📣Announcement from Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art📣

We hope this post finds you as well as can be expected in these uncertain and ever-changing times. Our staff are all hoping for your continued good health as we move through this pandemic together. We sincerely appreciate your dedication to our organization and are eager to return the favor.

We are writing today with a bit of news. Out of an abundance of caution during this crisis, the Halsey Institute has decided to postpone our exhibitions planned for May 15 - July 18 of this year. Dan Estabrook: Wunderkammer and Larson Shindelman: Geolocation will instead take place January - March of 2021.

This decision by the Halsey Institute team takes into account the regulations from the College of Charleston, recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, the cancellation of both Piccolo Spoleto Festival and Spoleto Festival USA, and the health and safety of our visitors, interns, volunteers, advisory board, and staff. Additionally, we recognize that our exhibitions are never solely about the physical work on the gallery walls. Using the artwork on display, we strive to create well-rounded public programming for general audiences, tourists, members, and their families in an effort to fulfill our mission to create meaningful interactions between adventurous artists and diverse communities within a context that emphasizes the historical, social, and cultural importance of the art of our time.

Find out more about the exhibitions here: bit.ly/HICAexhibitions

While we are saddened by our dark galleries, the well-being of our audiences and stakeholders is of the utmost importance. Instead of seeing you all in-person for gallery hours and our engaging public programs, we hope to interact virtually over the summer.

Violin professor Lee-Chin Siow performs in a virtual orchestra – find her at the 1:00-minute mark.

"Like so many of you, who are practicing social distancing and subsequently may be feeling somewhat isolated and sad with the current state of affairs, I have been wondering what I can do to bring a little joy to this very difficult time in all our lives. If each and everyone of us do our own part, extraordinary things can be achieved. I am sure you will agree that the collective voices in this recording is so much more powerful than an individual line." - Lee-Chin Siow

Now in its 35th year, the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art and the College of Charleston Studio Art Department are proud to present Young Contemporaries 2020 and the Salon des Refusés!
.
The annual Young Contemporaries exhibition is a celebration of talented artists at the College of Charleston. With works selected by a nationally renowned juror, the exhibition reflects the strength and diversity of practice in the School of the Arts’ rigorous programs. Featuring a wide range of media, including paintings, sculpture, photography, and prints, the exhibition showcases the efforts of the student body at the College. Painter Melanie Daniel is the juror for Young Contemporaries 2020.
.
Concurrent with Young Contemporaries is the Salon des Refusés exhibition. The works in the Salon were chosen by Studio Art faculty from those released from the Young Contemporaries selections. The origin of the Salon des Refusés dates to Paris in 1863, when artists who had been rejected from the official Salon caused such a protest that Emperor Napoleon III ordered another exhibition held for them. Among the painters in the original Salon des Refusés were Camille Pissaro, Henri Fantin-Latour, James M. Whistler, and Edouard Manet.
.
The opening reception and awards ceremony for Young Contemporaries 2020 and the Salon des Refusés will take place online, in the Halsey Institute's Instagram Stories at @halsey_institute
