HELP US GROW THE SG ART BOOK LIBRARY
SGABF is accepting submissions to the SG Art Book Library, a catalogue of published print materials that explore the creative possibilities of art book publishing to generate meaningful discourse. The Library believes in the importance of representing the diversity of our community, capturing the energy, vision, and voices of artists and practitioners.
Our collection prioritises art books that focus on sociopolitical concerns in Singapore and around the world—gender inequality, racial discrimination, human rights, LGBTQ+ issues, political activism, intersectional feminism, economic and environment struggles, and many more. We want to provide a safe, accessible space for art books that might not otherwise find their way into institutional collections.
Existing as a virtual space below, and occupying various physical spaces in Singapore over the course of the year, the Library is free and available for all to browse.

THE CABINET OF TRACESClémentine Deliss and Koen Sels
Published by APE (Art Paper Editions), 2019
The Cabinet of Traces is a collection of 73 traces left behind by various artists in residency at Air Antwerp. The traces presented in this publication form a diverse collection of objects, drawings, artworks, letters, and clothes. A catalogue of an ethnographic collection, this publication is a tool that feeds the imagination. It will be passed on to future artists in residency in order to evoke a reaction. New artists will extend the collection.
