Tired of yet another photobook fair? Disappointed by sales? Can’t find a drink or a seat? Looking to expand the boundaries of the book?

Aperture in collaboration with 10×10 is pleased to present Art Book and Photobook Fairs: Alternative Approaches, a panel discussion—conceived by photobook collector David Solo—exploring those items and more to generate some new ideas for the next generation of fairs and festivals.

Featuring: David Solo (moderator), Works on Paper, Photography and Photobook Collector; Arthur Fournier (panelist), Fine and Rare Books; Amelia Lang (panelist), Associate Publisher at Aperture; Harper Levine (panelist), Harper’s Books


David Solo (moderator) is a Brooklyn based collector of photography, contemporary Japanese and Chinese art, and especially artist and photobooks.  He is actively involved with a number of institutions in London and New York as well as individual photobook research and publishing projects. David is also a visitor to and participant in a wide range of book fairs, festivals and related events.

Arthur Fournier (panelist) is a Brooklyn-based bookseller who specializes in social justice materials and avant-garde cultural movements. He has established a notable presence at Printed Matter’s NY and LA Art Book Fairs with large-scale archival exhibitions and curated selections of rare books, serials, and ephemera. He lectures occasionally about punk and postmodern printing in the Graphic Design program at Yale and was a featured speaker the 75th Anniversary Symposium in 2017 for Harvard’s Houghton Library.

Amelia Lang (panelist) is the Associate Publisher at Aperture Foundation in New York. She has worked on publications as both project manager and editor since joining the organization in 2011. She previously lived in San Francisco, where she worked as a curatorial assistant, archivist, and project manager on exhibitions and publications. She received her BA in Art History and US History from Lewis and Clark College, and in 2016 completed The International Leadership Program in Visual Arts Management, an art and business certificate for professionals. This innovative certificate is accredited by both the Guggenheim, Bilbao, University of Deusto, and New York University.
