Dream Press, takes place leading up to the Fair. Nine artists selected by a panel of judges participate in a four-session risograph printing workshop where they each produce an art zine which is sold, along with Dream Press’ other publications, at the book fair.
The selected nine artists are Anico Mostert, Brett Charles Seiler, Gerald Genie, Githan Coopoo, Louise Nöthling, Nathaniel Sheppard III, Neeske Alexander, Siphumelele Gumede and Wessel Mostert.
The CTABF Kids Nook includes special readings by artist Georgina Gratrix and Norval Foundation Education Coordinator, Lindsay Hendricks. There is also a colouring-in and activity corner for all kids to enjoy.
Space is limited, therefore booking is essential. Participants are asked to ensure they have booked for the correct date and time by selecting the correct date on the calendar and then using the drop-down list to book a time slot. (See book tickets.)
