Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, NY
The Platform series is an innovative artist-driven approach to programming within the building and grounds of the new Parrish Art Museum. Platform involves ongoing artists' projects that consider the entire Museum—from the corridors to the café to the covered porches and terraces–as a potential canvas for works that transcend disciplinary boundaries. Each year, a new artist or collective is commissioned to generate ideas that respond to and activate the myriad spaces and grounds of the Museum, encouraging new ways to experience art, architecture and the landscape. Projects may include time-based art, performance, sound installation, social practice art, participatory events, and other emerging forms of creative expression.
• To embrace artistic experimentation and emerging practices in the creative field
• To offer new ways for the community to experience art, architecture, and the landscape
• To enliven the experience of visiting the Museum through participation and active engagement of the public
