YOUNG CONTEMPORARIES
32nd Annual Juried Student Exhibition



Each spring, current College of Charleston students, and recent grads, are eligible to submit their work to be considered for the Young Contemporaries exhibition. This gives them an opportunity to have their work chosen by a nationally prominent juror and exhibit in a professional gallery setting. For the 2017 exhibition, visiting artist Josephine Halvorson has been chosen to select works.

Palimpsest Afghanistan


Clay Stewart

This exhibition marks the one-year anniversary of the terrorist attack on September 11th, 2001. In the aftermath, the sentiment expressed by many Americans was to bomb Afghanistan “back to the Stone Age”—a sentiment that could not have been more ironic, given the fact that the Soviets had already leveled much of the country’s infrastructure in the 1980’s. But before 9-11, most Americans had little understanding of the country of Afghanistan or its people. Since then, our country’s and the world’s attention has been focused on this forgotten corner of the globe.
