Join the Halsey Institute staff and tour guides for the international celebration of “slow looking” and participate in guided in-depth conversations about a handful of the artworks in Young Contemporaries 2019.
Slow Art Day was started in order to invite novices – and experts – to experience the power of looking at art slowly.
It’s a very simple event. Visit your local museum (or gallery, public artwork, etc.) and view a small number of works of art for 5 to 10 minutes each. Then everyone meets to discuss their experience. And all this happens the same day around the world.
The result? Participants say they get “inspired, not tired” and plan to return to that museum or gallery again and again (the not-so-secret agenda is to help more people experience the excitement of art and become regular patrons of their local museums).
Composer and Clarinetist Philip Lipton will perform his original compositions at a FREE concert that will be recorded live from the St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in West Ashley. Philip Lipton is Principal Clarinet of the North Charleston POPS! Orchestra and teaches Clarinet at the College of Charleston. Circular breathing, looping and extended techniques have allowed him to explore fresh new avenues of writing and performance. Collaborators on this new performance include Eastward Music and Lisa Alvarez. Donations will be accepted.
Tickets to Mavis Staples will go on sale to the public on Friday, September 8, beginning at 11am.
Mavis Staples is living, breathing history. She is an alchemist of American music, having continuously crossed genre lines like no musician since Ray Charles. Weaving herself into the very fabric of gospel, soul, folk, pop, R&B, blues, rock, and hip hop over the last 60 years, this iconic singer has seen and sung through so many changes, always rising up to meet every road.
Now in her seventh decade, with the release of her new albumLivin’ on a High Note (ANTI-), she is only gaining momentum. Produced by M. Ward with songs by Neko Case, Justin Vernon, Nick Cave, Ben Harper, Tune-Yards, Aloe Blacc and others, the album serves as a summation and furtherance of her illustrious career. Refusing to fade away, she continues to tour incessantly, remaining as vital, engaged, and true as always. There is no persona; she is, simply and untouchable, Mavis—and Livin’ on a High Note is the symphony of her life.
