Slow Art Day 2019

Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art
161 Calhoun Street, Charleston, SC

Join the Halsey Institute staff and tour guides for the international celebration of “slow looking” and participate in guided in-depth conversations about a handful of the artworks in Young Contemporaries 2019.

_______________

Slow Art Day was started in order to invite novices – and experts – to experience the power of looking at art slowly.

It’s a very simple event. Visit your local museum (or gallery, public artwork, etc.) and view a small number of works of art for 5 to 10 minutes each. Then everyone meets to discuss their experience. And all this happens the same day around the world.

The result? Participants say they get “inspired, not tired” and plan to return to that museum or gallery again and again (our not-so-secret agenda is to help more people experience the excitement of art and become regular patrons of their local museums).

“Writers of the world, if you’ve got a story, I want to hear it. I promise it will follow me to my last breath.”—Pat Conroy

Although beloved writer Pat Conroy (1945-2016) served as a classroom educator for little more than three years, he remained a teacher and mentor to his fellow writers throughout his lifetime. In this special presentation, see Conroy in action as a teacher through representative remembrances of him excerpted from essays by the 67 contributors to the anthology Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy. Join Pat Conroy Literary Center executive director and volume co-editor Jonathan Haupt for a behind-the-book discussion of Our Prince of Scribes and of the formative role a meeting with Archibald Rutledge had on 16-year-old Pat Conroy, leading him to become the lifelong mentor encountered in the essay collection. A book signing will follow the presentation; all sales of Our Prince of Scribes benefit the educational mission of the nonprofit Conroy Center.

Praise for Our Prince of Scribes:
“A testament to his mentorship and passion for educating others, the book includes essays from more than sixty writers, including Rick Bragg, Nikky Finney, Mary Alice Monroe, Ron Rash, and Sallie Ann Robinson, one of Conroy’s former students on Daufuskie Island. It’s a moving tribute to the legacy of one of the South’s brightest lights.”–Garden & Gun’s Talk of the South

About our presenter:
Jonathan Haupt is the executive director of the Pat Conroy Literary Center, the founding director of the annual Pat Conroy Literary Festival, and the former director of the University of South Carolina Press. He serves on the boards of the South Carolina Academy of Authors and the Friends of South Carolina Libraries and on the advisory board of the South Carolina Humanities and the affiliates steering committee of the American Writers Museum. Haupt’s book reviews and author interviews have appeared in the Charleston Post and Courier; Lowcountry Weekly; Fall Lines; Shrimp, Collards & Grits magazine; and the Conroy Center’s Porch Talk blog.

In 1968, amidst new technologies like computers and video being used in art, theorist Jack Burnham declared the art of that time “is fundamentally concerned with the implementation of the art impulse in an advanced technological society.”

Today, over half a century later, the same phrase could be uttered with a minor alteration: The art of today is fundamentally concerned with the implementation of the art impulse in a heavily networked society—one with the internet.

How does the (omni)presence of the internet influence the way art is made today? Can artists still create work in the same way that they did before the internet?

This Halsey Talks discussion will examine these questions of how art has shifted since the internet has become a large part of daily living. We will look at examples of several artists working today in order to explore art after the internet.

Double Take: The Art of Elizabeth King andThe Original Richard McMahan

The Halsey Institute is proud to present a double feature of films by director Olympia Stone. This film screening is free to attend and open to the public. Stone will hold a Q&A after the film screenings.

Olympia Stone’s latest documentary, “Double Take: The Art of Elizabeth King” (61 minutes), examines the work of Richmond, Va.-based artist Elizabeth King. This film will be preceded by Stone’s short documentary “The Original Richard McMahan” (20 minutes), a profile of the artist Richard McMahan, who was featured at the Halsey Institute in the 2008 exhibition MINIMUSEUM.

“Double Take: The Art of Elizabeth King” engages the viewer in the work of sculptor and stop-action filmmaker Elizabeth King, who embarks on each new project by posing a single question to herself: “Can this physically be done?” Tracing King’s creative flow, curiosity, and obsessive drive to solve the inevitable series of artistic and technical problems that arise in creating her disconcerting sculptures and animations, this documentary film explores King’s passion about the mind/body riddle, the science of emotion, the human/machine interface, and those things a robot will never be able to do. From studio to exhibition, and in conversations with fellow artists, curators, and critics, the film asks what looking at and seeing one another means in an increasingly mediated world.

See the trailer for “Double Take” here: https://vimeo.com/232393945


The multitalented outsider artist Richard McMahan is on a quest to painstakingly re-create thousands of famous and not-so-famous paintings and artifacts in miniature. From well-loved Picasso and Frida Kahlo paintings to more obscure intricate Maori canoes, McMahan has mastered dozens of genres over thirty years of creating, and he’s made most of the works on a cluttered kitchen countertop using recycled materials. McMahan is also the curator of a mini-museum with a collection that surveys the scope of humanity’s visual record.
