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.

Continuing her exploration of the intersections between choreography and typography, Nina Djekić plays with scale, layout and typeface, proposing a pace of reading at an unpredictable cadence by deconstructing the order and spatiality associated with the conventional ‘body copy’ of a book. She is attentive to the way the body relates to the book. Portable and light, Nina has considered how a book’s size and heft can condition the way it is held and read.
