When: May 29-June 6 2012
If you find Spoleto too conventional, or just want a good healthy dose of Indonesian grass puppets, Phillip Hyman’s art show Outsiders is for you. “I shake bushes and either butterflies or bees fly out,” he says of his work. If you’re afraid of the avant-garde, the experimental, and audience incorporation, Outsiders is probably not. The Meeting Space in Park Circle will host an array of spoken word poets, live painters, performance artists, punks and metalheads, shadow puppetry, acoustic music, and a Ziggy Stardust cover band — all local to Charleston. If that’s not enough for you, you might be entertained by the experimental music video competition, synced with live bands, played on a 14-foot screen. The exhibition lasts nine days, so there will be plenty of time to see it if you miss opening night.
