The Parrish Art Museum is partnering with two organizations to celebrate women artists. The museum is collaborating with both the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival and DIA's Dan Flavin Institute to present two unique programs where female talent shines bright.
First up, the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival (BCMF) performs a program of compositions by women composers, inspired by the Museum’s new exhibition of major works by Abstract Expressionist painter Helen Frankenthaler. The concert takes place on Monday, August 5, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. On Friday, August 9, 2019 at 6 pm, abstract painter Jacqueline Humphries will be featured in a talk in conjunction with her solo show currently on view the Dan Flavin Institute in Bridgehampton, NY.
“I’m pleased to present two programs at the Parrish to celebrate top-notch women artists in our continued partnerships with two major Bridgehampton institutions—BCMF and DIA,” said Corinne Erni, Parrish Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects.
"BCMF at the Parrish: American Dreams"
Monday, August 5, 6:30 pm
BCMF’s program of works exclusively by women composers and dating from 1892 to 2015 is inspired by the exhibition "Abstract Climates: Helen Frankenthaler in Provincetown," opening at the Parrish on August 4, 2019.
The concert features Dreaming (1892) for solo piano by Amy Beach, one of the first American women composers to garner recognition and success; two works by the 20th century French composer Lili Boulanger including D’un matin de printemps (1918) written in the year of her death at age 24; the string quartet Pizzicato (2001) by contemporary Canadian composer Vivian Fung; Death Valley Junction (2010) by contemporary American composer Missy Mazzoli; Helen Grime’s art-inspired Three Whistler Miniatures (2011); and O’Keefe (2015), a trio by Brooklyn-born Pulitzer Prize-winner Jennifer Higdon.
BCMF musicians performing the concert include Tessa Lark, violin; Marya Martin, flute; Juho Pohjonen, piano; Peter Stumpf, cello; Tien-Hsin Cindy Wu, violin; and Cong Wu, viola.
Admission is $35; $30 for Parrish Members; $10 for children and students. Advance reservations required and can be made by clicking here.
