A fair to remember, this annual Printed Matter-organized shindig enlivens MoMA PS1's outdoor courtyard and galleries with artists' books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines from more than 280 booksellers, antiquarians, artists and indie publishers. In addition to the bounty of bound eye candy, this year's fair hosts exhibitions honoring Bruno Munari and Ray Johnson, and brings back the Classroom, a series of conversations, workshops, and other artist-led activities featuring the likes of Genesis P-Orridge, Linda Simpson and Jens Hoffmann. Also on the docket are book signings, a special zinester fair called the Schoolyard, and performances by Hubble, William Onyeabor and Masks. The fair sails out Sunday with a closing night bash at Santos Party House with DJs Spencer Sweeney, S&M, Mathew Higgs and more.
