When: Sat., May 18, 2 p.m. 2019
Join the Halsey Institute to hear from exhibiting artist Jennifer Wen Ma about her newly opened site-specific installation, Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light. Cry Joy Park is an investigation into the construct of a utopia, inspired by the history of Charleston: a cultural and artistic capital of the American South, and an exemplar of its opulence and beauty. This installation aims to present both an alluring, gorgeous and otherworldly garden, and its darker counterpart. The worlds created by the exhibition are a juxtaposition of utopia and dystopia and are presented via an immersive multisensory experience.
Price: Free admission
