The Robot Next Door

Christine Blue Lamb Toubeau

Friday, September 24 - Thursday, October 28

Central Gallery   

Toubeau's paintings take us in to a world where the future is now. Her compositions depict humans and robots interacting in ways and places which may be simultaneously startlingly odd and yet eerily familiar.

In her undergrad illustration and design work at Massachusetts College of Art and throughout her more recent explorations in the MFA Program at Umass Amherst, Toubeau developed work investigating the global economy's effect on human labor under exploitive conditions. This path fed her fascination with robots. Toubea's position is that robotics are highly agreed upon to be the next world scale work force which will most likely replace most of third world human laborers. This led her to visually describe our interaction with machines and cyborgs.

This exhibition is part of Central Gallery's T.E.A.C.H. Program (Teachers Exhibiting At Central and Hampden).
