simple project NY would like to announce an open call for submissions for our online booth at Printed Matter’s Virtual Art Book Fair in February 2021.
This book fair that is held every September is one of the more important events for us. Because of health and safety regulations due to COVID-19 the New York Art Book Fair is not being held at its usual location at MoMA PS1, but will instead be held online. This new format may present some new challenges, but we are hoping to take advantage of this unique opportunity by inviting more artists from overseas.

- The work should be printed matter.

            Examples: books, photography books, prints, tote bags, sculptural books, pop-up
