Exhibition | Namsa Leuba: Crossed Looks
The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston presents Crossed Looks, the first U.S. solo exhibition of Swiss-Guinean artist Namsa Leuba. The show will feature over 90 works from the photographer’s projects in Guinea, South Africa, Nigeria, and Benin, and it will premiere new work created in Tahiti. As a photographer working across documentary, fashion & performance, Namsa Leuba’s images explore the fluid visual identity of the African diaspora. With a dual heritage between Guinea and Switzerland, Leuba draws inspiration from her own experience growing up between two different cultural traditions. The exhibition is free, on view August 27th, 2021 – December 11th, 2021. The galleries are open 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday – Friday, and until 7 p.m. on Thursdays.
Join the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston on Friday, August 27 from 6:30pm-8pm to celebrate the opening. This event is free admission. Check halsey.cofc.edu for up-to-date COVID-19 policies and event details.
