THE CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS PRESENTS
A LECTURE BY ARTIST MIRIAM SCHAER

The Center for Book Arts presents its 2003
Ted Cronin Artist's Book Lecture
Miriam Schaer
speaking on Personal Adornment: Texts, Totems and Wearable Books
Ms. Schaer will be introduced by Gérard Charrière.
The event is free to CBA Members,
non-members are asked to make a $5 suggested donation.

Miriam Schaer is a multimedia book artist whose works often use
garments-particularly girdles, bustiers, brassieres, aprons, childrens'
clothing-as a means of containment. The clothing is stiffened and shaped
into embellished enclosures housing unique books and other objects
exploring
feminine, social and spiritual issues.

Since 1993, Ms. Schaer has exhibited extensively in solo and group
exhibitions, and her work has been cited in numerous articles and reviews.
She frequently teaches, leads workshops and lectures. In 2001, a grant from

the Puffin Foundation supported her installation, Solitary Confinements: A
Family Portrait, currently on view in the Fiber Optics exhibition at the
Brooklyn College Gallery.

Ms. Schaer's work has also been featured in the Mary H. Dana Women Artists
Series at Mabel Smith Douglass Library in Rutgers University, New
Brunswick,
N.J.- the longest-running exhibition series showcasing women artists in the

United States. Her work will also be exhibited this Summer in Corporal
Identity: Body Language at the Ninth Frankfurt Triennial at Museum Für
Angewandte Kunst in Germany, in conjunction with Museum of Applied Arts and

Design, New York, N.Y.
