Perimeter and Gertrude partnered to present the Same Page art book fair. The event was focused on innovative independent publishers and small-scale local imprints. The fair was held at Gertrude Contemporary over the weekend of 2–3 September from 11am–5pm.
Same Page brought together a select network of imprints, publishers and distributors who share a commitment to supporting local artists, writers and thinkers. The bespoke art book fair was a community-oriented event, highlighting the practices of small presses and collective activities in contemporary art publishing.
Alongside a curated selection of stalls, Same Page featured public programs and book launches all weekend.
Food and drinks were served by our creative culinary friends at Long Prawn.
