HICA: Young Contemporaries 2014


Every spring, current College of Charleston students are able to submit their recent work to the Young Contemporaries, held at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. This gives them an opportunity to have work chosen by a nationally prominent juror and exhibit in a professional gallery setting. The annual exhibition shows off the brightest talents coming from the College’s School of the Arts, including painters, sculptors, printmakers, and photographers. This unique show gives students the opportunity to learn how to prepare for future gallery exhibits and helps them to practice the type of professionalism necessary for success in such a competitive field. “The goal of the show is showing the best of the best, but also have it take on the flavor of what the students are producing at this point in time,” says last year’s juror, Scott Stulen. He continues, “It’s a little bit of a snapshot, in certain ways, of what’s happening within the College.” The Post and Courier calls the Young Contemporaries exhibit, “One of the highlights of the year.” This year’s entries are sure to impress.

Jordan had two pieces selected this year: Madonna Adoring the Sleeping Heinz (painting), and Black Totem (sculpture).
