MEET THE MAKER | Kirsten Stolle

Tuesday, September 21, 2021
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM (presentation begins at 6:00 PM)
Halsey Institute galleries and over Zoom

Join us for the next Meet the Maker featuring upcoming artist Kirsten Stolle who will exhibit at the Halsey Institute in fall 2022. Meet the Makers are quarterly get-togethers for members at the Postmodernist level and above to meet an artist and learn about their creative process within an intimate setting. Members are asked to bring “a bottle of wine and an open mind.”

We are able to host a maximum of 50 people in the galleries for this event and will also stream the tour to Zoom for those that would like to join in virtually. The limited capacity means we will need to require an RSVP to claim a spot in the galleries or receive the Zoom link and passcode. RSVP to halseyRSVP@cofc.edu to reserve a space. Not a member yet? Not a problem! Find out more about the benefits of membership here.

The College of Charleston has recently announced updated policies for on-campus events. Face masks are required by all persons on campus regardless of vaccination status. We are able to host a maximum of 50 individuals inside of the Halsey Institute’s galleries at any one time during this event.

Please note: The Halsey Institute staff and the College of Charleston are monitoring local COVID case numbers and will make updates to event policies as necessary. Make sure to check this page often for up-to-date information regarding this event.


Kirsten Stolle is a visual artist working in collage, text-based images, and installation. Her research-based practice is grounded in the investigation of agribusiness propaganda, food politics, and biotechnology. Stolle uses collage, text, and installation to examine the global influence of agrichemical companies on our food supply. She is interested in how chemical giants like Bayer-Monsanto and Dow Chemical position themselves as modern agricultural companies while actively concealing their pesticides’ decades-long toxic impact on the soil. She combines archival research with appropriated printed and digital source materials to create artworks that resurface company history and expose persistent greenwashing. By deconstructing their marketing methods, she can begin to uncover the misdirection and invite viewers to critically engage with industry propaganda.
