CULT CLASSIC @ PRINTED MATTER LAABF
Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair (LAABF) made its return to Los Angeles at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA. For the first time, Cult Classic tabled the fair alongside a lineup of publishing peers. Cult also hosted the opening party for the fair at the Ace Hotel with a stacked lineup of DJs and projected visuals from multimedia artist Billie Ocean.
With this being the fair's return to Los Angeles there was a sense of excitement amongst vendors and attendees. Fans of the magazine old and new stopped by the table, shopping the Cult Classic archive as well as a specialty tote that became a coveted offering for fair-goers.
