    On View | Julia Chiang: The Glows and The Blows

    The Parrish will present the first-ever solo museum exhibition by painter Julia Chiang. The artist will present new, large-scale paintings and ceramics. Chiang’s painterly process is slow and controlled while spontaneous. Organic shapes coalesce on the picture plane in varying densities of paint and with fervor, scrimmage for territory. She operates in the realm of abstractions, but the body is the basis for her allegories, metaphors, and explorations. Her vocabulary is rife with organic forms and formations, which function as introspections that range from the corporeal to the psychological.

    KAWS: TIME OFF continues the Parrish Art Museum’s legacy of presenting American artists at the forefront of new creative languages and global art movements. This survey exhibition, the first in the East End, explores KAWS’ dynamic range of visual vocabulary and diverse artistic output over the last decade, highlighting his consistent engagement with American popular culture while intentionally exploring boundaries and overlaps between different genres and across mediums.

    On View | Eddie Martinez: Buflies

    Celebrated for his bright, bold, and colorful paintings, Eddie Martinez presents a new body of work made specifically for the Parrish. Taking advantage of the Museum’s expansive space and high ceilings, Martinez’s seven 12-foot-tall Bufly paintings are imbued with personal iconography. The artist started the Bufly series in 2021 when his son Arthur, who was two then, became fascinated with butterflies, mispronouncing them as “buflies.” Martinez has been painting them ever since.

    June 30–September 29, 2024

    On View | Sam Moyer: Ferns Teeth

    Sam Moyer’s solo exhibition showcases the artist’s relationship to material and light as a throughline in her practice, displaying the range of her processes, and bodies of work across three galleries. Each space will focus on a material relationship, as Moyer presents a large-scale stone painting, sculptural photographs, and a series of smaller, more representational wall works. As part of the exhibition, artist-made marble benches will be present in two of the three galleries, and playable, hand-cast concrete backgammon boards will be placed in the Museum’s lobby.
