April 3: Making the Case for Contemporary Art in America’s Most Historic City

Mark Sloan 

In this presentation, Mark Sloan will discuss some of the challenges of presenting adventurous contemporary art in a city better known for its history and traditions.

Mark Sloan has been the Director and Chief Curator of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston since 1994. The Halsey Institute is a multi-disciplinary, non-collecting contemporary arts museum, with an emphasis on promoting the work of emerging, mid-career, and oddly overlooked artists from around the world.
