Under the Leaf #2 Art Book Fair


Under the Leaf #2 Art Book Fair

12-18pm  21–22.10.2023

Under the Leaf Art Book Fair hosts international artists and publishers during a week-end in Helsinki, featuring a wide variety of works—from zines and other printed matter, to artist books and contemporary art publications. We’re thrilled to present this year’s edition of the fair, which will allow for new kinds of exploration and connection throughout the artist publishing community from around the world!

The entrance and program of the fair is free.

The program will consist of commissioned printing-publishing installations, international guests, live music, readings, food art and many more!
