Artist Mel Kendrick, whose work is featured in a new, comprehensive exhibition at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, and his longtime friend and fellow artist Carroll Dunham will discuss their careers as artists and approach to artmaking on Saturday afternoon, January 14 from 3 to 4 PM at the Museum.
Kendrick and Dunham were both former studio assistants to Parrish collection artist Dorothea Rockburne. The talk is presented in conjunction with “Mel Kendrick: Seeing Things in Things” — the first major survey of Kendrick’s work highlighting his four-decade career that explores how the artist pushes the limits of materials including wood, rubber, and concrete to create sculpture that lays bare the process by which it was made.
The talk in the Lichtenstein Theater will be introduced by Corinne Erni, Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs and Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects.
Admission to this program and the exhibition galleries is $5 for members and students, $10 for seniors and member’s guest, and $16 for adults (nonmember). Advance ticket purchase with pre-event registration is recommended. Visit parrishart.org.
