An Exhibition of Artist Books
about Cancer and the Creative Spirit.

Curator: Alice Simpson

THE DONNELL LIBRARY CENTER
WEST WALL ~ MAIN FLOOR
20 West 53rd Street
New York, New York 10019

Artists have always found expression in
S E L F   E X A M I N A T I O N
and it is appropriate that
The New York Public Library's
 Donnell Library Center
celebrates creativity at the start of

CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Curator's Statement:
This exhibition began as a tribute to Martha A Hall.
We first met at Haystack Mountain School in 1997.
Martha was first diagnosed with cancer in 1989 and
found an eloquent voice in the Artist Books she’s
created.
The unique books in this exhibition, and those she
continues to make are her personal voice:
speaking out, sharing, educating and healing.
Martha's one-of-a-kind Artist Books, inspired by her
poetry, photographs, prints, hand made papers and
collages speak in a compelling way of her own
self-examined life and spirit.

I could not put this exhibition together without
including the works of Susan Allen, Mindy Belloff,
Susan Rotolo, Lise Poirier, and Stephanie Zack, and
the courageous poetry of Eva Baer-Schenkein.
Their profoundly personal and poignant artworks
reflect
the healing powers of creative expression.

--Alice Simpson, Curator
