Tokyo Art Book Fair (TABF)
23/11/2023 - 26/11/2023

Finland guest curator at the Tokyo Art Book Fair - the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo.

The Temporary Bookshelf was invited to curate 50 titles from Finland, to be presented and sold at the Nordic Art Book Store. 

In addition, a selection of 10 artist books from the Rikhardinkatu Library Artists’ Book collection were presented. The 10 titles have been selected by Emmi Martin, Heini Korhonen and Hikari Nishida. The selection acts as a representation of the collection, from the artist’s book as a unique object to printed multiples. 

TTB’s Special Zine collection was launched during TABF. It consists of a series of self-published titles from 17 artists and designers based in Helsinki: each of them have been invited to publish a title “carte blanche”.

The Sunken Garden hosted a live music performance with Yoichi Kamimura & Ásta Fanney Sigurðardóttir: 
sounds from Finland to Iceland and Japan.

Cast aluminium letter bookstands were designed by Helsinki Type Studio.

The curators of the Nordic Art Bookstore were invited to participate to a talk event.
