The Parrish Art Museum is hosting a day trip to Dia:Beacon and the Magazzino Italian Art museum on Monday, April 15, 2019. Now open to the general public, the group will be transported to the Hudson Valley on an Ambassador Bus with pick up and drop off from the East End or New York City.
Highlights of the trip include a private tour of the newly opened "Dorothea Rockburne" exhibition at Dia: Beacon led by Alexis Lowry, Dia Art Foundation Associate Curator. The group will also travel to see the inaugural exhibition "Art Povera" at the new Magazzino Italian Art museum in Cold Spring, NY. An introduction to the museum and the "Arte Povera" exhibition will be offered by Magazzino senior staff, with time for self-guided exploration of the show set inside a 20,000 square-foot structure.
After a day of visiting art museums, wine and light refreshments will be offered on the return trip to NYC and the East End. Click here to register. Parrish Membership has been waived for this trip and is not necessary to attend.
The Day Trip features conversations and commentary by Parrish Art Museum Director Terrie Sultan and Alicia Longwell, the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, Art and Education. A boxed lunch at Dia courtyard prepared by Homespun Dia:Beacon Café will be offered mid-day between the two art sojourns.
At Dia:Beacon, the "Dorothea Rockburne" exhibition features three galleries of art. One gallery features large-scale works by Rockburne from the late 1960s and early 1970s, including an interactive carbon paper installation. Two additional galleries focus on works from the early 1970s to the early 1980s. These artworks reflect Rockburne's interest in the Golden Section or "divine proportion" that co-mingled with her noting the presence of geometry in nature and man-made structures, leading to a new artistic language by Rockburne.

In the Hamptons, Dorothea Rockburne's work was the subject of the traveling retrospective "Dorothea Rockburne: In My Mind's Eye" exhibited at the Parrish in 2011. Her art is part of the Parrish's permanent collection and was on view from 2015 to 2017 in group shows presented in the permanent collection galleries at the museum's campus in Water Mill, NY. Rockburne is based in New York City and The Hamptons.
"Arte Povera" is the inauguration exhibition of the new museum that opened on March 1, 2018. The exhibition explores the Italian art movement through the work by 12 artists whose work is part of the Olnick Spanu Collection, representing the core of its Post-war Italian art.
Exhibiting artists are Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero Boetti, Pierpaolo Calzolari, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Marisa Merz, Giulio Paolini, Pino Pascali, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Gilberto Zorio.
