On Oct. 19, the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art unveils an extensive exhibition, Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South — one that's been four years in the making. There's so much to unpack in Southbound, an exhibition that spans two galleries, both the Halsey and downtown's City Gallery, that the images themselves beg for further discussion. A three-part series of talks, then, seems like a reasonable response to Southbound. The series kicks off on Thurs. Oct. 11 with presentations from exhibition curators, Mark Sloan and Mark Long.

The next two talks come from locally based photographers whose work is featured in Southbound; on Thurs. Nov. 8 hear from John Lusk Hathaway and on Thurs. Dec. 13 from Michelle Van Parys. Each talk is free and open to the public, begins at 6 p.m., and takes place at Redux.

Southbound is a multimedia project that "engages with and unsettles assumed narratives about the American South." The exhibition brings together 56 photographers' visions of the South over the first decades of the 21st century. In addition to the photographs, Southbound includes a commissioned video, a stand-alone website, an interactive digital mapping environment, and an illustrated exhibition catalogue.
