AAA Public Programmes Curator Ingrid Chu explores the international phenomenon of the 'art book bag' in a short history of the art book bag (and the things that go in them). Using the last 15 years since AAA's inception as a guide, the exhibition surveys the popularity of the art book bag and 'the things that go in them'—AAA collection materials, art publications, magazines, clothing, accessories, and ephemera. Accompanying the exhibition is a talk on artist publications and the changing modes of knowledge production and circulation influencing recent art in Asia with Hong Kong-based artists Clara Cheung of C&G Artpartment and Sonja Ng, curator Ko Sin Tung, and Museum of Modern Art Bibliographer and New York Art Book Fair programmer David Senior.

Dear Art, What are Art Book Bags?
