THEBOOKSHOW aims to become a mediator between the art world and the general public through the book medium. It acts as an avenue for artists to showcase self-published art books in exhibitions as well as art festivals in hopes to bring upon renewed perspectives of the medium. We believe very much in challenging the medium - moving away from the conventional form that the book takes and exploring the vast possibilities the print medium allows. In time, it seeks to build a substantial database advocating that the book form as an art in and of itself. Our vision is to harness this non-discriminatory medium to reach new audiences and connect the arts community through exhibitions and activities centering the art book, establishing THEBOOKSHOW to be synonymous with the presentation of art books and working towards our eventual goal to build a thriving and all inclusive arts culture in Singapore and within the region.
THEBOOKSHOW is co-founded by Ang Song Nian and Leanna Teoh
