Telling Stories: Reframing the NarrativesThe Parrish Art Museum presents Telling Stories: Reframing the Narratives, a robust online exhibition that highlights the role that narrative plays in understanding the world through the work of eight contemporary artists who transform their unique personal histories into participatory dramas. The first online exhibition created by the Museum, the project launches Friday, May 15 at 5pm with a live presentation by Parrish Adjunct Curator David Pagel and Museum Director Terrie Sultan.
What We See, How We See
What We See, How We See is a seven-part exhibition that contextualizes work by a variety of artists through the lens of how they see and interpret the world around them. Individual galleries based on specific themes feature paintings, works on paper, photographs, and sculpture, opening with the diverse image making of artists Richard Prince, Dorothea Rockburne, and David Salle, among others.
Maya Lin: Bay, Pond, and Harbor (Long Island Triptych)
Bay, Pond, & Harbor depicts three landmark bodies of water on the East End of Long Island: Mecox Bay, Georgica Pond, and Accabonac Harbor. By using recycled cast silver, Lin captures the reflective, precious, and jewel-like quality of water. Through works of extraordinary beauty, the artist asks us to envision waterways as the irreplaceable circulatory system of the planet and consider how our actions can destabilize this fragile balance.
