Hamptons’ Parrish Art Museum Curator Making Radical Impact

Jack Sullivan

Andrea Grover, the Parrish Art Museum Curator of Special Project, was recently awarded a 2014 Emily Hall Tremaine Exhibition Award to realize the upcoming 2016 exhibition, Radical Seafaring. The exhibition is scheduled to be on view from April 2016 through July 2016. The Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation recently announced that Radical Seafaring was one of only three exhibitions to receive this prestigious award. In addition to the $150,000 grant, the Parrish Art Museum will also receive a living artist stipend to compensate artists whose existing work will be included in the exhibition.

"I am immensely grateful to the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation for their support of this adventurous exhibition that is especially timely as climatologists anticipate the effects of rising sea levels, changes in weather patterns, and the associated impact on coastal zones. The Parrish Art Museum on the East End of Long Island, surrounded by water in a community steeped in its own maritime tradition, is a perfect setting for Radical Seafaring," stated Andrea Grover.

Radical Seafaring will survey the practice of approximately 25 artists with works that range from artist-made vessels, to documentation of creative expeditions, to speculative designs for alternative communities at sea, dating from the 1960s to the present day. Public programs will make up a critical component of the exhibition, with on- and off-site commissions, boat trips, and artist-led excursions around East End waterways.

Parrish Art Museum Director Terrie Sultan comments, "The Museum Board of Trustees and I are extremely proud of Andrea for her highly original concept for the exhibition. Radical Seafaring is a perfect example of how the Parrish Art Museum's programming responds to the natural setting and artistic life of Long Island's East End in its commitment to illuminating the creative process."

The Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill, NY. For more information, visit www.parrishart.org.
