Opening Reception for Rebound: Dissections and Excavations in Book Art

Thursday, May 23, 2013
Halsey Institute

The Halsey Institute has organized a major group exhibition of new works by five mixed media artists from around the world who sculpt, scrape, bend and carve to create astonishing compositions using books as a point of departure. The exhibition will be on view at the Halsey Institute May 23 – July 6, 2013, as a featured presentation of the Spoleto Festival USA. Entitled Rebound: Dissections and Excavations in Book Art, the exhibition brings together Doug Beube, Long-Bin Chen, Brian Dettmer, Guy Laramée, and Francesca Pastine. The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art has commissioned Rebound artist, Long-Bin Chen, to create a site-specific sculptural work that will be on view in the Sanders Rotunda of the Marlene and Nathan Addlestone Library concurrent with the exhibition within the Halsey. Chen will create the work during a residency May 1 – 23.

The opening reception on Thursday May 23, from 6pm to 8pm will be open to the public and include complimentary refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres provided by ICEBOX and WHOLEFOODS. Rebound: Dissections and Excavations in Book Art is sponsored by BiblioLabs. The Friends of the Library at the College of Charleston are sponsors of Long-Bin Chen’s residency and installation. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
