This packet features artwork from the exhibition Dis/placements: Revisitations of Home which is featured as a virtual exhibition at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston. It is intended as a tool to help you look at art with your children/students. You can prepare for your inquiry-based discussions by reviewing the background information provided. Then use the Questions for Viewing and artwork reproductions to look closely, think critically, and respond to the art together. Extend your investigations with one or more of the suggested activity ideas. In general, questions for younger audiences are listed first followed by progressively more complex ideas. Feel free to adapt the suggested activities according to the age group you are working with. We encourage you to check out the Halsey Institute’s blog for articles and activities related to the show, as well as interviews with some of the artists.
