Penelope Umbrico at New York Art Book Fair

Gallery artist Penelope Umbrico will be featured at the New York Art Book Fair – which takes place September 26-28 at MoMA PS1 – in celebration of her new book, “Out of Order: Used Office Desks and Used Office Plants For Sale.” Produced by RVB Books, the book delves into Umbrico’s interest in the fluid ownership of objects and images, as well as the shifting perception of photography.

The artist will be signing books at the fair tomorrow, September 27th, at table C18 starting at 5pm.

Free and open to the public, the NY Art Book Fair is the world’s premier event for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines. This year, the fair features over 350 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, institutions and independent publishers from twenty-eight countries. Last year’s fair was attended by more than 27,000 people.

We congratulate Penelope on the release of this publication, and look forward to hosting her upcoming solo exhibition at the gallery, “Mountains, Moving: Light Leaks, and Chemical Burns” (opening Thursday, October 2, 6-8pm).
