33rd Annual Juried Student Exhibition

YOUNG CONTEMPORARIES 2018

CLICK HERE FOR THE LIST OF ACCEPTED WORKS

In what has become a venerable tradition at the College of Charleston, the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art presents Young Contemporaries 2018. Now in its 33rd year, the exhibition features work by College of Charleston students juried by a nationally prominent juror. The exhibition reflects the strength and diversity of practice in the School of the Arts’ rigorous programs. Featuring a wide range of media—including paintings, sculpture, photography, and prints—the exhibition showcases the talent of the student body at the College. For 2018, Amy Yoes serves as the juror.

Concurrent with Young Contemporaries will be the Salon des Refusés exhibition, showing in the exhibition space of the Simons Center for the Arts. The works in the Salon were chosen by Studio Art faculty. The origin of the Salon des Refusés dates to Paris in 1863, when artists who had been rejected from the official Salon caused such a protest that Emperor Napoleon III ordered another exhibition held for them. Among the painters in this Salon des Refusés were Camille Pissaro, Henri Fantin-Latour, James M. Whistler, and Edouard Manet.

 

About the Juror

Amy Yoes was born in 1959 and grew up in Houston, Texas. She has lived in Chicago, San Francisco and, since 1998, in New York.

She works in a multi-faceted way, alternately employing installation, photography, video, painting, and sculpture. An interest in decorative language and architectural space permeates all of her work. She responds to formal topologies of ornament and style that have reverberated through time, informing our mutually constructed visual and cultural memory. 

Her videos have been seen in many venues, including the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC.; MassMoca, North Adams, MA; and the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio. She has held residencies at the Maison Dora Maar, Ménerbes, France; AIR, Krems, Austria; McDowell, Peterborough, NH; Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, NY; and The British School at Rome, Italy. She has been a visiting artist at many institutions, including the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, University of Las Vegas Nevada, Maryland Institute College of Art, and the Siena Art Institute. Recent projects include a site-specific animation installation at the Sullivan Galleries at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a new animation for a screening at the National Gallery of Art.
