Sick Sad Summer Art Book Fair is a new book fair and artist market curated by John F. Malta and Siobhán Gallagher taking place at Cooler Gallery in Brooklyn on Sunday, July 14th, 2019 from 11 am to 7 pm. The book fair aims to bring together a range of visual artists, comic creators, and craftspeople that weave between the lines of photocopied xerox fuzz, commercial art reproduction, comic book narratives, and DIY product design. The book fair coincides with a group exhibition also curated by Malta & Gallagher featuring 40+ artists from NYC and beyond, titled A BODY AWAITS

A BODY AWAITS features a range of contemporary painters and illustrators who push the idea of the formal figure and landscape beyond the confines of the natural world and into another macrocosm. Figures embrace one another and shatter through toxic skulls that are defined as painted monuments to moldy geometry. Fluorescent soaked universes, reverent self-portraits, abstract clusters of 21st-century globs, and sordid psychedelic figures all rejoice and channel the fourth dimension: a body brought to life to exist in a frame defining its reason for being in a moment captured.
