Sharjah Art Foundation’s annual art book fair, FOCAL POINT, returns for its second edition with a wide range of printed matter and a larger representation of independent publishers. The platform caters to the interdisciplinary nature of art publishing and aims to present a focus on independent and alternative publishing practices presented alongside a select number of larger, more established publishing houses.
The three-day fair will feature regional and international artists and publishers who will present their content individually or within curated sections. As part of the broader presentation, this year’s content will include a special focus on zines and comics.
Educational workshops for adults and children will run alongside the book fair, details of which will be published on the website closer to the event. Workshop participation is free, but registration is mandatory.
