Sharjah Art Foundation launches Focal Point Art Book Fair 2022

The Sharjah Art Foundation (SAF) announces the program for the fifth edition of Focal Point, an annual art book fair. Sharjah’s historical district hosts the event from 25 to 27 November 2022 at Bait Obaid Al Shamsi.

Committed to expanding and experimenting with the medium of publishing, the three-day fair features a selection of printed material by artists’ presses, bookmakers, self-publishers and non-commercial cultural producers as well as artist-made products, all available for purchase. Focal Point programming includes talks, book launches, artists’ signings, workshops, and musical performances.

Winners of the 2022 Publishing Grant will also be announced during the fair, and winning publications and research projects from the previous year’s grant cycle will be launched. This year, the Foundation will award a total of 30,000 USD to multiple grantees and will also provide publishing and distribution support.
