Artist Talk: Jibade-Khalil Huffman
Join the Halsey Institute at the College of Charleston on May 25 at 7 p.m. for an online artist talk with Jibade-Khalil Huffman on his exhibition You Are Here. Huffman is an artist and writer whose video and photo works use found, archival material and contemporary ephemera to address slippage in memory and language, particular to race and visibility. He 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.
