17—20 June
ArtsLibris, International Fair of Artists' Books and Contemporary Editions, is a meeting place for publishers operating in the fields of art, photography, design and the array of printed matter created by artists in the 20th and 21st centuries.

It aims to provide artists and publishers a place to present their publications and foster relations among collectors and the general public, with a view to igniting discussions on contemporary culture, promoting the presence of publications and artists on the international circuit, opening up the publishing market and, in short, reconnecting the arts and publishing with society.

Created and directed by the publisher and gallery owner Rocío Santa Cruz, right from its origins the fair has been based in Barcelona, home also to the Arts Santa Mònica. Centre de la Creativitat, that coincides with the festivities put on in April to mark Sant Jordi. In February, ArtsLibris is also held as part of the ARCOmadrid fair.

The fair’s increasingly international vocation has been strengthened by the surge of foreign exhibitors and the expertise of a qualified team of curators and professionals comprised by Glòria Picazo, art critic and independent curator, specialist in artists' books and Pedro Torres, curator and arts manager; and an international committee comprised by professionals involved in the past editions of the fair.
