OUTDOOR FILM: Leaning into the Wind—Andy Goldsworthy
Friday, September 11, 8–11pm, Parrish Art Museum

In conjunction with Landscape Pleasures and in collaboration with Hamptons Doc Fest, the Museum will present an outdoor screening of the stunning film Leaning into the Wind—Andy Goldsworthy. Admission to the documentary, scheduled for Friday September 11, 8 – 11pm, is free for those registered for the symposium, and open to the public through online ticketing. Goldsworthy makes works of art using the resources and conditions that he encounters. Earth, rocks, leaves, ice, snow, rain, and sunlight serve as material for artwork that become altered and erased by natural processes. The film, directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer (2017, PG, 93 minutes, Germany) follows the artist as he explores the layers of his world and the impact of the years on himself and his art, illuminating Goldsworthy’s mind as it reveals his art. As the artist introduces his own body into the work through actions such as throwing, climbing, and walking; and incorporates massive machinery and crews on largescale projects, his unique approach to art making becomes at once fragile and personal, stern and tough.

Saturday Evening, September 12, 5 – 7pm, Parrish Art Museum

On September 12, ticket purchasers at the Sponsor level and above ($400+) will be invited for a casual reception and guided tours through the Field of Dreams, the Museum’s inaugural outdoor sculpture exhibition with special guest Mary Margaret Jones of Hargreaves Jones, Landscape Architects, who worked with the Parrish on the siting of the sculptures and activation of the meadow.
