LongHouse Reserve’s Annual

Season Opening, Rites of Spring

Saturday, April 28, 2018, 2-5pm

Edward Albee Amphitheater Dedication

Performance by Academy Award Winner Mercedes Ruehl and Actor Harris Yulin, 5:30pm

Former NEA Chair Jane Alexander to Speak

New Artist Installations: Judith Shea and Orly Genger 

 

East Hampton, NY  - LongHouse Reserve will open its 2018 season with Rites of Spring on Saturday, April 28th, from 2-5pm. The East Hampton organization will rename its Amphitheater to the memory of playwright Edward Albee (1928-2016), in what would have been his 90th birth year. Academy Award winning actress Mercedes Ruehl will perform the dedication with friend, fellow actor Harris Yulin at 5:30pm. Former NEA Chair Jane Alexander will speak. This will be followed by the launch of the Edward Albee Memorial Fund for art purchases. Throughout the day, an exhibition of figurative works by American artist Judith Shea will be on view at the LongHouse Pavilion. A site specific work by artist Orly Genger will be unveiled in the garden.

Throughout the day, a video of Albee reading at LongHouse with Elaine Stritch will be played. The reading was held in 2001, the year LongHouse honored Albee. LongHouse Award was initiated in 2001 at our first full-fledged benefit.  The LongHouse gardens will be in full bloom with daffodils during the Rites of Spring. This event is open to the public, with a special price of $15 for general admission, and complimentary admission for members.

Edward Albee (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) was a longtime friend of Longhouse. Jack Lenor Larsen, LongHouse Founder and world renowned textile designer, had a deep friendship with Edward dating back to the 1950s when they both came to live in Manhattan.  As a Montauk resident, Edward came often to Longhouse. He served on LongHouse’s arts committee since its inception 27 years ago. Edward performed and read in the Amphitheater many times, hosted dialogues (including one with Robert Wilson), hosted galas, and even his 80th birthday. LongHouse staff and trustees will be present for the dedication.

About the Artists:

Judith Shea is an American artist, born in Philadelphia. She was raised on Long Island, attended Parsons in the 1960s, and has lived and worked in New York City ever since. Her studies of the human figure in many guises and materials were first exhibited in 1976 at The Clocktower in Lower Manhattan in a living color theory performance using a full color spectrum of sheer silk clothes.

In 1981, she began casting 3D bronze and iron ‘hollow’ figures and in the 90s carved wooden statues and her ‘anti-monuments’. Her work on the subject of 9/11, “Judith Shea: Legacy Collection” are figures carved to resemble mannequins situated in the windows of the Brooks Brothers store directly opposite Ground Zero, their upturned faces and clothes stained with the dust and light of explosion. A unique metaphor, they juxtapose an image of success, American Style, reflecting a grandiose attempt to topple it.

The exhibition at LongHouse this season will include some of these works, in particular the work “Lower Manhattan Classic”. Also on view will be earlier works in bronze and steel from the previously mentioned 3D hollow figure series of 1989-91.

Some of Shea’s current works have been included in “Greater New York” at MoMA/PS1 (2015-16), at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. (ongoing), a solo exhibition at Kent Fine Art, NY (2014). In 2012 Shea received a Guggenheim Fellowship in Fine Art. Her works are on permanent view in the Hirshhorn Museum’s Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C.

Orly Genger, using the vernacular techniques of crocheting, knitting, and knotting, creates monumental sculptures with rope—transforming this workday material into powerful yet pliable installations. Genger has been creating increasingly ambitious installations with colorful masses of hand-knotted rope – her signature medium – for over 10 years.

Outdoor work on a monumental scale has recently been a focus as seen in Madison Square Park, at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, and at The Austin Contemporary at Laguna Gloria. Through her recurring use of coarse rope, vivid color and grand scale, Genger reshapes space and actively engages viewers. Her sculptures have at once an imposing physical presence and fluidity, a softness, and a sense of welcoming accessibility, resonating with its pulsating palette of intense color. Orly Genger was born in New York City in 1979. She received her BA from Brown University in 2001, and attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2002.

Genger’s work is included in several museum collections including The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum, The Brooklyn Museum, The Indianapolis Museum of Art, The Hood Museum of Art, and The Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Her work has been featured in the The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, ArtNews, Art in America, the Boston Globe, Art + Auction, Sculpture, the New Yorker, and the Washington Post amongst others.
