An illustrated talk on Rosemary Mayer’s varied involvement in the book form with Marie Warsh, editor of Temporary Monuments, The Work of Rosemary Mayer, 1977-1982, published by Soberscove Press in 2018. Focusing on installation and performance work featured in the new publication, Warsh discusses how Mayer’s artist books and writings were a way to anchor and share these ephemeral projects, and an outgrowth of her deep involvement in book-making and exploration of the relationship between text and image.
