Artist Talk with Marc Trujillo and Robert Storr

Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston presents an artist talk September 16 at 2 p.m. in conjunction with the Marc Trujillo: American Purgatory exhibition. Trujillo and Quattlebaum Artist-In-Residence Robert Storr will discuss themes in the exhibition. Trujillo’s paintings portray quotidian scenes: fast-food restaurants, big-box store aisles, long terminal corridors of airports, and so on. The scenes are remarkably unremarkable. In their ubiquitous nature, the paintings present an anti-place: scenes that refer not to a specific place, but to uncannily similar tableaus that unfold every day in communities across America. Free.
