Antwerp Academy Art Book Fair

Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp

On Saturday October 14th 2017, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp will open its doors to the 4th edition of the annual Antwerp Academy Art Book Fair.

This fair has become a must for lovers of avant-garde material, artists’ publications, exhibition catalogues, art books, magazines and other art related printed matter. Again we will host more than 70 publishers, artists, antiquarians and art centers from Belgium and abroad. They will offer a range of high end and affordable gems.

This fourth edition will have some new profiling: contemporary publishers and artists will have its ‘core’ (PRESENT) at the centrally situated Wintertuin. It will also be the venue for artistic interventions and performances. PRESENT is organised by Katrin Kamrau ( and Welmer Keesmaat (Tique).

Around this a network of exquisite antiquarians (PAST) will tempt the visitor to explore art history’s past in the atmospheric spaces of the Academy. PAST is organised by Hugo Draulans and Stephan Peleman.

Please join us for Tique Salon #10 during the 4th Antwerp Academy Art Book Fair on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 10 AM to 5 PM at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp.

During this anniversary edition of Tique Salon we’ve invited several artists and publishing houses for performances and interventions.
