The PHOTOBOOK at Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney

Sydney's Museum of Contemporary Art, this coming Sunday, May 25, will host PHOTOBOOK DAY curated by the Asia Pacific Photobook Archive.

Australia’s photobook community is under one roof for one day only, alongside the MCA’s 2014 Zine Fair. The Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive has brought together the nation’s leading photobook publishers and editors, alongside the leading indie and street photobook producers and makers to sell, show and discuss their works. This event will feature book signings, launches and a free seminar on contemporary photobooks in Australia. You will also be able to browse the incredible collection of DIY, limited edition, POD, and handmade books from the Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive.
Exhibitors include M.33, Perimeter Books, Mack, Bloom, The Photography Room, Heavy Collective, Pearce Press, Blurb, Momento Pro and many more.

Between 3 and 4.30pm on Sunday MCA will host in the Veolia Lecture Theatre a panel discussion and Q&A session featuring well known Australian and International photobook and magazine distributors, publishers, editors and producers. The theme of the conversation will be around the current rise of the photobook internationally as a new creative mode and avenue for the dissemination of photographic work that brings with it great opportunities as well as significant challenges.
Panellists include Ying Ang, Helen Frajman (M.33), Dan Rule (Perimeter Books), Harvey Benge, Benjamin Chadbond (Try Hard Magazine) and Daniel Boetker-Smith (APPA). Chair: Prof Christoper Stewart (UTS).
