[BKARTS] CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS PUBLICATION PARTY



THE CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS PUBLICATION PARTY
FOR EMILY MARTIN'S MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE

New York, NY - The Center celebrates the debut of its newest publication,
Mutually Exclusive, an artist's book co-published with artist Emily Martin,

the 2002 Sally R. Bishop Artist in Residence at the Center. A publication
party will be held on Thursday, February 27th, 6 - 8 pm. The event is free
and open to the public.

Emily Martin, proprietor of the Naughty Dog Press, produces limited edition

sculptural and/or moveable books in a variety of media. Her books are

Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Martin is an adjunct professor at the University of Iowa's Center for the

About Mutually Exclusive:

Mutually Exclusive is a letterpress printed set of 5 magic wallets,
provoked
by the events of 9/11/01, which address the cacophony of news reports,
emotions, analysis and opinions (expert and otherwise) that follow in the
wake of any major news event. The righteous indignation and reciprocal
intolerance whitewashed by ideals from religion to political correctness
raise the question of personal belief. Using the magic wallet format, the
book panels flip back and forth from two opposing statements, which reflect

the slipperiness of forging a personal philosophy. Each of the texts has
three layers, the pairs of basic statements in large type, an underlying
stream-of-consciousness narration in small type and the 10 sets of words
from the Pythagorean table of opposites printed in transparent ink. The
wallets are contained in a Japanese box wrapper with bone clasps made by
Rosa Guimaraes. Printed with the assistance of interns Paula Naughton and
Nancy Campbell during the 2002 Sally R. Bishop artist's residency at the
Center for Book Arts, New York, NY.
