The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will host a series of programs that center around the life and work of Jasper Johns.
On June 17, the museum will hold a screening of “Decoy,” a short documentary by Michael Blackwood. The documentary explores the ways in which Johns invoked themes of reproduction, transformation, and memory throughout his series of paintings entitled “Decoy.”
The screening will be followed by a talk with Chief Curator Alicia G. Longwell, Ph.D, and artist Lorena Salcedo-Watson, who worked with Johns extensively.
On June 16, June 23, and June 30 from 12 to 1 PM, Longwell will host lunchtime talks to discuss the themes, techniques, and repeated imagery present in Johns’s work. Guests can preorder lunch through the museum cafe to enjoy during the talk.
