This August, Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair (LAABF) returns to Los Angeles—the first time back since 2019! LAABF 2023 is taking place August 10–13 at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in the Little Tokyo neighborhood of downtown Los Angeles.

LAABF 2023 will feature more than 300 international exhibitors, including artists and collectives, small presses, institutions, galleries, antiquarian booksellers, and distributors. This year’s Fair will forefront artists’ books from Latin America and Asia-Pacific, feature a newly commissioned exhibition and mural, and highlight LA-based artists, community-driven projects, and interdisciplinary artists’ publishing practices from around the world.

Explore our website and register today to join us! The Fair will be a jam-packed weekend of on and off-site programs, including book launches, discussions, performances, workshops, and special projects, many produced with cultural institutions throughout downtown LA.

Entry to the 2023 LA Art Book Fair is ticketed and with advance registration. Some Fair days are ticketed with limited tickets available at the door. No one is turned away for lack of funds. Advance ticket purchase and registration is highly encouraged due to limited capacity in the building and crowd flow. Ticket sales help support this non-profit production.
