The Parrish Art Museum presents a conversation with artists Jeremy Dennis, Sam Moyer and Enoc Perez who discuss their work and selections from the permanent collection currently on view in “Artists Choose Parrish: Part I” — the museum’s 125th anniversary exhibition. The talk on Friday, June 16, at 6 p.m., is moderated by chief curator Corinne Erni. For this landmark exhibition, 41 artists with local roots selected works from the Parrish collection to be shown along with their own.

Enoc Perez connects Hans Hofmann’s “Image in Green,” 1950, with his abstract yet realistic work “Dorado Beach Hotel, Puerto Rico,” 2023 — describing both as full of promise.

Shinnecock Nation member Jeremy Dennis juxtaposes his version of the desecrated indigenous burial grounds in Southampton with a painting by William Merritt Chase. While the latter’s “Shinnecock Landscape,” 1894, was devoid of any Shinnecock people, Dennis’s photograph “The Sacredness of Hills,” presents an indigenous woman looming large over a pristine landscape to affirm the continued presence of indigenous people.

Sam Moyer selects works by artist Lynda Benglis, whom she credits not only for having a direct and lasting impact on her work, but for introducing her to the North Fork — a place that has inspired Moyer for years. Three works by Benglis — a papier collé, monoprint, and mixed medium sculpture — are shown with Moyer’s work in various media including black slate, marble and plaster-coated canvas.

The Parrish Art Museum is at 279 Montauk Highway, Water Mill. For information about the talk, visit parrishart.org.
