- More than 100 exhibitors expected at weekend Art Book Fair
By Carlos Valladares - Tuesday Jul 18, 2017
The thrill of art in print guides San Francisco’s second annual Art Book Fair, opening Friday, July 21, at the Minnesota Street Project.“We are looking to provide an event, a venue and a market for the great independent art publishing in the Bay Area,” Alexander says.Eager to replicate the success of last year’s Art Book Fair, the focus is on making this year’s fair “more robust,” with more special programming and a heavier international and LGBTQ presence.On that note, what’s sure to be one of the weekend’s biggest highlights is a panel discussion on Queer Threads:Crafting Identity and Community, a new art book published by Ammo Books.The panelists include John Chaich, co-editor of the book, and four other featured Bay Area artists:Chaich and the artists will discuss the 192-page book, which spotlights 30 contemporary queer artists working in the mediums of fiber art, textiles, and craft traditions such as crochet, knitting, and quilting.Chaich’s vision for the book, he says, was to make something that could live as comfortably at an art school library as it could at Urban Outfitters, with broad appeal to academic and non-specialized readers.“We really wanted the book design to give you the experience of a studio visit,” he says.“I think the place of art book fairs in a digital age really speaks to an audience’s hunger for the tactile, finely crafted object,” he says.O’Arwisters, whose art explores his identity as a black queer man coming of age in the Jim Crow South, has struggled to find a place in traditional galleries for nearly 25 years.“I had to ask myself, ‘What do I really want from these — mostly white male — museum curators?’” O’Arwisters says.“This calm, relaxing and peaceful atmosphere was just what a confused little black queer boy needed when the world outside was often negative, hostile and unforgiving,” he says in an interview with Danny Orendorff in the book.Carlos Valladares is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.Tamara Shopsin will perform “Swingin’ Salami,” a performance piece involving salami, sandwiches and other eats. 3 to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 22, in the Media Room.
