Visual art: Bringing the War Home 

Wed., Oct. 15

Artist Martha Rosler first started probing the twin echo chambers of fashion and war back in the late '60s, when another unpopular and pointless conflict raged in some hot country halfway around the globe. Her cut-and-paste technique imagined napalm-fueled disasters brought into the tony world of high-end home decorating – Sears catalog photo shoots art-directed by the Vietcong. Rosler's updated series, BRINGING THE WAR HOME, currently at Emory Visual Arts Gallery, demonstrates how shockingly little has changed in four decades. Rosler leads a discussion of her work at the exhibit's closing reception Fri., Oct. 17. Free. Closing reception, 7 p.m.; Mon.-Fri., 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sat., noon-4 p.m. Emory University, 700 Peavine Creek Drive. 404-727-6315. visualarts.emory.edu.
