International Photobook Festival


In week 2 (March 7-11) we have a fabulous International Photobook Festival happening at Te Papa and Massey. Under the ‘exhibition’ tab you will see an exhibition of Japanese photobooks at the Engine Room. From Wednesday 7th to Sunday 11th March we have three international photobook artists doing a live performance of book making in the gallery. This may be a really great opportunity for design students to engage with some very cool contemporary book makers.

The show continues to run from 12 to 16 March
