    Halsey Talks: Sound Art

    6:30 pm-7:30 pm
    Sep-17-19
    Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art
    161 Calhoun Street, Charleston, SC 29401

    While museums and galleries typically deal with the visual, artists have experimented with sound in recent decades. Bringing new forms of art into these spaces, these artists shape how we experience art and our surroundings. Sound has been an important medium for investigations in art, ranging from performances by John Cage to installations by Susan Philipsz. In this Halsey Talks, we will explore whether sound art fits in traditional gallery spaces.
