Chief Curator Alicia Longwell in conversation with painter Lucien Smith - 10/2/20

November 5, 2020

Join Chief Curator Alicia Longwell and abstract painter Lucien Smith, whose 10 large-scale paintings from his 2013 Southampton Suite are currently on view, for an illustrated talk.

 

Lucien Smith (b.1989) is best known for his process-based works that employ both accidental and improvisational marks to create loose, all-over compositions. Organized by Alicia LongwellLucien Smith: Southampton Suite brings the artist’s Rain Paintings series to conclusion with the 10 large-scale paintings created in a plein air studio that he constructed on the East End during the summer of 2013. With the 9 x 7 ft acrylic on unprimed canvas Southampton Suite paintings, the artist created an immersive environment that continues his quest to “. . .replicate a natural process with manmade tools.” The ten works on view here from 2013 have never been shown as a group.

Smith’s paintings, made by filling an empty fire extinguisher with paint and spraying the canvas, became widely known soon after his 2011 graduation from Cooper Union. What appealed to Smith was the way he was able to replicate a natural process—rain—with a manmade tool. For the first Rain Paintings series, Murmur of the Heart, he used blue and yellow paint; after this initial investigations he began to use a monochromatic approach, taking a cue from the traditional depiction of rain in Japanese woodblock prints.

Last September, the Parrish Art Museum invited OptoSonic Tea to present an evening-length performance, featuring 18 of the world’s most innovative video and sound artists to interact with the architecture and landscape of the Museum. The durational and site-specific group improvisation featured visual artists performing live in different areas outside of the Museum building, while live musicians and sound artists performed coordinated and spatialized works by composer and Diapason Gallery founder/director Michael J. Schumacher.  The spectacle allowed the over 400 visitors to experience the Herzog & de Meuron designed building in entirely new ways.

Corinne Erni, Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects, hosted a conversation with OptoSonic Tea founders, intermedia artists Katherine Liberovskaya and Ursula Scherrer, about the performance at the Parrish, their work during Coronavirus, and upcoming projects with Sarah Weaver from NowNets Art who joined the conversation. 

OptoSonic Tea was conceived in 2006 as a series of salon-style meetings that explore various forms of live visuals and their interaction with live audio, followed by an informal discussion about the artists’ practices over a cup of green tea.

OptosSonic Tea @ The Parrish was presented on September 27, 2019 and was curated specifically for the Museum’s Platform series.

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.

The Parrish hosted a special performance of 4 Little Girls: Moving Portraits of the American Civil Rights Movement, by the Edge School of the Arts (ESOTA), co-presented with the Hamptons United Methodist Church and with support from the Jerome Foundation for Jerome Artist Fellow, Kerri Edge. Followed by a conversation with artistic director Kerri Edge, the performers and special guest tap dancer Omar Edwards, moderated by Parrish Director Terrie Sultan. 

4 Little Girls: Moving Portraits of the American Civil Rights Movement is an experimental narrative film by Kerri Edge that infuses historical authenticity, contemporary dance movements (tap, modern dance, hip hop, and ballet) choreographed to spoken word and 60’s protest songs to recant the horrific story of Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley, the four young black girls who were violently murdered by the Ku Klux Klan when a bomb exploded in the basement of the Black 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, on September 15, 1963.

The story unfolds through the imaginative interpretations of present-day performing arts students whose teacher challenges them to go back in time and recreate the moments leading up to what Martin Luther King Jr. described as, “one of the most vicious and tragic crimes ever perpetrated against humanity.”
