EXIT/ALIVE
The Art of Anthony Dominguez


Ahead of the Wrecking Ball
Ronald Ramsey and the Preservation of Charleston

The Halsey Institute kicks of 2017 with a pair of exhibitions featuring the work of Anthony Dominguez and Ronald Ramsey. Anthony Dominguez was a philosophically uncompromising, intentionally homeless artist, an idiosyncratic figure on the margins of society and the art world, and a prolific creator who produced a staggering amount of work before his untimely death in 2014.  Ronald Ramsey has focused on meticulously documenting historical buildings—particularly those slated for demolition—in his native Charleston. This exhibition focuses on his unrelenting efforts to chronicle the very buildings that give his city its historic renown.
