ARTIST TALK | Jibade-Khalil Huffman
Tuesday, May 25, 2021
Online at halsey.cofc.edu/live
Join us for an artist talk with Jibade-Khalil Huffman on his exhibition You Are Here. Huffman will join Katie Hirsch in conversation about his newest show at the Halsey Institute. This event will take place virtually, and it is free and open to the public.
Jibade-Khalil Huffman is a collector of visual culture, layering images familiar and unknown to build new meaning. Using unrelenting movement, Huffman’s work draws on all senses, utilizing video, audio, text, and the ultimate tool: the viewer’s own experience. In his new work featured at the Halsey Institute, Huffman considers the concepts of reality and embodiment. This is explored through visual elements we would expect to find in a video game, which typically rely on first or third person perspectives, while Huffman seeks to explore the second person. The concept of embodiment renders the human body both subject and object, depending on the perspective employed. You Are Here asks us to question the nature of our own realities and the modes through which we understand them.
