General

Welcome to the fourth edition of BOOKED: Hong Kong Art Book Fair! Presented by Tai Kwun Contemporary, the art book fair welcomes over 80 local, regional, and international exhibitors—including publishers, artists, booksellers, and organisations—complemented by a programme of book launches, talks, workshops, displays and performances. BOOKED: provides 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 diverse audiences.

Marking its return to the Tai Kwun Contemporary galleries, this forthcoming edition of BOOKED: once again features Hong Kong–based exhibitors along with our twinning programme, which offers non-local exhibitors the opportunity to participate from a distance, and for disparate people and communities to stay connected over great distances through books. In light of ongoing travel restrictions, BOOKED: highlights how the distribution of books can serve as its own form of “travelling” by expanding horizons and sparking one’s imagination.

Tai Kwun Contemporary's Artists' Book Library

The Artists’ Book Library is an ongoing collection of Asian artists’ books and an integral part of the Arts Programme of Tai Kwun Contemporary. Artists’ books are publications that have been created as artworks, in which artists use books as a medium of artistic expression. Often published in limited numbers, sometimes even unique pieces of art, artists’ books challenge the idea, content and form of traditional books. Tai Kwun Contemporary's Artists' Book Library is open and accessible to the public, free of charge, as a source for learning and research.
