SC State Hosts Exhibition of Artist Jonathan Walsh

Friday, May 15, 2009

SC State’s Fine Arts Center (FAB) Gallery is currently hosting the exhibition of artist and professor of digital media at SC State, Jonathan Walsh. Walsh’s exhibition “Prelude” will be on view through Friday, May 15, 2009.

Prelude is a video installation based on light and hope. The dreamlike qualities of this brief film, accompanied by the musical score performed by Walsh, evoke a common longing for an idealized past. Super-8 film, popularized through innumerable silent family films, is employed by Walsh to create a wistful and ambiguous narrative.

Walsh’s multimedia installations have been exhibited in the US and Canada including the Bourget Gallerie, Concordia University; Articule Gallerie; Cégep de Vieux Montréal; Université du Québec au Montréal; Exquisite Corpse ArtSite, Burlington, Vt.; City Gallery, Charleston, S.C., Spoleto Festival, U.S., ‘Montréal: Projections in Public’ site-specific exhibition, and the Gibbes Museum of Art, located in the historic district of Charleston S.C.

In 2001 his installation ‘The Philosopher’s Bookshelf’ was part of the 2001 Triennial at the South Carolina State Museum in Columbia, S.C.

His installations have also been exhibited at SC State’s I.P. Stanback Museum and Planetarium.
