EXHIBITOR PROJECTS



Anteism Books

              Anteism Books—together with Artists + Machine Intelligence (A+MI), a research program at Google—presents a selection of print editions, objects and art books by artists working with artificial intelligence. Featuring works and essays by Casey Reas, Ross Goodwin, and Hito Steyerl, this project space celebrates an emerging art field with the publication of a new zine that catalogues contemporary artist-engineer collaborations, and explores what it feels like to collaborate with intelligent systems.


Gagosian

                Gagosian presents a project space exploring the multifaceted work and influences of painter and performance artist Spencer Sweeney. Sweeney, along with collaborators Lizzi Bougatsos, Jennifer Herrema, and Kurt Midness, will record a musical performance directly onto a 7-inch single using a record lathe—a device for making individual records by cutting into the vinyl, in real time. The lathe will continue to be utilized and demonstrated throughout the duration of the fair as additional records of the performance are created and made available, along with accompanying record sleeves that are themselves limited edition prints by Sweeney.
                Alongside this and other editioned works, a library of books and ephemera curated by Sweeney reflect and expand upon how the sonic, visual, and mystical are inextricable within the artist’s work and practice. Select Gagosian publications will focus on similar multidisciplinary themes and feature Los Angeles artists.
 

Corita Art Center

                The Corita Art Center in Los Angeles was established in 1997 to preserve and honor the legacy of Corita Kent (1918–1986), an artist, educator, and advocate for social justice. Since its founding, the Center has facilitated hundreds of exhibitions of Corita’s work, maintained the largest collection of Corita’s works, and housed her archival materials, including prints, books, and watercolors. At LAABF, the Center presents an exploration of its archive alongside a selection of screen prints by the artist.

Paper Cuts

                Duplex is a project by Paper Cuts, the collaborative publication endeavor of Sara Greenberger Rafferty and David Kennedy Cutler. A duplex refers to a house divided into two apartments and to duplex printing, where an impression is left on both sides of a piece of paper. Paper Cuts: Duplex is a double-sided, double-floored, fully-scaled structure for displaying and selling editioned publications.
