The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art is a non-profit, non-collecting contemporary art institute within the School of the Arts at the College of Charleston.

The HICA presents contemporary art exhibitions by emerging or mid-career artists. The Halsey is housed in the Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Center for the Arts at 161 Calhoun Street, in the heart of downtown Charleston. The Halsey features two gallery spaces, the Deborah A. Chalsty Gallery and the South Gallery, which include a total 3,000 sq. feet of exhibition space. The vision of the HICA is to provide a comprehensive contemporary-art program that is committed to providing a direct experience with artworks in various media, in an environment that fosters creativity, innovation, and learning.

Current Exhibition: Cry Joy Park - Gardens of Dark and Light
When: May 17, 2019 - July 6, 2019
Where: Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art

Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light is an investigation into the construct of a utopia, inspired by the history of Charleston, South Carolina: a cultural and artistic capital of the American South, and an exemplar of its opulence and beauty. This installation aims to present both an alluring, gorgeous and otherworldly garden, and its darker counterpart.
