Focal Point: day one

14 November @ 4.00 pm - 10.00 pm

Free

The second edition of Sharjah Art Foundation’s annual art book fair presents a broad selection of printed matter, as before. The emphasis is on the interdisciplinary nature of art publishing, focussing on independent and alternative publishing practices which are presented alongside a select number of larger, more established publishing houses. This year’s iteration takes place 14 to 16 November; this year’s content includes a special focus on zines and comics.

This year marks the launch of the FOCAL POINT Publishing Grant, an award that supports book and print projects as well as independent set-ups demonstrating a long-term plan for publishing books and other printed matter. Ma3azef has been named its first recipient, currently a digital-only resource, Ma3azef, will publish a series of print publications in collaboration with Beirut-based design studio SHFRA, including a quarterly print magazine in Arabic which will be distributed through bookshops and art spaces across the MENA region and internationally.
