Postponed: The Parrish Art Museum's Duchamp Documentary

Because of the snowstorm, the museum is closed on Friday and the screening of "Marcel Duchamp: The Art of the Possible" has been rescheduled for Saturday at 3 p.m.

Duchamp Doc
The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will screen “Marcel Duchamp: The Art of the Possible,” a 2019 documentary by Matthew Taylor, on Friday at 6 p.m. in its theater. 

The film, which will be introduced by Alicia Longwell, the museum’s chief curator, reveals how Duchamp's groundbreaking ideas and philosophy changed the understanding of aesthetics, art, and culture.

Commentary by Marina Abramovic, Larry Bell, Michel Gondry, Bibbe Hansen, Jeff Koons, Paul Matisse, Edward Ruscha, Stefan Sagmeister, Arturo Schwarz, Carolee Schneemann, and others illuminates Duchamp’s impact and legacy.

Tickets, which are $15, $5 for members and students, must be purchased in advance from the museum’s website. Proof of vaccination will be required for admittance.

Virtual Vol Show
The Volunteers of Guild Hall group has launched an online exhibition of work by 17 of its artist members. “After our successful 2019 exhibit at the Amagansett Library, we wanted to continue in a Covid-safe, winter-warm location,” said Suzanne Sylvor, the group’s president. “What could be more welcoming than our own website?”

Participating artists are Pamela M. Abrahams, Laurie Adler, Nancy Brody, Carol David, Elli Dukofsky, Maris Elman, Dale Grant, Ronnie Grill, Barbara Groot, Lorraine Papacosta, Rosa Hanna Scott, Karen Simon, Suzanne Sylvor, Ursula Thomas, Irwin Weinbaum, Susannah Weinbaum, and Judith Wit. 

Many of the artist volunteers exhibit at galleries and have their own websites. The artwork is available for purchase; interested buyers can find contact information for each artist on the exhibition website.

The show will remain online through March 31, and can be accessed at [email protected] or through Guild Hall’s website.

Pollock-Krasner Talks
The Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center will have three programs via Zoom in January. “Creative Intentions,” set for next Thursday at 4 p.m., features a tour of Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner’s studio and includes presentations about the studios of other renowned artists. 

Joyce Raimondo, the center’s education coordinator, will host the program and invite participants to share their own creative accomplishments for 2021, as well as their intentions for the new year.

Other programs at the center include a conversation with Steven Naifeh, the author of “Jackson Pollock: An American Saga,” on Jan. 27, and “Remembering Jackson,” a presentation by Ms. Raimondo on the artist’s life and work, on Jan. 28.

White Room Goes "Glam"
“Glam,” an exhibition of work by six artists focused on beauty and excitement, will open at the White Room in Bridgehampton on Saturday and continue through Feb. 6.

The work of Punk Me Tender, a Los Angeles artist, draws from street art, graffiti, and fashion. Markus Klinko is an international fashion and celebrity photographer. Pop Art with a hint of nostalgia informs the mixed-media paintings of Natan Elkanovich.

Nelson De La Nuez’s work, also rooted in Pop, explores themes of wealth, power, and fame. Russell Young’s photographs range from cultural icons to Native Americans and the American West. Linda Colletta’s abstract paintings incorporate a variety of textures and techniques.
