Halsey Talk: photo/realism

Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston presents a Halsey Talk: photo/realism October 3 at 6:30 p.m. Do photographs represent an objective version of reality, one that is faithful to the exact time and place the camera’s shutter opened? Can a painter achieve the same rendering of reality? Participants will discuss the concept of photorealism, or the ability of any artist to visually represent that which they see before them. Halsey Talks are an ongoing series of roundtable discussions on intriguing concepts in art. While they may take advantage of exhibitions on view at the Halsey Institute, they are open-ended in nature. As a platform for a deeper understanding and discussion of fascinating ideas in art, Halsey talks are open to all. Free.
