In Transit: A Lecture by Steve Johnson
Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art presents In Transit, a lecture by College of Charleston associate professor of Drawing Steve Johnson. The focus is a body of work that was made during a nine-month Fulbright-Nehru teaching fellowship in India. The small watercolors are a response to living and teaching in India, a country of relentless movement and saturated colors. While there, Johnson’s eyes often fixed upon the small trucks and auto rickshaws racing around him during daily work commutes, inspiring many of the watercolors in this body of work. The travel photographs offer a sampling of the many sights and experiences that continue to enrich his studio practice. The lecture takes place April 13.
