Singapore Art Book Fair is an annual book fair specialising in contemporary art books and zines.

BooksActually and HJGHER have come together to co-organise the Singapore Art Book Fair, an annual book fair specialising in contemporary art books and zines.

Witness local and international publishers, distributors and retailers come together and put out a selection of art books for enthusiasts of the printed matter, or simply people interested in gaining access to Asia’s art world. Other art-related fringe activities will take place, including film screenings, performances, talks and workshops.

The Singapore Art Book Fair will be held at The U Factory, a temporal experimental platform dedicated to discussion, exchange, and execution of shared visions, based at Gillman Barracks.
