From November 15-18th, the Chicago Art Book Fair returns for its third year hosting both established and emerging small press publishers. Coinciding with the fair, the Joan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection will host a talk with the founder of Homie House Press and Chicago Art Book Fair exhibitor, Adriana Monslave, who will discuss her work, publishing, and the role research plays in her work.
Monslave, who is also an artist and bookmaker, describes Homie House Press as “a playground where fotos become books, a safe space for secret stories and an open house for honest content.” Homie House Press is a collaborative collection of artists and educators working to carve out a space in the field of art books for marginalized narratives.
