The inaugural Melbourne Art Book Fair took place in 2015 and the annual event has since attracted more than 29,000 visitors, making it the most well-attended publishing event in the Asia-Pacific region. The third Melbourne Art Book Fair in 2017 will bring together international and local publishers and practitioners in a weekend of free talks, book launches, performances, and stalls featuring art, design, architecture and photography publications from around the world.
The first urbanlight zine “Mr Hoddle’s Opus” is out.
The zine is my photographic nod to all the people involved in the establishment of Melbourne’s grid of streets and lanes and is specifically dedicated to the work of Robert Hoddle.
The Hoddle Grid is a silent but significant contributor to any artistic representations of Melbourne. The Grid defines the character of the light we all make use of when creating a photograph. We all owe Robert Hoddle and all those who have maintained the spirit of his original plan for Melbourne a great deal.
