Parrish Art Museum

“Radical Seafaring" opens on May 8, 2016 and continues through July 24, 2016.

A Member’s Reception takes place on May 8 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“Radical Seafaring” is a multidisciplinary exhibition presenting two-dimensional works, sculptural objects, vessels, models, film and video, off-site commissions and boat trips around East End waterways. Under the direction of Andrea Grover, the show will feature 25 artists showing works ranging from artist-made seafaring vessels, documentation of past expeditions and art performance pieces, designs exploring alternative communities on the water and more. Presented in four different themes, the art in "Radical Seafaring" presents a collection art making as a "new form of expression" with artists making site-specific works on the water or in interaction with the water versus water in the distance as aesthetic muse.

The Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway, Water Mill, NY 11976. www.parrishart.org.
