Thomas Joshua Cooper: Refuge

July 5, 10 am - 5 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10am on Friday, repeating until July 28, 2019

May 5, 2019 to July 28, 2019

Throughout his career, Thomas Joshua Cooper has been preoccupied with water as a focal point for his abiding fascination with the landscape, historical and cultural geography, cartography, and the problems of picture-making. Thomas Joshua Cooper: Refuge, features more than 49 photographs, anchored by the 20 images Cooper made along the coastal and inland waterways and interior landscapes throughout the East End of Long Island’s North and South Forks, and Shelter Island. These pictures are framed by a precise selection of pictures made over the course of several years along sites on the Hudson River as it passes through Essex, Warren, Saratoga, Rensselaer, and Dutchess counties, and a select group from Connecticut, Maine, and Massachusetts, which Cooper includes to emphasize his notion of refuge, immigration and settlement. The images of the East End of Long Island were made during Cooper’s 10-day Parrish Art Museum residency.

The exhibition, Thomas Joshua Cooper: Refuge, is made possible, in part, by the generous leadership support of Century Arts Foundation, Lannan Foundation, The Liliane and Norman Peck Fund for Exhibitions, The Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Fund for Publications, Linda Hackett and Melinda Hackett/ CAL Foundation, and Joyce Menschel.
