ARTBOOK sells books to the passionate audience of people who work in and live through the arts. We were founded by the same team that runs D.A.P., the world's foremost distributor of books and exhibition catalogs on the arts, in order to partner with cultural institutions and businesses who want to enrich their programming with true content -- the kind you find in a well-conceived, authored, and designed book.
● ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 is a true museum bookstore, a treasure trove of books, DVDs and CDs rarely found elsewhere and a destination for lovers of contemporary culture. In June 2012, we opened a second shop: an international magazine store in the MoMA PS1 lobby stocking more than 300 of the world's best magazines on art, fashion, design and culture. Both the bookstore and the magazine store work closely with MoMA PS1 curators to organize weekly events including signings, lectures, and performances.
● ARTBOOK @ Walker, the book section at the world renowned Walker Art Center's Walker Shop, features the Midwest's most up-to-date and provocative selection of monographs, exhibition catalogs, artists' books, children's titles and gift books for the culturally inclined. ARTBOOK @ Walker brings in new titles weekly from the world's most prestigious publishers, including many local favorites and a few exquisite outsiders. The book selection is inspired by the world-renowned curatorial programs of the Walker Art Center. Whether you are expanding your own library, choosing a thoughtful gift for a friend, seeking new reference materials or shopping for a beautiful children's book, you will find a perfect selection at ARTBOOK @ WALKER.
● ARTBOOK @ Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is an arts and culture bookstore within Hauser & Wirth's Los Angeles location in a converted historic flour mill. Bringing an experimental dynamic to book selling, ARTBOOK will devote a large portion of its retail space to spotlight selections that change every several months, focusing in great depth upon different movements and themes in contemporary and 20th-century art. Complementing current exhibitions as well as new developments in art practices and writing, these rotating thematic displays will include new releases in addition to important backlist books, indie press titles, imported catalogues and out-of-print selections.
● ARTBOOK @ Swiss Institute was a two-year (2014-2016) curated pop-up bookshop at the Swiss Institute contemporary art center in New York. For each new exhibition, ARTBOOK freshly installed an entirely new thematic focus, new choice of titles and eclectic selection of publishers. Browsers and collectors alike were treated to a library-quality display of new releases, classic titles, museum catalogues, out-of-print and rare books, hard-to-find treasures, indie magazines and limited editions. Each theme store was conceived in collaboration between ARTBOOK's Skuta Helgason and the Swiss Institute with input from represented curators and artists.
● ARTBOOK @ FAIRS bookshops have become a regular fixture on the international art fair scene for more than 15 years. We organize and manage curated pop up stores for Frieze New York, the Armory, Art Basel Miami Beach, Design Miami, Art Platform LA, the Hong Kong Art Fair and others.
