Inaugural Art Southampton to Host Watermill Center

 Summer Bash Kick-off

to Launch The Watermill Center/John Chamberlain

Residency Fund July 27

Art Southampton presented by Art Miami will host a very special evening to benefit The Watermill Center, located in Watermill, New York. On Friday, July 27, internationally acclaimed director and Watermill Center Founder Robert Wilson will host a VIP reception followed by a screening of “HEAARTBEAT” a documentary on world renowned artist John Chamberlain created by his step-daughter Alexandra Fairweather. The screening will help launch the Watermill Center/John Chamberlain Residency Fund to benefit the Center’s year-round Artist Residency Program, which provides a unique environment for young and emerging artists to explore and develop their work.

Susan Davidson, Senior Curator, Collections and Exhibitions at the Guggenheim Museum will speak about John Chamberlain's life and work. Davidson curated the acclaimed John Chamberlain retrospective which was recently exhibited at the Guggenheim this past spring. She will also speak at the VIP Preview Reception on July26.

By documenting Chamberlain's artistic process and intentions, the film reveals his desire to go out into the world and create art that makes your 'heart beat’. ‘HEAARTBEAT’ captures the man that the public has not seen before: Chamberlain as a father, a husband, and a friend. As he battles health issues, Chamberlain fervently works to complete sculptures that will leave his mark on the world. In conclusion, the movie asserts that art's true value comes from the presentation of 'unprecedented information' and 'the experience of self-discovery’.

International friends and local supporters of The Watermill Center who are attending its famed gala – The 19th Annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit “The Big Bang,” once again bringing together the worlds of theater, art, fashion, design and society, and featuring a tribute exhibition of works by Mike Kelley: 1954-2012, will be able to kick off their weekend in grand style in the VIP Lounge at
Art Southampton.

The evening will begin with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at 5:00pm for all Watermill Center Summer Bash supporters. At 6:30 pm there will be the special screening of “HEAARTBEAT”. Seating is limited to the first 40 generous donors at the price of $500 per ticket with 100% of the proceeds going directly to The Watermill Center/Chamberlain Residency Grant Fund. Of special interest to collectors and fans of the artist will be the display of a number of Chamberlain’s works by the prestigious Gallery Valentine.

The Inaugural edition of Art Southampton presented by Art Miami will take place July 26-30 on the Elks Lodge fairgrounds 605 County Road 39, Southampton. For more information on Art Southampton and to purchase admission to the Heaartbeat Screening please visit .

The Watermill Center is an interdisciplinary laboratory for the arts and humanities completed in 2006 on the Long Island, NY site of a former Western Union communication research facility. Founded by theatre and visual artist Robert Wilson as a place for young and emerging artists to work, learn, create, and grow with each other, Watermill integrates performing arts practice with resources from the humanities, research from the sciences, and inspiration from the visual arts. Their annual summer gala is always one of the most anticipated parties of the season. Guests can purchase individual tickets and tables at , or by contacting Diana Aceti at 631.726.4628.
