HONG KONG – Tai Kwun Contemporary’s BOOKED: Hong Kong Art Book Fair is back for a fourth edition from 16th to 19th December 2021 (Thursday to Sunday) in the 1st floor gallery spaces of JC Contemporary and F Hall.
In light of ongoing travel restrictions, BOOKED: highlights how reading can be a form of travelling. As such, the distribution of books offers the opportunity for disparate people and communities to stay connected over great distances—and moreover to expand horizons and spark one’s imagination.
Featuring more than 80 publishers, artists, booksellers, and organisations, BOOKED: is Tai Kwun Contemporary’s annual celebration of art and publishing. Artist-made and artist-centred books—including zines, photo books, monographs, and critical as well as experimental writing—will be available for sale alongside associated publications and ephemera.
Once again BOOKED: will feature Hong Kong–based exhibitors sharing their publications on site while continuing to offer non-local exhibitors the opportunity to participate from a distance through our twinning programme.
BOOKED: will showcase a number of displays, book launches, talks, performances, and workshops during the fair as well—bringing the larger world of publishing to Tai Kwun. In addition to other projects and programmes to be announced soon, one highlight is a display featuring Jun Yang, who will present his artist publications as part of a larger installation using storytelling to reflect on how one’s sense of self can change and evolve.
As a crossover event of BOOKED: with TK Conversations, we will host a talk by the celebrated photographer Wing Shya with the Japanese designer Inoue Tsuguya on Thu 16 Dec (7:30 pm).
BOOKED runs from 16th to 19th December 2021 (Thursday to Sunday) an the 1st floor gallery spaces of JC Contemporary and F Hall of Tai Kwun. For more information, visit https://www.taikwun.hk/booked/.
