Artist Talk with April Marten

Talk by Local Book Artist April Marten
Wednesday, April 26, 2017
Hight Architecture Library in Storrs

April Marten will be talk about her process in creating 3 of her artists' books that were recently added to the library collection (Southern Hypocrisy or Southern Hospitality, Horrible Revelation, The Next Day in America: Dawn, 11-05-08).

Marten is a socially conscious visual artist who works across multiple media including sculpture, performance art, video, collage, and book arts. She processes her observations through social engagement, research, and writing, and then distills her unique world view into an artistic, visual form. Common themes in Marten's work include the feminine dilemma, religious identity, and social inequities.

You can find out more information about the artist on her website.
