    Colin Quashie in Conversation with Frank C. Martin II

    6:30 pm-7:30 pm
    Sep-05-19
    Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art
    161 Calhoun Street, downtown Charleston, SC

    Join the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art for an artist talk with Colin Quashie in the form of a conversation with Frank C. Martin, the “Linked” exhibition essayist, and director of the I.P. Stanback Museum & Planetarium at South Carolina State University in Orangeburg, SC. Martin will interview the artist then open the floor to questions. Free admission!

    Colin Quashie creates images that comment on contemporary racial stereotypes. Combining historical relics and artifacts with icons from past and present popular culture, Quashie sharply critiques the way people of color are portrayed in modern visual culture. Using his signature caustic wit, he blends images to allow viewers to more fully explore how images of African Americans and Black culture are constructed today.

    In his latest series, called “Linked,” Quashie juxtaposes images of well-known Black figures with other representations of artifacts to comment on stereotypes as they exist today. With these works, Quashie teases out underlying stereotypes, exposing them for all to see more plainly.
