Mission
The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston School of the Arts provides a multidisciplinary laboratory for the production, presentation, interpretation, and dissemination of ideas by innovative visual artists from around the world. As a non-collecting museum, we create meaningful interactions between adventurous artists and diverse communities within a context that emphasizes the historical, social, and cultural importance of the art of our time.

General info and brief history
Since 1984, the gallery bearing the Halsey name has presented hundreds of exhibitions by regional, national, and international artists. In 2005, the gallery changed its name to the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. This change was designed to more accurately reflect the range of programming, which encompasses visual arts, film, musical performances, artist residencies, commissioned installations, publications, and lectures. Conceived as a non-collecting contemporary art facility, the Halsey Institute has evolved but remained a vital cultural resource for the City of Charleston, the State of South Carolina, and the region.

The Halsey Institute originates between five and seven exhibitions each year, many of which travel nationally. To accompany the exhibitions, they produce a year-round schedule of lectures, panels, symposia, screenings, discussions, and special events. They commission video documentaries about the artists and exhibitions as well. These videos provide keys to understanding the artist’s creative process and are permanently archived on their comprehensive website. They also produce award-winning publications for many of the exhibitions. These catalogues feature commissioned essays that provide meaningful context for the exhibitions and offer a permanent record of the artist’s project with the Halsey Institute. About once a year, they host an artist-in-residence for a period of weeks or months. The purpose of the residency is to provide artists with a unique opportunity to produce new work, which will be exhibited at the Halsey Institute.

Their emphasis has long been on providing audiences with privileged access to the creative process itself. They enjoy sharing the belief that there is much that can be learned by seeing how an artist turns “a thought into a thing.”
