HALFTONE is an initiative by PhotoIreland,
HALFTONE Print Fair returns to Dublin with its celebration of the printed matter and a special focus on books!
The annual HALFTONE Print Fair returns for its sixth edition to The Library Project this November. The fair is an initiative of PhotoIreland, hosted every year at The Library Project, bringing together artists working in disciplines whose output manifests in printed form, and to showcase the best photographic works. In addition to the hundreds of prints visitors will discover, this year HALFTONE proposes events dedicated to that passion for accumulating more books than one can read, what the Japanese call Tsundoku.
The fair opens on Thursday 29th October during regular opening hours, and runs until the 22nd November, with special events from the 5th November focusing on another important printed matter: the book.
Artists are selected through invitation and an open call aimed at fine art printers, illustrators, designers, photographers and creatives alike, to be displayed saloon-style and sold at the Temple Bar venue The Library Project. The fair format aims to motivate collecting and to excite artworks sales, supporting the artists’ practice. Each year sees a high number of private and corporate sales, as well as sales to public collections.
