    Inland Rice Fields Traveling Trunk is an educational tool that includes replica artifacts and historical items relating to 18th century inland rice fields of the Lowcountry.

  • Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South
    11:00 am-4:00 pm
    Mar-01-19-Jul-13-19

    161 Calhoun Street, Charleston, SC

    161 Calhoun Street, Charleston, SC

    Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South is an unprecedented photography exhibition co-curated by Mark Sloan, director and chief curator of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, and Mark Long, professor of political science, both of whom are on the faculty of the College of Charleston, in South Carolina.

    Southbound embraces the conundrum of its name. To be southbound is to journey to a place in flux, radically transformed over recent decades, yet also to the place where the past resonates most insistently in the United States. To be southbound is also to confront the weight of preconceived notions about this place, thick with stereotypes, encoded in the artistic, literary, and media records. Southbound engages with and unsettles assumed narratives about this contested region by providing fresh perspectives for understanding the complex admixture of history, geography, and culture that constitutes today’s New South.

    Southbound will comprise fifty-six photographers’ visions of the South over the first decades of the twenty-first century. Accordingly, it offers a composite image of the region. The photographs echo stories told about the South as a bastion of tradition, as a region remade through Americanization and globalization, and as a land full of surprising realities. The project’s purpose is to investigate senses of place in the South that congeal, however fleetingly, in the spaces between the photographers’ looking, their images, and our own preexisting ideas about the region.

    Recognizing the complexity of understanding any place, let alone one as charged as the American South, the curators’ approach is transdisciplinary. The photographs will be complemented by a commissioned video, an interactive digital mapping environment, an extensive stand-alone website, and a comprehensive exhibition catalogue. This publication will draw on expertise from disciplines in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.

    The history of the American South is among the most storied of any region in the world. As a result of the vitality of its culture and the diversity of its inhabitants—to say nothing about the salience of photography in the U.S.—the region has also come to be among the most photographed. Through the exhibition, video, remappings, website, and catalogue—separately and in tandem—the Southbound project charts new courses to expanded imaginings for the twenty-first century South.

    Southbound is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation. The exhibition will debut simultaneously at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art and the City Gallery at Waterfront Park.

    54 St. Philip Street, Charleston, SC 29401

    In what has become a venerable tradition at the College of Charleston, the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art is excited to present Young Contemporaries 2019!

    Now in its 34th year, the exhibition features work by College of Charleston students selected 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.


    The juror for Young Contemporaries 2019 is Dan Estabrook.


    Dan Estabrook was born and raised in Boston, where he studied art at city schools and the Museum of Fine Arts. He discovered photography in his teens through the underground magazines of the punk-rock and skateboarding cultures of the 1980’s. As an undergraduate at Harvard he began studying alternative photographic processes with Christopher James. In 1993, after receiving an MFA from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Dan continued working and teaching in Illinois, Boston, and Florida, eventually settling in Brooklyn, New York.

    Dan has continued to make contemporary art using the photographic techniques and processes of the nineteenth century, with forays into sculpture, painting, drawing and other works on paper. He has exhibited widely and has received several awards, including an Artist’s Fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts in 1994. A documentary on Dan and his work was produced in 2009 for Anthropy Arts’ Photographers Series. He is represented by the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago.

    Each time it rains, water flows as runoff across man-made features, including rooftops, driveways and sidewalks. It eventually drains into downstream creeks, streams and rivers. Clemson Extension will teach participants how to conserve and use this runoff to support healthy habitats in the home landscape and protect clean water in the community. Participants will learn about rain gardens, rainwater harvesting, native plant gardens and vegetative buffers.
