Rimal books was proud to be invited once again by the Sharjah Art Foundation for its FOCAL POINT event. It is the region’s largest and most diverse art book fair. Returning for its fourth edition, the fair brings together printed matter from the MEASA (Middle East, Africa, South Asia) region, including artist books, academic volumes and journals, zines and other non-traditional and experimental publications from more than 120 publishers, magazines, artists, editors, authors and makers from the UAE and MEASA region. FOCAL POINT took place from 9 to 11 December 2021 in Sharjah Art Foundation’s Bait Obaid Al Shamsi, Arts Square.
For the first time this year, FOCAL POINT featured a day-long talks programme at the iconic Flying Saucer about new books released from the Foundation, The Africa Institute and publications supported and made possible by the FOCAL POINT Publishing Grant. The event brought together publishers, distributors, art professionals, knowledge producers, graphic designers, writers, journalists and editors to learn about these publications.
FOCAL POINT’s public programme extended throughout the art book fair with children and community workshops, music events and more.
A number of major publications and artist monographs were launched during FOCAL POINT 2021.
We would like to once again thank SAF and Focal Point for including Rimal in this year's fair.
