Bound Art Book Fair

Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 November 2023

Bound Art Book Fair
at the Whitworth

Bound Art Book Fair is an annual celebration of artist publishing practices based in Manchester, UK.

Event dates:

Saturday 25 November, 11am-5pm
Sunday 26 November, 10am-5pm
FREE entry, no need to book

The fair will feature dozens of local and international publishers, artist presses, and collectives, as well as a free public programme of talks, workshops, and parties.

This year the Bound Art Book Fair 2023 programme has been developed to complement the current Whitworth exhibition (Un)Defining Queer. We’ll explore the use of fashion media as a critical tool for communication, and survey historical and contemporary uses of print to celebrate, unify and inform LGBTQI communities and other marginalised identities.

Guests include Jason Evans, Amber Pinkerton, Sports Banger, Christopher Shannon, Cheddar Gorgeous, Stuart Linden Rhodes, Sunil Gupta, Jesse Glazzard, Richard Phoenix, the International Library of Fashion Research + more to be announced.

Bound Art Book Fair's mission is to provide a platform for a diverse and international range of projects and exhibitors to share their work and reach new audiences, with a particular focus on those from the North of England. They build and sustain communities around print publishing practices whilst exploring the potential for expanded forms of publishing that engage or interact with performance, music, sculpture, fashion, moving image, and activism.
