Roadshow 2021 | Off-site exhibition
Darlene Charneco: Symbiosome Schoolhouse
August 28–October 24, 2021
Examining human settlements, forms of interaction, and evolution at the Old Point Schoolhouse and its grounds, the exhibition brings together her signature wall relief Touchmaps, works on paper, a machinima video loop of experimental projects in virtual worlds, and an outdoor sculpture.
Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948–1960
August 1–October 24, 2021
Providing an illuminating prologue to the artist’s well-known comics-inspired imagery, the exhibition tells the largely overlooked story of his early career, when formal experimentation and a keen eye for irony irrevocably defined his art.
Tomashi Jackson: The Land Claim
July 11—November 7, 2021
Centered on the historic and contemporary lived experiences of Indigenous, Black, and Latinx families on the East End of Long Island, the exhibition speaks to how issues of housing, transportation, livelihood, migration, and agriculture link these communities.
Martin Creed: Work No. 2210: EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT
May 28—November 30, 2021
An expression of Creed’s desire to communicate, connect, and provoke, the brightly lit sculpture 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.
Everything That Wasn’t White: Lonnie Holley at the Elaine de Kooning House
April 24—November 7, 2021
Everything That Wasn’t White: Lonnie Holley at the Elaine de Kooning House presents 35 new paintings, works on paper, and sculpture created by artist and musician Lonnie Holley during his 2020 artist-in-residency at the Elaine de Kooning House in East Hampton.
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.
