    About the Vancouver Art Book Fair

    Free and open to the public, VABF is a multi-day festival of artists’ publishing featuring over one hundred local, national and international publishers, as well as a diverse line-up of programs, performances and artists’ projects.

    Featured artists travel to Vancouver from across Canada and the globe, and produce everything from books, magazines, zines and printed ephemera to digital, performative or other experimental forms of publication.

    Canada’s first art book fair, VABF is the longest-running international art book fair in the country. In 2018 the event is anticipated to attract more than 5,000 visitors from across the Greater Vancouver Area and beyond.

    On Artist Writes
    Shana Lutker

    When: Saturday October 20, 4:00pm
    Where: Artist Book Room, Library

    Los Angeles–based artist Shana Lutker (X-TRA) will present a talk on the role of artist’s writing in contemporary art discourse from an artist’s perspective. Focus will be on X-TRA’s recent Artist Writes series, featuring commissioned pieces by A.L. Steiner, Andrea Fraser, Martine Syms, and Pope.L. Looking at these examples and sharing clips of the associated public programs, Lutker will talk about how the series came together and about artist’s writing in a historical context, followed by a discussion with audience about artist’s writing as a form.

    Shana Lutker is a Los Angeles–based artist and Executive Director of Project X Foundation for Art & Criticism, the nonprofit Publisher of artist-run contemporary art journal X-TRA. Lutker’s sculpture and performance have shown widely, including the Whitney Biennial 2014, Performa 2013, and solo exhibitions at the Hirshhorn in Washington DC and Pérez Art Museum Miami.
