A word-charmer that bends exotic vocabulary into dangerously funny poses...Droll just won’t cut it, Christina Catherine Martinez is laughter spilling in the dark.

Girls at Library

I'm an art writer and comedian in Los Angeles.

I produce and host Aesthetical Relations, an itinerant and irregular live talk show with artists and comics and video screenings and a rotating house band. AR has been featured in LA Weekly, ForYourArt, CurateLA, 5Everyday, and other arbiters of cultural cache.

I like flip-flaps, overlaps, bleeding edges, and jack-of-all-kinds-of-shit. I'm interested in the space between genres. That the aegis of poetry is vast enough for all things is my personal delusion and article of faith.
