Guild Hall After Hours is a free series that engages the interdisciplinary nature of Guild Hall through live performance, food, music, and interactive happenings. Activating indoor and outdoor spaces on the Guild Hall campus, Guild Hall After Hours is the perfect start to a night in the Hamptons or an evening at the John Drew Backyard Theater. 

This Saturday’s program is in response to the Guild Hall exhibition, Alexis Rockman: Shipwrecks. Taking inspiration from the artist and the works on the view, the night will feature a live sound-installation from artist, Cliff Baldwin, and participatory installation with artist, Aurelio Torres. Food and drinks are available for purchase from Guild Hall’s new concessions, and can be enjoyed in our Minikes Garden.  

The evening is followed by a ticketed artist talk, Art and Cinema between artists Alexis Rockman and Carter Burwell, moderated by Guild Hall Executive Director, Andrea Grover, and a screening of Life of Pi in the John Drew Backyard Theater. 

Guild Hall After Hours are free and open for all to attend. Programs occur both within the building, galleries, and the Guild Hall gardens. Physical-distancing, limited occupancy, and mask coverings are enforced at all Guild Hall events.

  • Aurelio Torres

    Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, to a family of artists, Aurelio Torres was raised in New York City. His father, Horacio Torres, was an accomplished classically trained artist who died when Aurelio was a young teen in New York. His artistic training was in Barcelona, Spain, where he studied for several years with his uncle, Augusto Torres, another classically trained painter in the family and his father’s eldest brother. Aurelio’s grandfather, was the acclaimed Modernist, Joaquin Torres-Garcia. 

    Aurelio’s work infuses the aesthetic principles of classicism within contemporary settings. His painting typically depicts scenes from nature or portraits, and his sculptures most often interpret the simple, clean lines of wooden ships. 

    From a young age, Aurelio has travelled extensively around the world. This has inspired his determination to create much of his work in natural, outdoor settings. His aesthetic sensibility, as evidenced in his work, is one of essential simplicity and natural, uncontrived beauty. 

    He currently works and resides in East Hampton, New York.
