Lowcountry5/14/20217/16/202111:00:00 AMExhibition | Jibade-Khalil Huffman: You Are HereJibade-Khalil Huffman mines images and texts, searching for latent meaning and hidden memories. Using a wide array of media including lightboxes, video, performance, photography, text, and installation, Huffman uses his work to expose power structures and racial dynamics in popular imagery. His heavily layered images beckon viewers to form connections between recognizable images and the personal pentimenti of our own existences. For You Are Here, Jibade-Khalil will create a new installation, building on the materials and themes he’s explored in recent years.Free admission! We're open 11 AM - 4 PM Monday through Friday and until 7 PM on Thursdays.https://halsey.cofc.edu/main-exhibitions/youarehere/Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of CharlestonDowntown Charlestonart, photography, art history, pop culture, race, visibility, black experience
Lowcountry5/14/20217/16/202111:00:00 AMExhibition | Dan Estabrook: WunderkammerThe work of Dan Estabrook oscillates between image and object and back again. Using antiquated forms of photography, such as salt prints and tintypes, Estabrook examines the objecthood of photography and its ability to represent the truth. He often combines multiple tintypes or adds metal to his images, further commenting on photography’s connection to reality. His sculptural works become recreations of his photos, further blurring the line between image and object. Interested in the studio as a site for fabrication, Estabrook’s sleight of hand in creating still life tableaus asks viewers to reconsider why things appear as they seem.Free admission! We're open 11 AM - 4 PM Monday through Saturday and until 7 PM on Thursdays.https://halsey.cofc.edu/main-exhibitions/wunderkammer/Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of CharlestonDowntown Charlestonart, photography, art history
