New York Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1
22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City, NY 11101

At the 2018 New York Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1, we are staging an exhibition with our friends, the 8-Ball Community. To compliment the exhibition we are selling hundreds of rare zines from our inventory and incredible items from our first ever antiquarian catalog at Booth L01 on the first floor.

A History of Zines includes publications from Boo-Hooray's inventory as well as 8-Ball's zine library to present a vast and diverse grouping, spanning from 1939 to 2017. The exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Shannon Michael Cane.

A catalog accompanying the exhibition will be available for sale in an edition of 200 with all proceeds going directly to 8-Ball.

BOO-HOORAY exhibits both at home in New York City as well as internationally. We also stage collaborative exhibitions with the Hayward Gallery and Rough Trade in London, Tsutaya Daikanyama, Hysteric Glamour, and United Arrows in Tokyo, Galleri Operatingplace in Stockholm, Colette in Paris, PopMontreal in Montreal, Mishka Los Angeles, Printed Matter at both MOCA/LA and PS1/NYC, and Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, the New York Public Library, the Grolier Club, and Milk Gallery in New York.

Boo-Hooray exhibitions have included shows featuring Larry Clark, The Velvet Underground, Ray Johnson, Afrika Bambaataa, Jonas Mekas, Ed Sanders, Linder Sterling and Jon Savage, Spencer Sweeney, Houston Rap, private press vinyl, Wallace Berman, anarcho-punk group Crass, Jason Polan, Jack Smith, cult-filmmaker Ed Wood, and Situationist Times editor Jacqueline de Jong.

The exhibitions are drawn from cultural archives that Boo-Hooray excavates, organizes, and places in institutions such as Columbia University’s Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Cornell University’s Division of Rare Manuscript Collections, Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and the University of Oxford’s Bodleian Library.
