    Martin Creed: Work No. 2210: EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT

    May 28 – November 30, 2021

    One of Creed’s most iconic works, EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT is an expression of his desire to communication, connect, and provoke. For Creed, his art is “50% about what I make and 50% about what other people make of it.” Both playful and minimalist, EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT is visually spectacular in its neon audacity, yet it also encourages a more contemplative response. While the phrase is at first familiar and reassuring, it gently suggests that everything might not be alright, pointing to the heightened anxieties and inequities of this moment.

    Affinities for Abstraction: Women Artists on Eastern Long Island, 1950-2020, is a freewheeling look at the work of 42 artists who have called the Hamptons home for a week, a season, or a lifetime. Organized by the Museum’s Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator Alicia G. Longwell, Ph.D., the exhibition tells the sweeping story of artists with ties to the region who have expanded and exploited the language of abstraction.

    Material Witness

    2021

    Material Witness presents four large-scale sculptures and paintings in which the materials used by the artist are inextricably connected to the meaning of the work itself. The exhibition features Simone Leigh’s Sentinel, 2019, on long-term loan from the FLAG Art Foundation, N.Y., plus works from the Museum’s collection by Ross Bleckner, Louise Nevelson, and Donald Sultan.
