Halifax Art Book Fair (HABF) and conference will take place on April 13th 2024 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Masked visitation hours 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. 

     Halifax Art Book Fair is a gathering for art publishers and art book enthusiasts. There is a significant art book history in Halifax that has largely gone unnoticed - HABF wants to bring Atlantic art books out in the open and foster a space for new friendships, connections and ideas. 
    This fair is book focused. Our mandate prioritizes artists' books, catalogues, monographs, periodicals, zines, or related printed material. Visitors can also expect programming about the art book and its surrounding concepts. 
    The HABF team is Andrew Hill, Marite Kuus, Neil Kehler and Nick Chapman. The team can be contacted through email and Instagram. 
    Alek Green is the fair’s technical director, providing audio and visual support. 

    The Fair acknowledges the generous financial support from Atlantic News and Visual Arts News.

    The fair takes place in Mi'kma'ki, on the unceded and stolen territory of the Mi'kmaq people. We are grateful to live, work, learn and play on these lands.
