    Sep-05-18

    54 St. Philip Street, Charleston, SC 29403

    54 St. Philip Street, Charleston, SC 29403

    Join the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art for a free film screening. This film features a rare interview with painter Jean-Michel Basquiat, conducted in 1981 in his studio on Crosby Street in SOHO. Basquiat, an internationally renowned artist as well as enfant terrible of the 1980s art scene, died tragically in 1988 at the age of twenty-seven. Both during his brief life and since his untimely death, numerous stories and legends that chronicle his quick rise to art world stardom have arisen.

    In this “ART/new york” installment, the twenty-one-year-old Basquiat, already a well-known art figure is interviewed by art historian and curator Marc H. Miller. The artist’s fondness for high jinks as well as his exuberant spirit are captured as he describes his working process and comments upon his art-world persona.

    Q&A with director Paul Tschinkel to follow. Admission to the film is free and all are welcome to attend.

  • The Legacy of Slavery: Five Movements by Kwame Nimako
    6:00 pm-9:00 pm
    Sep-24-18

    Using the concepts of ‘parallel lives’ and ‘intertwined belongings’ as backdrop, Dr. Kwame Nimako will demonstrate in this lecture that the legacy of Atlantic slavery has given rise to five distinctively racialized movements on the subject of slavery. The five movements in question are: remembrance and commemorations, reparations, anniversaries, museums, and the movement to combat so-called ‘modern’ slavery. At the forefront of the demands for remembrance/commemoration, anniversary, and reparation is Black agency and activism; the museums and ‘modern’ slavery initiatives are predominantly white Euro-American. Reception to follow.

  • Policing Charleston During the Era of Slavery, 1670-1865 by Nic Butler
    6:00 pm-9:00 pm
    Sep-25-18

    In a society once ruled by a white minority, the primary focus of law enforcement in early Charleston was to surveil and intimidate the enslaved Black minority. Traditional policing practices, rooted in medieval English law and based on a shared community responsibility, were modified locally to address the New World circumstances created by the practice of race-based slavery. Join Dr. Nic Butler, historian at Charleston County Public Library, for a survey of early policing practices in both urban and rural Charleston, and how the destructive legacy of such practices cast a shadow over law enforcement well into the twentieth century.

    The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to present the exhibition “The Image Hunter: On the Trail of John James Audubon,” featuring new work by the Italian artist Hitnes. The exhibition and its related programming have been developed as a special research initiative by the Halsey Institute to honor the importance of Charleston to Audubon’s legacy.

    John James Audubon spent the early decades of the nineteenth century tracking birds and drawing them with the goal of creating a compendium of all of the birds in the United States. Charleston played an important role in Audubon’s work as he kept a studio here in the home of his friend and fellow naturalist John Bachman. Audubon searched for specimens on the Sea Islands off of Charleston’s coast, and he even included the city’s distinctive skyline from the 1830s—replete with church steeples—in his drawing of the long-billed curlew.

    Nearly two hundred years later, the Italian painter and muralist Hitnes embarked on a twenty-city road trip to retrace and rediscover the America that Audubon traversed in the making of his opus “The Birds of America” (1827–39). Traveling along Audubon’s exploratory routes, Hitnes sketched and painted what he saw, creating an updated visual documentation of the birds Audubon painted. This body of work, along with objects and ephemera collected along the journey, will be on view at the Halsey Institute beginning in August 2018. The exhibition follows Hitnes’s residencies in Charleston at the Halsey Institute in the summers of 2017 and 2018.
