Episode 1

Art Books as Compelling Format for Artists

Featuring Renée ting and berny tan
In this first episode, we will introduce how art books are a compelling format for artists. We will define and share what art publications are, and how they can be an ideal format for artistic presentation and documentation for artists. Next we will unpack the “daunting” idea of publication as a format, focusing on the common challenges described by people who are unfamiliar with the processes of planning a publication. Crucially, we will also describe the co-creative process of art book making, introducing roles of editors, designers, printers and collaborators that can help collectively realise an artist’s vision.

In the conversation portion of this episode, we will be hanging out and talking about books with Renée Ting and Berny Tan from the Singapore Art Book Fair team. They will be sharing about their favorite types of books from their own collections.
