What is the Future of Art Book Publishing? Join us February 12 at The New York Public Library


ARTBOOK | D.A.P., ARLIS / NY and The New York Public Library present a panel discussion investigating how diverse publishers approach their long term viability in the commercial and academic marketplaces.

In the face of Amazon.com, bookstore closures, self-publishing options, and shrinking library budgets, who is publishing art books today, and how are they reaching consumers and researchers alike? Commercial publishers and distributors, as well as independent and grassroots organizations, must confront the sea-change in how readers interact with the printed word. E-books and other digital formats are gaining in popularity for fiction readers and an increasing number of academic disciplines, yet very few art books meet the digital demand, even as more images of art are available online. Moreover, art books remain expensive to produce due to the necessity of high-quality, and often high-priced, image reproductions, among other vexing issues. 
 
 The panel features leading figures in the rapidly changing world of art book publishing, including: Margaret Chace, Associate Publisher, Skira/Rizzoli; Paul Chan, artist and founder of Badlands Unlimited; Sharon Gallagher, President and Publisher of ARTBOOK | D.A.P.; and Chul R. Kim, Associate Publisher, The Museum of Modern Art, New York. The discussion will be moderated by NYPL Senior Art Librarian Arezoo Moseni. 
 

Margaret Chace has worked in art book publishing in New York as an editor and in various management positions since 1983. Currently she is Associate Publisher of Skira Rizzoli, an imprint of Rizzoli International Publications that specializes in art and museum books. She joined Rizzoli in 2010 after 8 years as Managing Editor at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she helped manage the publication program of exhibition and collection catalogues, quarterly member bulletins, wall signage, and edited the Metropolitan Museum Journal for 6 years. Prior to the Met, she was Vice President and Managing Editor at Abrams, where she worked for 18 years both editing a diverse range of titles and serving on the management team. 
 
Paul Chan is an artist who lives and works in New York. His work has been exhibited widely in many international shows including: Documenta 13, Kassel, 2012; Before The Law, Ludwig Museum, Cologne, 2011-12; Making Worlds, 53rd Venice Biennale, Venice, 2009; Medium Religion, ZKM, Karlsruhe, 2008; Traces du sacrê, Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2008 and the Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of Art, New York, 2006. Recent solo exhibitions include Paul Chan: The 7 Lights, Serpentine Gallery, London and New Museum, New York, 2007-2008. In 2007, Chan collaborated with the Classical Theatre of Harlem and Creative Time to produce a site-specific outdoor presentation of Samuel Beckett
