Recreo Valencia Art Book Fair 3rd edition

21, 22 and 23 October 2022

Free entry until filled to capacity

Open Call open until July 15.

Friday October 21, 2022 will see the start of the third edition of the Recreo Valencia Art Book Fair with the collaboration of the IVAM Centre Julio González, which has become the new location for the fair.

Almost sixty local, national and international exhibitors will make up the select presence of publishers, groups, magazines, fairs, universities and self-published projects that will make this edition an unforgettable event.

The fair aims to establish a space for exchange, production and representation, taking part in Valencia’s cultural revitalization and supporting the development of an international network of creative agents. Recreo seeks to create an open and collaborative space which enables emerging and established creators in the field of publications and visual arts to be represented and seen.

In addition to the vast array of participants, the fair is complemented by a parallel program of activities, a series of conferences, presentations, exhibitions and workshops that will be announced at the beginning of September. After the success of the first two editions, a wide variety of independent publishers and artists will come together from October 21 to 23 at Recreo, an essential date for your diary if you love books and publishing.

Recreo is an initiative by Handshake (Rubén Montesinos and Jaime Sebastián) and Santanasantana (Aythami Castellano and Iván Santana). Organizers are hoping to offer a young alternative in the context of book fairs and printed art, and cover the wide spectrum that exists in the landscape of printed publications, also attracting international talent at the same time.
