About WetLand

WetLand is a modified houseboat made by the ecological artist Mary Mattingly to demonstrate easy-to-do sustainability projects (solar power, rain water collection and purification, vegetable gardening, upcycling, etc.). WetLand describes the impact each individual can have on the environment. The vessel is being brought to the East End in conjunction with the exhibition, Radical Seafaring, and will be located on Long Wharf in Sag Harbor.

About Mary Mattingly

Mary Mattingly creates sculptural environments in urban spaces. She recently completed an installation for the Havana Biennial with the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de La Habana and the Bronx Museum of the Arts, and is currently engaged in a floating food forest for New York City called Swale. Her work has been exhibited at the International Center of Photography, New York; the Seoul Art Center; the Brooklyn Museum; the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln Massachusetts; and the Palais de Tokyo, Paris. With the U.S. Department of State and the Bronx Museum of the Arts she participated in the smARTpower Program, traveling to Manila. 

Radical Seafaring and the accompanying catalogue are made possible by an Emily Hall Tremaine Exhibition Award. The Emily Hall Tremaine Exhibition Award program was founded in 1998 to honor Emily Hall Tremaine. It rewards innovation and experimentation among curators by supporting thematic exhibitions that challenge audiences and expand the boundaries of contemporary art. 
Generous support has also been provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, an Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) Foundation Curatorial Award and the Association of Art Museum Curators, The European Fine Art Fair Maastricht, Molly Gochman and Michael Armilio, John and Anne Mullen, David and Jane Walentas, The Japan Foundation, New York, and Marilyn Oshman. Additional support for the catalogue was provided by the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation. WSHU is the exclusive radio sponsor of Radical Seafaring.
The Parrish Art Museum extends additional thanks to Robby Stein, the Village of Sag Harbor, and Ship Ashore Marina for their help and generosity in facilitating the off-site installation of Mary Mattingly's WetLand at Long Wharf, Sag Harbor.
