"Chisme," an installation of 15 woodcut figures of Latin migrant workers by the Salvadoran artist Jose Campos, a.k.a. Studio Lenca, will open at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill on Sunday and continue through April 16. One side of the life-size cutouts in "Chisme" ("Gossip"), features Mr. Campos's depictions of migrant workers as joyful figures dressed in vibrant colors and wearing extravagant hats.
The artist completed the project with WeCount!, an organization of immigrant workers in South Florida who drew plants, trees, and seeds on the backs of the figures. The installation aims to bring previously overlooked people into the limelight.
The exhibition was organized by Corinne Erni, deputy director for curatorial affairs, and Martha Stotsky, deputy director of education.
Also at the Parrish, in conjunction with the exhibition "Kahlo: An Expanded Body," the show's curators, Monica Ramirez-Montagut, the museum's director, and Cristina Kahlo-Alcala, will discuss the exhibition on Friday at 6 p.m. Ms. Kahlo-Alcala, Frida Kahlo's grandniece, will join the in-person program via Zoom.
Tickets are $16, $12 for senior citizens, $5 for members, free for students and children.
