Art Metropole is a not-for-profit organization focused on the distribution and contextualization of artist-initiated publication in any media, especially those formats and practices predisposed to sharing and circulation. It was founded in 1974 by the Artists’ Collective General Idea.
Publication is a social space. Through expanded conversation around artist publishing, AM aims to provide incentive for readers, ultimately creating new formats for the sharing of ideas, materials, and knowledge. For the Toronto Art Book Fair, AM has selected a series of multiples, prints, zines, and audio works that encourage participation around and through their format. AM’s booth will occupy the display, which will also host gastronomic editions, listening stations, areas for reading and resting, and more.
