The sixth edition of Sharjah Art Foundation’s Focal Point art book fair – the region’s only art book fair, we think – features local and international publishers with book launches, talks, workshops and musical performances during its run (24 to 26 November at Bait Obaid Al Shamsi).
Featuring artists’ presses, bookmakers, self-publishers and non-commercial cultural producers, this year’s edition encourages the community to engage with independent publishing and the central role of books as tools for social mobilisation and the development of a free and just world. As well as the works on show, all available for purchase; the fair also has talks, book launches, artists’ signings, workshops, music and artist-made products. Winners of the 2023 Publishing Grant will also be announced during the fair.
