The Parrish hosted a special screening of the short film Keith Sonnier – Sketches to Neon, followed by a conversation with filmmaker Lana Jokel, and artist Keith Sonnier. Moderated by Alicia Longwell, Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator.
Jokel’s 15 minute pilot illuminates the history and creative process of Sonnier, a pioneering figure in the fields of conceptual, post-minimal, video, and performance art who radically reframed the function of sculpture. Filmed at two locations in the Hamptons, the documentary follows Sonnier and Jokel to a local autobody shop where the artist is transforming a 1950s Oldsmobile into a mobile neon sculpture. The second location is Sonnier’s Bridgehampton studio, where he and Jokel discuss his process of transforming sketches and maquettes into neon works.
Our Friday Night programs at the Parrish are made possible, in part, by presenting sponsor Bank of America, with additional support provided by The Corcoran Group and Sandy and Stephen Perlbinder.

PECHAKUCHA NIGHT HAMPTONS
As the official site for the Hamptons, we join over 700 cities globally in hosting “PechaKucha Nights,” named for the sound of “chit-chat” in Japanese. The format is simple: each invited presenter gets 20 slides x 20 seconds per slide to talk about living creatively on the East End. This is a great opportunity to establish new relationships, learn about local resources, and hear from the many creative professionals of our region.
