  • Overview

    Opening Reception and Artist Talk, October 20 - Talk begins at 4 pm in room 111 followed by a reception in CASE from 5 - 7 pm.

    On view at the Center for Art & Social Engagement in Westby Hall from October 4 through December 21, Gaia Theory, an exhibition of Emily Erb’s collage and silk paintings. Erb embeds within the boundaries of a larger-than-life human form, navigational charts such as road, topography, and war campaign maps to represent the different facets of the human physiological system. Road maps become the nervous system, topographical maps become the circulatory system, and war maps become the lymphatic system.

    Each work in the series stands at 9.5 feet high by 4.5 feet wide which are within the same dimensions as the works in The Sister Chapel. Like The Sister Chapel, Erb’s figures are larger than life, a monument to the Greek goddess Gaia: the personification of the earth.
