*new date: Friday, July 28th 

Join ArtTable for an art filled day in the Hamptons. We will start in Bridgehampton with a private tour of Louise and Leonard Riggio’s impressive postwar and contemporary collection. Next we will visit Mary Heilmann’s studio before seeing her works on view at the Dan Flavin Art Institute. The tour will be followed by a relaxing box lunch on the lawn. We will then head to East Hampton for a studio visit with artist Audrey Flack. Our day concludes at the Guild Hall Museum, where we will be welcomed by director and chief curator Christina Strassfield and meet Taryn Simon for a talk and an intimate look at her seminal work The Innocents. 


Collector's Visit | Louise and Leonard Riggio

The day begins in Bridgehampton with a private tour of the home of Louise and Leonard Riggio, Founder and Chairman of Barnes & Noble. The couple’s impressive postwar and contemporary collection includes several outdoor sculptures, including Lay of the Land (2016), a commissioned work by Maya Lin; the impressive De Maria Garden and Pavilion, housing a series of Walter De Maria works; and Richard Serra’s Grief and Reason (for Walter), created in honor of De Maria upon his death in 2013. The work indoors rotates between genres of the late 1960s and 70s, such as Minimalism, Pop, Conceptual Art, and Arte Povera with works by the likes of Ed Ruscha, Roy Lichtenstein, and Andy Warhol.

Studio Visit | Mary Heilmann
Mary Heilmann will welcome our group at her studio before we take a short walk to see her works on view at the Dan Flavin Art Institute. Heilmann is perhaps best known for her abstract paintings, ceramics, and furniture that are characterized by a playful use of color and a relationship to pop culture as source material. 

Private Tour | Mary Heilmann: Painting Pictures

We will then head over to the the Dan Flavin Art Institute for an artist lead tour of Mary Heilmann: Painting and Pictures. The presentation includes paintings from the early 1970s just after the artist arrived in New York City, alongside works from the late 1980s when she began visiting the East End of Long Island. Several recently finished works that have not been seen outside of her studio are included in this selection in addition to recent ceramic works. The tour will be followed by a relaxing lunch on the lawn of the Dan Flavin Art Institute. 

Studio Visit | Audrey Flack 
Audrey Flack, a pioneer of photorealism (the only woman in the ground breaking group) and a nationally recognized painter and sculptor, will welcome our group at her studio in East Hampton, which is the former home of Jimmy Ernst. Flack was recently awarded with The Women’s Caucus for Art 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award. Flack was also one of the first photorealist painters to be included in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection, she focused the early years of her career on large-scale paintings of still lifes that drew from 17th-century Dutch vanitas painting—updated through a contemporary lens—and brought feminine identities under scrutiny.
Private Tour | Taryn Simon's The Innocents @ Guild Hall Museum
The day concludes with a behind the scenes look at Taryn Simon’s earliest body of work, The Innocents (2002); which documents the stories of individuals who served time in prison for violent crimes they did not commit. At issue is the question of photography’s function as a credible eyewitness and arbiter of justice. The primary cause of wrongful conviction is mistaken identification. Simon photographed these men at sites that had particular significance to their illegitimate conviction: the scene of misidentification, the scene of arrest, the scene of the crime, or the scene of the alibi. Simon will provide the group with insight into her work.
