BOOKED: 2021 Art Book Pop-Ups, a leading art book festival in Asia, returns for its third edition from 25 to 28 February 2021 (including a preview on Thursday, 25 February).
This year, BOOKED: 2021 is presented within various “pop-ups” throughout the heritage buildings at Blocks 1, 3, and 9, around the Parade Ground of Tai Kwun. As a special "boutique" edition, BOOKED: 2021 brings together not only Hong Kong-based participants but also non-locals contributing from a distance through a special “twin” partner programme. BOOKED: 2021 also offers a programme of editions, special projects, and talks and workshops, both on-site and online, fostering a platform for creative practitioners and publishers who are invested in books as a medium of artistic and intellectual expression to share their work with public audiences.
With over 80 local, regional, and international exhibitors taking part, BOOKED: will serve as a platform for the diverse range of artistic and publishing practices at the intersection of” art” and “books”. What is presented includes (but is not limited to) artists’ books, photography books, art albums, zines, art catalogues, art history and theoretical texts, artists’ editions and gallery editions (e.g. prints), texts by artists, book arts and book sculptures, as well as art-related ephemera such as tote bags, pins, and badges.
