Join us for the next virtual Meet the Maker featuring artist Jibade-Khalil Huffman who will exhibit at the Halsey Institute in spring 2021 with the exhibitionYou Are Here.
Jibade-Khalil Huffman mines images and texts, searching for latent meaning and hidden memories. Using a wide array of media including lightboxes, video, performance, photography, text, and installation, Huffman uses his work to expose power structures and racial dynamics in popular imagery. His heavily layered images beckon viewers to form connections between recognizable images and the personal pentimenti of our own existences. For You Are Here, Jibade-Khalil will create a new installation, building on the materials and themes he’s explored in recent years.
On February 4, Scott Reinhard will join us to talk about his work producing maps for the graphics desk at the New York Times. In recent years, Reinhard has used maps and graphic design to convey important stories pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic, American politics, climate change, and more. He will discuss his work making these graphics as well as his own ventures into cartography.
In conjunction with our current exhibition Larson Shindelman: Geolocation, College of Charleston faculty from the Schools of the Arts and Humanities and Social Sciences will discuss ways in which technologies have permeated the everyday from the media to politics to the arts in unprecedented and all-encompassing ways over recent decades.
Panelists include: Karyn Amira, Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science Marian Mazzone, Associate Professor, Department of Art History Ryan M. Milner, Associate Professor and Associate Chair, Department of Communication Douglas Rivet, Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science
Moderated by Mark Long, Professor, Department of Political Science

The Halsey Institute presents Geolocation by the artist duo of Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman. Using publicly-accessible geographic data from tweets, Larson Shindelman track down specific locations where Twitter users were when they posted on social media. Once there, the artists make a photograph from the location, connecting the tweet—stored on a remote server and readable around the globe—and the physical world. This body of work explores the connection between text and images, digital and analog, and private versus public.
