PLATFORM

The Platform series is an innovative artist-driven approach to programming within the building and grounds of the new Parrish Art Museum. Platform involves ongoing artists' projects that consider the entire Museum—from the corridors to the café to the covered porches and terraces–as a potential canvas for works that transcend disciplinary boundaries. Each year, a new artist or collective is commissioned to generate ideas that respond to and activate the myriad spaces and grounds of the Museum, encouraging new ways to experience art, architecture and the landscape. Projects may include time-based art, performance, sound installation, social practice art, participatory events, and other emerging forms of creative expression. 

Platform Goals:

• To embrace artistic experimentation and emerging practices in the creative field

• To offer new ways for the community to experience art, architecture, and the landscape

• To enliven the experience of visiting the Museum through participation and active engagement of the public

PLATFORM ARTISTS:

2014: Maya Lin

2013: Josephine Meckseper

2012: Hope Sandrow

PARRISH ROAD SHOW

The Parrish Road Show, an offsite creative summer series, takes place each year in August and features temporary projects by East End artists. Now in its third year, Parrish Road Show is designed to deeply connect creativity to everyday life by presenting exhibitions and programs at unexpected places—from public parks to historic sites—across the region. Curator of Special Projects Andrea Grover states, “Road Show aims to broaden the traditional understanding of the function of an art museum by bringing art outside and into the community.” Parrish Road Show also has included related public programs like an art historical bike tour, outdoor movies, guided meditation, local food tastings, and live music.
