Programming Partnership!
Akin is pleased to be hosting two events as a part of Toronto Art Book Week- a series of city-wide events that parallel the Toronto Art Book Fair. Art book week will feature book launches, performances, talks, pop-up exhibitions, and screenings throughout Toronto. The goal of art book week is to bring attention to new and exciting artist’s book projects as well as increase the visibility of Toronto’s art publishing community.
