Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South

Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art

Featuring work by: Various Artists

"Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South" is a multimedia project that engages with and unsettles assumed narratives about the American South. This interdisciplinary curatorial perspective brings together fifty-six photographers’ visions of the South over the first decades of the twenty-first century, offering a composite image of this region. Together, these photographers provide new perspectives for understanding the complex admixture of history, geography, and culture that constitutes today’s New South. The photographs featured in the exhibition will be complemented by a commissioned video, an extensive stand-alone website, an interactive digital mapping environment, and a comprehensive illustrated exhibition catalogue. The project invites viewers, practitioners, and scholars to (re)engage the region. Unprecedented in its size and scope, "Southbound" charts new courses to expand imaginings for the South as we know it today. "Southbound" is co-curated by Mark Sloan, Director and Chief Curator of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, and Mark Long, Professor of Political Science at the College of Charleston.
