In conjunction with Amsterdam Art Weekend, 22 - 24 November 2019, Looiersgracht 60is delighted to be organising the second edition of Printing Plant- an intimate three-day art book fair for like-minded, independent publishers and interested audiences. With over 80 (inter)national publishers, Printing Plant will present a remarkable selection of artist editions, catalogues, books, monographs, periodicals and zines that are generally unavailable in bookshops. Independent artistic print culture has a rich narrative in Amsterdam but there are few places for artists and publishing houses to present the progressive publications they are producing to the wider public. Many beautiful titles are only on view in a small selection of motivated and specialist booksellers, museum bookshops and galleries.  Looiersgracht 60 has taken up this opportunity to create a platformto support the art book of the present, and to foster a community of art-publishers both locally and globally.

The unique housing, and history, of Looiersgracht 60 will be utilised to correspond to the etiquette of the fair. Prior to its current use as an exhibition centre for art, design and architecture, Looiersgracht 60 was home to a cardboard and paper factory that also printed pamphlets, posters and cards for artists and museums. The building thus has a long-standing connection with the artist community of Amsterdam, making it an ideal location for Printing Plant. Spanning 750 square meters of exhibition space, the fair invites visitors to learn from a range of carefully selected independent publishers, antiquarian dealers, artists, galleries and printmakers who will be showcasing their works throughout the weekend.

Printing Plant Art Book Fair is initiated by Looiersgracht 60 Amsterdam and founded and directed by Soraya Notoadikusumo and Nadine Snijders. The fair is part of the official programme of Amsterdam Art Weekend 2019.
