Arcana Books Heads to Printed Matter’s Los Angeles Art Book Fair!
February 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
It’s that time of year again when you get to visit Arcana: Books on the Arts during the Printed Matter’s Los Angeles Art Book Fair at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA. Please check the event website for complete hours.
Beginning with a preview on Thursday, 2/23 through Sunday, 2/26, you will find them at Booth P05 with another enticing assortment of rarities including Pop and Conceptual artist books and catalogues, (maga)’zines, artworks + multiples, and an array of coveted posters, announcements, and ephemera. It’s a unique opportunity to shop many of the exquisite, inspiring, and rarely-seen items from the Arcana hidden-recesses and flat files.
In addition, they will be hosting two great book signings during the festivities! At Thursday night’s opening benefit, renowned gallerist, archivist, and editor Johan Kugelberg will be signing copies between 7:00 and 8:00 PM of his recent publication God Save Sex Pistols – the unseen and definitive visual history of the incendiary punk band. Presented by Arcana: Books on the Arts and Anthology Editions, both the Deluxe and swanky Ultra-Deluxe Anthology editions as well as the Rizzoli trade edition will be available.
On Saturday 2/25, New York-based photographer Aaron Stern will be joining Arcana at 3:00 PM to sign his hot-off-the-press We Live Behind The Moon Sometimes – an edition limited to fifty copies each containing a 5 x 7″ print. “Our memories are so often distorted to fit a narrative we create for ourselves. We replay memories the way we wish to remember and rebuild them to fit our own story. These images explore these themes as well the overarching theme in my work: love and loss, and how they relate to the landscape in our minds and around us.”
