22nd International Contemporary Artists' Book Fair

22nd International Contemporary Artists' Book Fair


Performances, workshops, keynote talk and hundreds of artists' books.

This year The Tetley and PAGES bring new artists and work to the 22nd International Contemporary Artists' Book Fair. Experience The Tetley come alive through artists' books and our exciting programme including spotlight presentations, workshops and keynote talk. Our longest-running artists' book fair outside of London is a perfect chance to meet and chat with artists, collectives, publishers and imprints – including international participants.

Our keynote speaker is Sumi Perera, an interdisciplinary artist whose interactive work draws on her background as a doctor and scientist. Sri-Lankan born and now based in London, she creates multiple series from a set of printing plates by combining hybrid printmaking techniques with stitch and Computer Numerical Controlled methods. Her work has received international awards and is held in many public collections including the Tate Britain, V&A Museum, Ashmolean, Oxford and Yale Centre for British Art.

Explore our current exhibition, The Tent, by Kannan Arunasalam, who is presenting a new film installation, alongside a selection of his existing short films, reflecting on identity and the meaning of loss against the lasting impact of Sri Lanka's civil war in 1983 – 2009.

To complement our artists' book fair,  why not plan a visit to The Hepworth Wakefield's Print Fair, held on the same weekend
