VOLUME 1 has been a long time coming! After New York, Toronto and Vancouver, Montreal will finally have its own Art Book Fair and conference. VOLUME 1 will present works and programming in both English and French, including artists and publishers from all over Canada, the US and elsewhere. Conference details will be posted here shortly– in the meantime, you can consult the preliminary list of exhibitors here.
VOLUME 1 MTL is organized by ARCMTL, a non-profit organization that both promotes and preserves the work of independent artists. It has hosted the huge Expozine small press fair annually since 2002, and has been a co-organizer of the Montreal Printed Arts Festival and the Grande Print Art Fair since 2016. It also has operated the Distroboto network of art-vending machines since 2001.
