JDT Lab: DETROIT by Lisa D’Amour

Starring Chloe Dirksen, Joanna Howard, Terry Fiore, and more TBA

Directed by Max Quinlan

On the surface, Detroit is a play about two sets of neighbors in Suburban America. Below the surface, however, there is more to each of their stories. This Pulitzer Finalist, Obie Award-winning play by Lisa D’Amour asks the question, “Do we ever really know who we’re living next to? Or with?”

Charles Isherwood of the NYTimes wrote,

“A sharp X-ray of the embattled American psyche as well as a smart, tart critique of the country’s fraying social fabric, Ms. D’Amour’s dark comedy is as rich and addictively satisfying as a five-layer dip served up with a brimming bowl of tortilla chips.”

FREE! Reservations required at https://give.guildhall.org/JDTLab.

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Witness for the Prosecution) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre inLondon. David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight. Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centre stage.  As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.

TARYN SIMON: THE INNOCENTS: GH Member Only Reception

The Guild Hall Museum opens its summer exhibition season with The Innocents, a seminal work by Taryn Simon. Free Admission. Museum Hours: Monday, Friday & Saturday 11am-5pm & Sunday noon-5pm. The Museum at Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, East Hampton, New York 11937, 631.324.0806, GuildHall.org

June 17 through July 30

TARYN SIMON: THE INNOCENTS

Simon’s earliest body of work, The Innocents (2002), 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. All of these locations hold contradictory meanings for the subjects. The scene of arrest marks the starting point of a reality based in fiction. The scene of the crime is at once arbitrary and crucial: this place, to which they have never been, changed their lives forever. Sponsored in part by William L. Bernhard, Dorothy Lichterstein, Joan and Lucio Noto, and Toni Ross. Museum Hours: Monday, Friday & Saturday 11am-5pm & Sunday noon-5pm. The Museum at Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, East Hampton, New York 11937, 631.324.0806, GuildHall.org

Season Spectacular – Jay Leno

Performance with Benefit Dinner to follow.

Performance only tickets $250 Orchestra / $150/$145 GH Members Balcony

Acclaimed TV late night show host, admired stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, much-in-demand corporate speaker, lovable TV and movie voice-over artist, pioneering car builder and mechanic, and philanthropist…it’s no wonder that Jay Leno is widely characterized as “the hardest working man in show business.”

Jay Leno’s late night television ratings domination included more than two decades of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” winning every consecutive quarter of his hosting over the past 19 years. After resuming hosting the 11:35 PM program following its one-time interruption,, he  made it once again the consistent and uninterrupted ratings leader for late night, leading all of the ensuing quarters handily, under the supervision throughout of executive producer Debbie Vickers.  He has been honored by the Television Academy with an Emmy for “Outstanding Comedy, Variety or Music Series.” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” has also taken home the trophy for “Favorite Late Night Show” in the annual TV Guide Awards determined by voting viewers, and he was recently installed in the Television Academy’s Broadcast Hall of Fame.

David, a resolute bachelor learns more about love than he bargained for and as his father’s wingman and screener, sees some things he’d like to forget.

Avedon’s America

Displaying over fifty years of Richard Avedon’s photographic career, the show is a comprehensive presentation of black and white images that are as visually striking as they are psychologically intriguing.  Avedon’s work stands as a testament to his dedicated desire to understand the unifying beauty in diversity. In consideration of the current global political landscape, Avedon’s America is a decidedly timely exhibit, focused on America and its disparate people. The breadth of portraits on view inspires a deeper understanding of the many characters, ideas, and relationships that shaped the cultural discourse of 20th century America.  From the Civil and Women’s Rights Movements to the Vietnam War, and with pioneering figures in visual, performing, and literary arts, subjects include William F. Buckley, John Cage, Janis Joplin, Florence Kennedy, China Machado, Malcolm X, Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump.

Jackson Pollock: The Graphic Work  

Jackson Pollock is best known for his stunning abstract poured paintings from the 1950s—work which marked the high point of his artistic career. But many people may not realize that from 1943, Pollock also explored the art of printmaking quite different from his lithographs. Pollock’s intaglios from 1944 and 1945 are critical in his development and forecast his signature style in painting.The graphics in the Guild Hall exhibition include the six engravings from 1944-45, reprinted in 1964, and the six screenprints in the 1951 portfolio, reprinted in 1967. Both sets were reprinted from the original copper plates or silkscreens under the approval of Lee Krasner, Pollock’s widow and an artist in her own right.

All Museum Programming supported in part by: Crozier Fine Arts, The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, Lorenzo and Mary Woodhouse Trust, Melville Straus Family Endowment,  New York State Council on the Arts  and Suffolk County,

 FREE Admission. Museum Hours:  Monday, Friday & Saturday 11am-5pm & Sunday noon-5pm. Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, East Hampton, New York 11937, 631.324.0806, GuildHall.org

Jackson Pollock: The Graphic Work Gallery Talk

With Helen Harrison, the Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center

Pollock is best known for his stunning abstract poured paintings from the 1950s — work which marked the high point of his artistic career. But many people may not realize that Pollock also explored the art of printmaking on the way to developing his signature style of painting.

While it was a medium he never truly embraced professionally, from 1943 through the early 1950s, Pollock did experiment with different printmaking techniques and even produced a number of small scale silkscreens and screen-printed greeting cards in his own studio.

Works include six intaglios printed from original plates Pollock created and 1944 and ’45, and six silkscreens printed from screens made in 1951. Both sets of prints, are restrikes which were done in 1964 from the original plates under the approval of the late Lee Krasner, Pollock’s widow and artist in her own right. Free Admission.
