Emily Hermant exhibition in Chicago

On Saturday October 3, the two-person exhibition Hermant/Butler opens at the Franklin in Chicago, featuring the work of Assistant Professor of Sculpture Emily Hermant and Ben Butler.

In Emily Hermant’s work, a recurring theme is the utilization of slow, hand-making processes to generate ways of representing the rapid movement and proliferation of digital information and communication in contemporary life. For this duo exhibition with Ben Butler at The Franklin, Hermant has created Walled Garden, an installation of hand-rendered wallpaper panels on the interior of the Franklin’s outdoor structure, in which orchestrated ensembles of individually drawn dashes fluctuate in vibrant, toxic color combinations—a distillation of our experience of the hum and blur of rapidly changing technological information.
