SFU Galleries is pleased to be participating in this year's Vancouver Art Book Fair at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. VABF is an annual festival of artists' publishing featuring over 100 local and international publishers, alongside a range of programs, performances and artists' projects.

This year we will be offering a FREE publication from the Critical Reader Series with the purchase of any three in the Series. The Critical Reader Series is a discursive forum that encourages critical writing projects that run parallel to exhibition programming at SFU Galleries.

A tote bag with artwork by Charlene Vickers' will also be featured at VABF in relation to Vickers' site-specific project, Speaking with Hands and Territories, at SFU Gallery. $10
