Submit your books to THEBOOKSHOW

(from the press release)

THEBOOKSHOW is a Singapore-based initiative that began in 2014. It aims to act as a platform for aspiring artists to showcase books conceived out of passion. Through the use of the book, a basic and familiar medium, THEBOOKSHOW advances towards being a mediator between the art world and the general public. Our hope is to bring a renewed perspective upon our eyes.We believe very much in challenging the medium – moving away from the conventional form that the book takes. In time, we hope to build a substantial database advocating that the book form is an art in and of itself.

THEBOOKSHOW will be holding our third pop-up book show event from 25-26 July 2015 and this time, they want your books!

If you have always been interested in photography and have been making your own self-published photo-books, this will be a great opportunity for you to have your book exhibited and sold in the show! Your book will be exhibited alongside established local and international artists like Robert Zhao, John Clang and Zhang Xiao.

Submission package must include:
• A hard copy of your self-published photo-book
• Artist information and contact details
• Artist statement and title of the work

Upon submission, the books will be reviewed by a panel of judges: Ang Song Nian — Artist and Co-founder of THEBOOKSHOW, Robert Zhao — Artist, Pann Lim — Creative director of Kinetic and 1/4 of art collective Holycrap.sg, Gwen Lee — Co-founder and director of SIPF and 2902 Gallery.

Selected entrants will be notified by 30 June 2015. If selected, you will be asked to produce more copies of the book and contribute an administrative fee of $20 that will go into the realization of this event.

Submit your books by 31 May 2015 to DECK, 120A Prinsep Street, Singapore 188665. Submission can be done either via mail or hand delivery (Book-drop hours: 12-5pm daily, closed on Mondays and Public Holidays).
