Friday Nights LIVE
TALK: TOMASHI JACKSON, MINERVA PEREZ, CORINNE ERNI
Join a live-stream talk featuring Tomashi Jackson, the Museum’s 2021 Platform artist, and Minerva Perez, Executive Director of OLA, moderated by Corinne Erni, Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects as they focus on the historical and current lived experiences of Latin American communities on the East End.
Tomashi Jackson’s Platform exhibition, The Land Claim, will take place at the Parrish in the summer of 2021 with new paintings and site-specific installations. The new work focuses on the historic and contemporary lived experiences of Indigenous, Black, and Latinx families on the East End of Long Island, linked through issues of housing, transportation, livelihood migration, and agriculture. For her research, Jackson has interviewed community leaders, historians, and archivists.
