This past weekend, over 25,000 people flooded to New York’s MoMA PS1 for the annual New York Art Book Fair, presented by Printed Matter. This year’s fair took place from September 26–28, 2014 and highlighted over 350 publishers, independent art spaces, institutions, and artists from over 28 countries, with a special section of the fair dedicated specifically to the lively field of art book publishing in Norway. Projects included the launch of ALBUM by Eline Mugaas and Elise Storsveen, representation by Bergen Kunsthall, Hordlaland Kunstsenter, Entrée, FRANK, Kunsthall Oslo, Torpedo Press, VI, VII, and many others.
