MODIFIED GALLERY HOURS

The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art’s public gallery hours for fall 2020 are:
Thursdays + Fridays: 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Effective September 17 – November 20
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 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.

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

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.
