The Halsey Institute’s Fall 2016 artist Fahamu Pecou will be in conversation with Dr. Anthony Greene. Pecou’s work explores the state of Black existence – life and death – today. Dr. Greene is an Associate Professor with the African American Studies program and the Department of Sociology at the College of Charleston. He specializes in race-ethnic relations and cultural and ethnic identity. Pecou will also be signing copies of Visible Man, the catalogue published by the Halsey Institute for his exhibitionDO or DIE: Affect, Ritual, Resistance, organized by in collaboration with the Michael C. Carlos of Emory University at a reception at the Halsey Institute’s galleries.
The catalogue contains over 100 full-color images as well as scholarly essays by Amanda H. Hellman, Arturo Lindsay, Sean Meighoo, and Michael K. Wilson that critically examine Pecou’s work. Catalogues will be available for purchase at the event.
