Halsey Talks: Virtual Exhibitions
Halsey Talks are an ongoing series of roundtable discussions of intriguing concepts in art, hosted by the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston. While they may take advantage of exhibitions on view at the Halsey Institute, the 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. October 14th at 7 p.m., the focus will be on the essential characteristics of virtual exhibitions. What makes a virtual exhibition virtual? Are successful virtual exhibitions analogues of physical exhibitions? Or are there qualities that make them entirely different mechanisms for presenting work? The discussion will look at virtual exhibitions created by the Halsey Institute and other museums, many out of necessity during the COVID-19 pandemic. To join the conversation, RSVP to Bryan Granger at GrangerBW@cofc.edu.
