Emily Larned artist lecture

Thursday, January 14, 2010 @ 7pm

Emily Larned is an artist, writer, designer, and letterpress printer who has been self-publishing for 17 years. Red Charming, established 1999, is her production label. The name is an imaginary bad translation possibly meaning that which is light and heavy at the same time.

Emily received her MFA in Graphic Design from Yale School of Art in 2008. Also in 2008, together with the excellent Bridget Elmer, she co-founded Impractical Labor in Service of the Speculative Arts (ILSSA), a membership organization for those who make experimental or conceptual work with obsolete technology.

From 2001-2009 Emily was an active board member of Booklyn, a not-for-profit artist alliance based in Brooklyn, NY. She served as Vice President for five years and President for one.

Emily’s work is held by over sixty public collections, including the Smithsonian, the Tate, & the Getty, and it has been exhibited around the world. She has taught and lectured widely, and in 2009 was appointed Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at the University of Bridgeport. Her studio is in the former American Fabrics factory in the east side of that city. She, her husband, and their cat are poised to move their home to magical Lordship, Connecticut in early 2010.
