Start Date: April 30, 2017
End Date: April 30, 2017
Time: 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Sunday, April 30, 2 pm
The Parrish Art Museum is launching a new series where architects can exchange ideas and insights with leading practitioners and thinkers from myriad disciplines. Inter-Sections: The Architect in Conversation brings together diverse voices, communities, and interest groups concerned with building and designing for a vibrant and sustainable future on the East End and beyond. It will explore the architect’s role in proposing design solutions for cultural, infrastructural, environmental, social, and geopolitical challenges.
The Museum is planning several Inter-Sections programs per year that may include talks, panels, symposia, workshops, think tanks, and special projects that foster an open dialogue between architects and professionals in the fields of art, landscape design, technology, science, new media, academia, government, public policy, and others. The series kicks off Friday, March 3 at 6 pm with a conversation on building for art between internationally acclaimed architect Preston Scott Cohen and Parrish Art Museum Director Terrie Sultan. Subsequent programs feature a screening of the film Citizen Jane: Battle for the City, a program exploring the relationship between architecture and landscape design, and symposia on water and climate change.
The next Inter-Section, organized in collaboration with the Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival, will feature a screening of Matt Tyrnauer’stimely documentary Citizen Jane: Battle for the City on Sunday, April 30 at 2 pm. The inspirational film chronicles the battle waged by legendary writer and urban activist Jane Jacobs to save historic New York City neighborhoods from the drastic redevelopment plans of power broker Robert Moses in the 1960s. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with special guests.
The Inter-Sections program on Friday, June 9 was developed in conjunction with Landscape Pleasures, the Museum’s annual garden symposium. Architects and landscape designers will address questions such as: How can landscape design successfully weave together human activity, natural forces, and the built environment? How can architects and landscape designers work together in a more holistic context and implement low-impact and regenerative projects? Can practitioners in these disciplines help the community connect with nature’s elements—soil, water, air, plants and animals—in new and creative ways?
On Friday, September 22, the Parrish will present symposia on water and climate change in conjunction with the Parrish special exhibition Platform: Clifford Ross Light | Waves. Artists, architects, designers, policymakers, farmers, fishermen, technologists, and scientists from the East End and beyond will explore water as an artistic inspiration as well as a resource threatened by climate change through panels, talks, and World Café workshops. The emphasis of the symposia will be cross-disciplinary exchanges and collaborations, and an examination of how experts in the creative and scientific fields can create solutions for water management and protection.
