'Over There and Here is Me and Me' & 'Linked'

When: Mondays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Continues through Dec. 7

The Halsey opens the fall season with a bang, introducing two exhibitions at an opening reception on Fri. Aug. 23. Katrina Andry’s Over There and Here is Me and Me “probes the power structures of race-based stereotypes that engender gentrification.” She uses printmaking and installation to create visceral images; this exhibition will provide a springboard for community-wide conversations on gentrification, especially in the face of rapidly gorwing areas of Charleston. Andry creates a new body of prints for this exhibition, as well as a new wallpaper installation. Like Andry, Colin Quashie has created works that comment on contemporary racial stereotypes in his exhibition, Linked. Quashie juxtaposes images of well-known Black figures with other representations of artifacts. In “Gabriel,” Quashie tweaks an image of Louie Armstrong so that his signature trumpet is now a set of slave shackles. Each exhibition will have corresponding events throughout the coming months, from converstaions to curator-led tours. Be sure to check out the full schedule online.
