Parrish Art Museum Announces Advanced Exhibition Schedule for 2014-2017
LONG ISLAND -- The Parrish Art Museum has announced its Advanced Exhibition Schedule for 2014 and through 2017. The schedule is as follows:
Student Art Exhibiton - February 1-March 2, 2014. For over 60 years, the Parrish has reserved a spot in its annual exhibition schedule for student artwork, providing an exceptional opportunity for the students to experience their work on view in a professional museum. More than 1,000 young artists from private, public, parochial, and home schools participate.
Jennifer Bartlett: History of the Universe - Works 1970-2011 - April 27-July 13, 2014. Jennifer Bartlett is an artist whose radical and pioneering thematic and stylistic innovations have had a significant impact on contemporary American art of the last three decades. This first major museum survey of Bartlett's work, organized by Klaus Ottmann, former Parrish Art Museum adjunct curator and now Director of the Center for the Study of Modern Art and Curator at Large at The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C., is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue published by the Parrish Art Museum and distributed by Yale University Press. The exhibition was on view at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from June 27 - October 13, 2013.
William Glackens - July 20-October 13, 2014. Co-organized with the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia, and NOVA Southeastern University (NSU) Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, this long overdue survey of William Glackens's work will include some 75 works loaned by private collections and leading museums across the U.S. The exhibition will trace the artist's career from the mid-1890s to the 1930s, his achievements as a member of the radical American painters group known as The Eight, and his thorough embrace of Modernism, including his role as advisor to Dr. Albert Barnes in amassing his stellar art collection. Glackens's paintings of Long Island's Bellport Harbor will also be featured.
Mary Queen of the Universe: Steven and William Ladd - October 25, 2014-January 19, 2015. Mary Queen of the Universe features meticulously crafted sculpture, drawings, and prints by the fraternal collaborative team Steven and William Ladd. For more than ten years, Steven and William have explored the blurred boundaries between design and fashion, fine art and craft. In a decade of working together, with a concentrated-almost obsessive-fascination with materials and process, they have forged the foundation for a rich and productive creative process from their common early childhood memories and a close familial bond.
Alan Shields: In Motion - October 25, 2014-January 19, 2015. In Motion features selected sculpture, installations, and video documentation focusing on movement in the groundbreaking works of this innovative American artist. Alan Shields came of age artistically in New York in the 1960s. Expanding the boundaries of Minimalism's foundational grid, he established his voice as a master of aesthetic invention through a wide-ranging exploration of materials and techniques. The cornerstone of In Motion is Maze (1981-1982), Shields' most ambitious piece that functions simultaneously as a sculpture, a room, and a theatrical installation.
Student Art Exhibition - February 2015
Chuck Close Photographs - April 18-July 12 2015. This comprehensive survey explores how Chuck Close-perhaps one of the most important figures in contemporary art-has stretched the boundaries
of photographic means, methods, and approaches. The photographic origin of each Close painting is well known; however, Close's exploration of the medium extends far beyond the use of photographs as a programmatic tool. For the first time in his extensive exhibition history, this project delves into the full range of his photographic works, presenting more than 125 images spanning 1968 to the present, ranging from straightforward black and white portraits to monumentally scaled, composite Polaroids to the intimately scaled daguerreotypes.
Andreas Gursky - July 19-October 12, 2015. German visual artist Andreas Gursky is renowned for his monumentally scaled photographs-grand urban and natural landscape vistas and large format architecture-created from a dispassionate, omniscient point of view. Highly detailed, and shot from an elevated vantage point, Gursky's images are at once dead-pan observational and transcendent. He rigorously composes his expansive views to envelop viewers with dizzying scale, detail, and color-effects he often heightens through digital manipulation of the image. The Parrish will present an exhibition of the work of this artist, who was instrumental in defining contemporary German art in the 1990s and has been called one of the "two masters" of the Düsseldorf School.
Robert de Niro, Sr.: The Act of Seeing - October 24, 2015-January 17, 2016. The art of Robert De Niro, Sr., (1922-1993) transgresses the prevailing historical narrative; in an era when Abstract Expressionism was heralded as a new, solely American movement that broke from the past, his embrace of the French modernist tradition set his work apart. In subject matter, he never felt a need to venture beyond the established themes of landscape, still life, and the figure, yet within these self-imposed confines he evolved an art that defied convention as resolutely as the art of his Abstract Expressionist contemporaries.
