Alexis Rockman: Shipwrecks

Guild Hall is proud to present Alexis Rockman: Shipwrecks. This exhibition of new paintings and works on paper by American artist Alexis Rockman looks at the world’s waterways as a network by which all of history has traveled. The transport of language, culture, art, architecture, cuisine, religion, disease, and warfare can be traced along the routes of seafaring vessels dating back to and in some cases predating the earliest recorded civilizations. Through depictions of historic and imagined shipwrecks and their lost cargoes, Alexis Rockman addresses the impact—both factual and extrapolated—that the migration of material culture, people, plants, and animals has on the planet. The artist’s virtuosity with paint and his appreciation for the marine landscape genre connect this body of work to maritime art history and its abundant sociological themes. This timely exhibition is propelled by impending climate disaster and the current largest human migration in history, which is taking place in part by water.

An excellent platform for the discussion of the 2020 global pandemic, Alexis Rockman: Shipwrecks examines the long history leading up to globalization, including the exploitation of humans, animals, and natural resources, and the ways in which all parts of the planet are now inextricably connected.

Inclusive of non-Western depictions of waterborne vessels and journeys, Alexis Rockman: Shipwrecks departs from traditional euro-centric maritime images associated with the Age of Exploration and embraces other periods and global regions that contributed to the history of seafaring.

Karin Waisman: The Horizon Is Not a Straight Line

Gallery Talk: Karin Waisman in conversation with Estrellita Brodsky PhD: May 8 at 3pm

Woodhouse Gallery 
Curator: Christina Strassfield 

Karin Waisman is an Argentinian, multidisciplinary artist whose practice investigates the rhythmic cadence and pulsating patterns of nature. Her work includes large-scale public installations, wall reliefs, and drawings that explore our perception of the natural world— its fluid and contradictory processes, boundless growth, and imminent threat of disorder. In this new exhibition at Guild Hall, Waisman will present The Horizon Is Not a Straight Line, a site specific, 250-inch long cast resin and ceramic wall relief that investigates the notion of the border, conceiving it not as a straight line but a complex contact point between two elements that push and pull while continuing to support one another. Also included are two series of Waisman’s pencil drawings on mylar. The first, Fragments of a Mountain (2018–2021), studies the passage of geological time, absolute and determined by emptiness. Hundreds of years of erosion expose cavities in rock that hold humidity and debris. The second series, titled The Ocean Drawings (2012-2014), immerses the viewer into varying depths, currents, and temperatures, evoking oceanic currents that move us deeper then closer to the surface. The final and earliest work, Siren’s Beach (1996), unfolds across the floor in a cast-aluminum sculpture depicting a segment of desiccated land fragmented into a maze of Pythagorean spirals. This is the most in-depth presentation of Waisman’s internationally exhibited collection of work to date. 

Waisman has completed commissions for institutions such as Espacio Escultórico del Desierto in San Luis Potosí, México; Museo del Barrio in New York, NY; Plattsburgh Sculpture Park at SUNY Plattsburgh, NY; ART/OMI Sculpture Park in Ghent, NY; and Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, NY. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States and internationally, including Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, NY; Museo del Barrio in New York, NY; SculptureCenter in Long Island City, NY; Point of Contact in Syracuse, NY; Wallace Gallery in SUNY Old Westbury, NY; Neuhoff Gallery in New York, NY; Haim Chanin Fine Arts in New York, NY; Plattsburgh State Art Museum in Plattsburgh, NY; Hartell Gallery at Cornell University, NY; Überseemusum, Bremen; Unesco Institut für Pädagogik in Hamburg, Germany; Bürgerhalle im Rathaus in Wolfsburg, Germany; Museo del Chopo in Mexico City, Mexico; Yvonamore Palix Gallery in Houston, TX; and Fundacion Banco Patricios in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Enoc Perez: Paradise

Moran & Spiga Gallery 
Curator: Christina Strassfield 

Enoc Perez is a  contemporary  Puerto Rican born multimedia  artist best known for his paintings and oil stick drawings. Perez’s Guild Hall exhibition, Paradise, will explore the theme of natural disasters. Through large-scale paintings, Perez refers to the devastation that Puerto Rico experienced during the 2017 Hurricane Maria. Instead of focusing on the physical destruction, the artist paints bent, but not broken, palm trees to represent the hope that Puerto Rico will move forward and recover.

The exhibition will include paintings, sculpture and drawings that have been created specifically for Guild Hall’s installation. Paradise will be exhibited in the Moran and Spiga galleries and will be made up primarily of works that have never shown.

Gallery Talk: Museum Director’s Choice with Christina Mossaides Strassfield

Take a tour of the 83rd Artist Members Exhibition with Christina Mossaides Strassfield, Museum Director/Chief Curator.

This year Guild Hall Celebrates its 90th Anniversary and its 83rd Artist Members Exhibition. The first Artist Members Exhibition took place in 1938, shortly after Guild Hall’s inception in 1931. The exhibition is the oldest non-juried show on Long Island and one of the few non-juried exhibitions still running. Deeply rooted in the history of the East End artist colony, early participants included Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Alfonso Ossorio, Perle Fine, Bill King, James Brooks, Charlotte Park, John Little and many more, showing their support of Guild Hall and its role as their community Museum, Theater, and Education Center.

Due to the wonderful popularity of this exhibition, around 400 artists participate each year. The Artist Members Exhibition attracts remarkable art world professionals as awards jurors who select winners in the categories of Top Honors, Best Abstract, Best Representational, Best Photograph, Best Work on Paper, Best Sculpture, Best Mixed Media, Catherine and Theo Hios Best Landscape Award, Best New Artist and up to 10 Honorable Mentions. The Top Honors winner is also awarded a solo exhibition in the Museum at a later date. We are honored to welcome Antwaun Sargent as this year’s awards juror.

The new tradition of creating an ecommerce website in conjunction with the exhibition continues this year in addition to virtual gallery tours and artist talks.
