A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Silkscreen

Coffee table feeling a little light on cool-looking conversation pieces? That’s where the NY Art Book Fair comes in. Curated by the experts at Printed Matter, and co-sponsored by our pals at Opening Ceremony, the fair, which opens tomorrow and continues through the weekend at MoMA PS1, is the perfect place to stock up on rare, design-forward monographs and ‘zines (like the now-out-of-print David Wojnarowicz: Rimbaud in New York, from PPP Editions, pictured at right). How to best navigate the hundred-plus exhibitors from over a dozen countries? Stop first at Iconoclast Editions—publisher of street-art stalwarts and DIY-ers from Shepard Fairey to Harmony Korine—and then head straight for the BOMB Magazine archives, where you can tap into thirty years of the Brooklyn-based collective’s insider look at art and literature. Also not to be missed: Photographer Mark Borthwick (whose pictures you’ve spent hours staring at in your local Rag & Bone store), who’ll be on hand to launch The Heart Land (Powershovel), and Glenn O’Brien, who’s signing issue #9 of Bad Day magazine on Sunday.
