The Watermill Center will kick-off 2021 by continuing its Winter Viewpoints series. The intimate conversations, which will take place via Zoom, will feature The Daxophone Consort (Daniel Fishkin, Cleek Schrey and Ron Shalom), composer Adam Lenz and musician Zach Rowden, artist Erica-Lynn Huberty, and multidisciplinary duo Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya.

"Though we can't gather onsite for obvious reasons, we still wanted to continue the series to engage with our local community," explained Public Programming & Residency Coordinator, Kelly Dennis. "The joy of doing this series online is that now we can expand our community beyond our local East End friends and family, continue to support artists in this way, and welcome in a global community to share in what started as an intimate event."

The winter iteration unofficially launched on December 16 with a conversation between Dennis and fellow attorney and activist, Tela Troge. The duo spoke about the history of the Shinnecock Nation, as well as their involvement in legal battles for land restoration, protection, and preservation.

"The special thing about this program is that it really showcases a wide range of topics," noted Center Director Elka Rifkin. "From important and thought provoking conversations, to highlighting the work of local and international artists, Viewpoints allows us to look into the contemporary moment and share it with each other."

The Center's annual Viewpoints: Nights @ The Roundtable series debuted in 2018. The year-round conversations highlight local artists and community organizers, as well as Watermill staff, alumni and Community Fellows.

Viewpoints with The Daxophone Consort (Daniel Fishkin, Cleek Schrey and Ron Shalom) will take place on Wednesday, January 6. Viewpoints with artist Erica-Lynn Huberty will follow on Wednesday, January 13. The Watermill Center will welcome composer Adam Lenz and musician Zach Rowden on Wednesday, January 20. The final Viewpoints of the month will feature multidisciplinary duo Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya on Wednesday, January 27.

Conversations commence at 5:30 p.m. There is no fee to "attend" virtually. Advanced registration is required.
