Artist Emily Martin chosen for the inaugural Coffey Residency in Book Arts
Book artist Emily Martin has been selected as the visiting artist for the Coffey Residency in Book Arts at the George A. Smathers Libraries. Martin is a faculty member of the University of Iowa Center of the Book and has produced over 35 artists books under her imprint, Naughty Dog Press. Martin’s books are included in public and private collections throughout the United States and internationally, including MOCA Chicago, The Tate Britain, The Victoria and Albert Museum and the Library of Congress. Her most recent publication is Desdemona In Her Own Words.
The Coffey Residency is a newly established opportunity for a selected artist to access the Special and Area Studies Collections (SASC) at University of Florida Smathers Libraries as the impetus for the creation of a letterpress printed, editioned artists’ book. Each year, a topic of interdisciplinary research will be selected by curators of the SASC. For the inaugural year, the theme of the artist’s book will be inspired by the university’s unique and abundant Florida Citrus Label Collection. During the six-week summer residency, the artist will interact with librarians, curators, faculty and students across the university. Production of the project will involve conference, consultation and technical assistance from Ellen Knudson, Associate in Book Arts. The project will be produced using the letterpress and book arts facilities and equipment in the University of Florida School of Art & Art History. The residency takes place from June 29 – August 7, 2015.
