"Form then Content, Content then Format; Emily Martin's Approaches to
Artists' Book",

Friday April 7, 2000 beginning at 6:00 pm
At the
Center for Book Arts, 28 West 27th St., 3rd floor,
New York, NY 10001, ph.: 212-481-0295

Emily Martin, proprietor of the Naughty Dog Press, has been making
artist's books since 1978.  She received an M.F.A. in painting from the
University of Iowa in 1979. She produces limited edition sculptural
and/or moveable books using images and/or text in a variety of media.
Her books are exhibited and included in major museum collections
internationally, including the Museum of Modern Art, NYC; the Tate
Gallery, London; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. She
teaches book arts classes at the University of Iowa Center for the Book
and in workshops around the country.

Talk Description:
Emily Martin will present a slide lecture on the two separate but
complimentary approaches she uses when making her artist's books. In the
first books, a particular binding or structure suggests a certain
content. For other books, the content comes first and the search begins
for an appropriate structure. She come to the book arts from a painting
background and has been working with narrative images for more than 20
years. For the last 10 years she has been moving back and forth from
painting to sculpture to artist's books to print making to writing.
Images begun in one format will often appear, modified, in another
format. In the book structures, the content whether visual or text or
both, and the format are always working in tandem.
