David Pagel and Terrie Sultan Launch Online Exhibition: Telling Stories

FRIDAY NIGHTS LIVE!

May 15, 5 pm - 6 pm


Join us for a live presentation as Parrish Adjunct Curator David Pagel and Museum Director Terrie Sultan launch Telling Stories: Reframing the Narrativesa robust online exhibition of work by eight contemporary artists who transform their unique personal histories into participatory dramas.

Pagel, who organized the exhibition, will give an illustrated talk on the themes and concepts explored by the participating artists, and discuss their work with Sultan.

Based on the full exhibition initially planned at the Museum for Spring, 2020, prior to closures due to the Coronavirus, Telling Stories highlights the role that narrative plays in understanding the world. Through work that engages memory and history, fact and fancy, dreams and nightmares, the participating artists engage in varied approaches to and styles of stories that change by virtue of who is telling them. The artists—working in a variety of media and ranging in age, career stage, geographic location, and heritage—include: JooYoung Choi (American, born Korea, 1983), Jeremy Dennis (Shinnecock/American, born 1990), Jeffrey Gibson (Choctaw-Cherokee/American, born 1972), Elliott Hundley (American, born 1975), Candice Lin (American, born 1979), Mary McCleary (American, born 1951), Jim Shaw (American, born 1952), and Devin Troy Strother (American, born 1986)

In upcoming weeks, related programs will include talks with the participating artists and curators as the online exhibition continues to develop with additional material including video interviews by Pagel with the artists; essays by the artists and art writers; images of 62 paintings, works on paper, sculpture, and installation; and additional video and audio material.
