The Parrish hosted a special screening of Lifeline: Clyfford Still. Followed by a conversation with director Dennis Scholl and artist Deborah Buck, moderated by Parrish Director Terrie Sultan. Clyfford Still, one of the strongest, most original contributors to abstract expressionism, walked away from the commercial artworld at the height of his career. Extremely disciplined, principled, and prolific, Still left behind a treasure trove of works like no other major artist in history. With a wonderful mosaic of archival material, found footage and audio recorded by the artist himself, Lifeline paints a picture of a modern icon, his uncompromising creative journey and the price of independence.

Thomas Joshua Cooper in conversation with Parrish Director Terrie Sultan on his exhibit Thomas Joshua Cooper: Refuge (May 5, 2019 to July 28, 2019) Throughout his career, Thomas Joshua Cooper has been preoccupied with water as a focal point for his abiding fascination with the landscape, historical and cultural geography, cartography, and the problems of picture-making. Thomas Joshua Cooper: Refuge, features more than 49 photographs, anchored by the 20 images Cooper made along the coastal and inland waterways and interior landscapes throughout the East End of Long Island’s North and South Forks, and Shelter Island. These pictures are framed by a precise selection of pictures made over the course of several years along sites on the Hudson River as it passes through Essex, Warren, Saratoga, Rensselaer, and Dutchess counties, and a select group from Connecticut, Maine, and Massachusetts, which Cooper includes to emphasize his notion of refuge, immigration and settlement. The images of the East End of Long Island were made during Cooper’s 10-day Parrish Art Museum residency.

Join photographer Renate Aller and Parrish Art Museum Director Terrie Sultan as they discuss Aller’s new book, Mountain Interval. Aller is a contemporary photographer from Germany based in New York. As a child, she spent vacations visiting, hiking, and photographing the mountains of Austria, Germany, and Italy, beginning her lifelong appreciation for nature and the outdoors. Her latest project includes mountain peaks from six continents. These photographs were taken from locations as high as 22,500 feet (adjacent to Mount Everest) to the European glaciers and mountain peaks of her childhood vacations. The subject matter is monumental, yet the images connect the viewer in a way that is not overpowering. Aller engages us with these giants in all their detail, the veins and textures of the rocks in their constantly transient state. She isolates the mountain from its expected surroundings, using and presenting the familiar and the known in an intimate way, relating to parallel realities from different locations, opening up conversations between the different (political) landscapes in which we live.

As part of the OLA Film Festival, organized by the Organización Latino-Americana of Eastern Long Island, the Parrish hosted a special screening of Before the Ferry Arrives, followed by a conversation with Director Juan Caunedo Domínguez, live from Madrid, Spain. The film, a directing debut of Caunedo, alongside Vladimir García and Raúl Escobar Delgado, is a dark comedy that explores the sense of expectation and ambiguity experienced by Cubans when it was announced in 2015 that, after more than 50 years, a ferry service would resume between U.S. and Cuba, Before the Ferry Arrives is a smart portrait of a near-future Havana still in the midst of the restoration of U.S.-Cuba relations. The film, bold in form and structure, mixes elements of animation with live action, experimental and documentary film.
