OPENING RECEPTION | Roberto Diago: La Historia Recordada

Friday, January 19, 2018
6:30-8:00PM
Halsey Institute Galleries

Join us for the Opening Reception of Roberto Diago: La Historia Recordada on Friday, January 19, 6:30-8:00PM at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. Kick off our 2018 programming with us and enjoy food and refreshments, the latter provided by ICE BOX.


The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston is planning an exhibition featuring Cuban multi-disciplinary artist Roberto Diago. Born in 1971 in Havana, Diago’s work is often a direct criticism of racism in Cuba and explores the roots and role of slavery in Cuban history and culture. Diago works and lives in Havana, and utilizes a variety of strategies for examining the aftereffects of slavery in the 21st century.

This exhibition will be part of a much larger college-wide interdisciplinary project with a focus on Cuba entitled “Cuba en el Horizonte” that will include special topics courses, lectures, and performances across departments of the College of Charleston. The Halsey Institute’s exhibition will be the focal point for this semester-long engagement with Cuban culture, politics, history, economics, and its potential future.

GROUNDHOG DAY 6

Saturday, February 3, 2018
8:00PM
Charleston Music Hall
37 John Street

The Charleston Music Hall and The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art are thrilled to team up once again for the sixth installment of The Groundhog Day Concert, February 3rd at 8pm.

We all know Groundhog Day as the day in which the sleepy groundhog rises out of his hole, looks at his shadow, and thus decides if winter is almost over. Little did you know that Groundhog Day is also the un-official day for music celebration in Charleston, SC. Due to scheduling, we have to celebrate Groundhog Day one day late this year, but we shall celebrate with the fervor of 1,000 suns to keep the Groundhog from burrowing back into his hole thus promising an early Spring! Musical Director Bill Carson will lead an amazing ensemble of musicians in a night of musical magic, fantasy, lore, and craftsmanship.  

For tickets, visit the Charleston Music Hall website.
