Current Exhibitions 
at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art


Current Exhibition: Kirsten Stolle: Only You Can Prevent A Forest
When: Aug. 26, 2022 - Dec. 10, 2022
Where: Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art

Using appropriation, wordplay, and humor, Kirsten Stolle co-opts advertising strategies used by agrichemical corporations to resurface and critique company history. For her exhibition, Stolle will create photo-based collages, visual poetry interventions, text-based sound animation, neon wall piece, interactive Mad Libs game, and her first site-responsive sculptural installation. Building upon her decade-long research into companies like Bayer/Monsanto and Dow Chemical, the work will forefront historical ties to chemical warfare and revel persistent greenwashing. Stolle’s work interrogates the effects of chemical companies on our food supply and their consistent efforts to minimize effects of their toxic products on our health and environment.
