ARTIST TALK | Elizabeth Bick
Saturday, January 14, 2023
Halsey Institute galleries
Join us for an artist talk featuring Elizabeth Bick on the occasion of Bick’s exhibition Contrapposto at the Halsey Institute. The conversation will take place in the galleries and it is free and open to the public.
Elizabeth Bick is a photographer influenced by her training in classical and modern dance. The Halsey Institute will present ongoing bodies of work by Bick. Work made in New York City and Rome reflects on the rhythms, performances, and nuances that unfold in public space. Bick’s photographic practice includes a prolonged gaze in a specific place—a street corner, the Pantheon—where she can observe dramatic movement and light and shadow as they become a spectacle through her lens. Pedestrians are choreographed dancers and sidewalks are stages in Bick’s rumination on the presentation of self. As of fall 2021, Bick is the new Area Head of Photography at the College of Charleston School of the Arts.
