Strict COVID-19 protocols will be in place to help keep the Halsey Institute galleries safe for all visitors!

Dis/placements: Revisitations of Home is designed to be an online exhibition, but we know that the Halsey Family has missed the galleries as much as we have. We have created a modified version of the exhibition for the galleries. Using projectors, QR codes, and large text panels, our curators organized an in-gallery experience that approximates the in-depth possibilities of the comprehensive Dis/placements website, displacements.org

In accordance with the College of Charleston’s COVID-19 precautions, all gallery visitors and Halsey Institute staff will be required to wear a cloth face covering while on the College of Charleston campus, including inside the Halsey Institute’s galleries.

The staff member at the reception desk will welcome guests from behind a Plexiglas barrier. There will be a maximum of 10 visitors inside the gallery spaces at any one time. We ask that visitors remain six feet away from others. Any exhibition information will be printed large format on the walls and available by QR code to allow for proper distancing between visitors.

Our Biblioteca reference library and the Joanna Foundation Video Cavern will remain closed until at least January 2021.

Online - RSVP to Bryan Granger at grangerbw@cofc.edu

The Halsey Institute is presenting a virtual film screening of ART/new york No. 39 – Robert Colescott: An American Original (1993).

The film’s runtime is 28 minutes.

RSVP for the film screening through email to Bryan Granger at grangerbw@cofc.edu

About the film:

This program looks at paintings by Robert Colescott as seen in a 1982 mid career exhibition at the Phyllis Kind Gallery in SOHO. In his beautiful and provocative work, Colescott addresses issues that pertain to his role as an African American in contemporary art. With irony and an acerbic sense of humor, he depicts race relations, politics, religion, social status, historical events and more. In a lengthy interview, he discusses these issues in his work. Lowery Sims, associate curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Phyllis Kind, the artist’s dealer, talk about Colescott’s controversial and masterful paintings.

About Paul Tschinkel:

Paul Tschinkel is the creator, producer and director of ART/new york. A graduate of the MFA program at Yale University, he is a painter who, in the early ’70s, turned to video as a way of making art. He was the first artist to produce a weekly program on New York’s cable system. Called “Paul Tschinkel’s Inner-Tube”, it ran from 1974 to 1984 and featured conceptual programming and events, collaborative pieces with fellow artists, exhibitions, and the Punk and No-Wave music scene of the late ’70s and early ’80s.

What makes a virtual exhibition virtual? Are successful virtual exhibitions analogues of physical exhibitions? Or are there qualities that make them entirely different mechanisms for presenting exhibitions?

In this Halsey Talks, we will discuss the characteristics that are essential to virtual exhibitions. We will look at virtual exhibitions created by the Halsey Institute and other museums, many of which out of necessity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To join the conversation, RSVP to Bryan Granger at GrangerBW@cofc.edu

ONLINE FILM SCREENING | Feathers of Fire

Tuesday, October 27, 2020
7:00 PM EST
Via Zoom

Join us for an online screening of Hamid Rahmanian’s film version of Feathers of Fire, a dazzling shadow puppet play based on the Persian epic, Shahnameh. Hamid Rahmanian is one of ten artists featured in Dis/placements: Revisitations of Home.

The vibrant graphics, derived from the visual tradition of the Middle East, are rendered as puppets, costumes, masks, scenography and digital animation, all of which come to life in a “live animation” shadow casting technique performed against a cinema-size screen.

Feathers of Fire is a cinematic shadow play for all ages. It tells the action-packed tale of Zaul and Rudabeh, two star-crossed lovers of old Persia. Zaul is raised by a mythical bird in the wild. Rudabeh is the granddaughter of the dreaded Serpent King. Their deep love for each other enables them to triumph over inconceivable odds.

To attend the screening, please RSVP to Bryan Granger at grangerbw@cofc.edu to receive instructions on how to watch online. View the trailer here.

A Q&A with designer and director Hamid Rahmanian will follow on Zoom directly after the screening.
