TARYN SIMON: THE INNOCENTS

The Innocents (2002), an early and influential work by Taryn Simon, 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 credible witness and arbiter of justice. First exhibited at MoMA PS1 in 2003, the work is being re-presented at an historical moment when the lines between truth and falsehood are being continuously manipulated and redrawn. In her photographs, text and film, Simon confronts photography’s ability to blur fact and fiction— an ambiguity that can have severe, even lethal consequences. The exhibition coincides with the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Innocence Project, a non-profit legal organization that works to reform the criminal justice system. Lead Sponsor: Dorothy Lichtenstein; Co-Sponsors: William L. Bernhard, Joan and Lucio Noto, Toni Ross, Suffolk County Office of Cultural Affairs. Additional support from Elizabeth and Mark Levine

Museum Hours: Monday, Friday & Saturday 11am-5pm & Sunday noon-5pm. Admission is free. 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.

Staged Reading: ASSISTED LOVING by Bob Morris

Starring Richard Kind and Tovah Feldshuh

What would you do if your 70-year-old father dragged you into his search for new romance after 50 years of marriage? 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. Richard Kind and Tovah Feldshuh shake it up in a battle of the sexes at least as fizzy as a bottle of seltzer.  Based on the author’s award winning memoir Assisted Loving: True Tales of Double Dating With My Dad, this is a heartfelt and hilarious true tale of a year of dating dangerously.

The Hamptons International Film Festival presents SummerDoc: TROPHY

Hosted by Alec Baldwin

Shaul Schwarz’s and Christina Clusiau’s TROPHY explores the complex heart of contemporary issues of animal conservation and commodification at a time when endangered African species such as elephants, rhinos and lions march ever closer to extinction.  Through the eyes of impassioned individuals who drive these industries – from a Texas-based trophy hunter to the world’s largest private rhino breeder in South Africa – the film grapples with the consequences of imposing economic value on animals. What are the implications of treating animals as commodities? Do breeding, farming and hunting offer some of the few remaining options to conserve our endangered animals? Schwarz’s and Clusiau’s richly cinematic safari will leave you debating what is right, what is wrong and what is necessary in order to save the great species of the world.

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.

Lead Sponsors: The Calvin Klein Family Foundation, Dayton Ritz &Osborne and Chubb Insurance, Suffolk County, Fern and Lenard Tessler;  Co-Sponsors:  Eileen Kornreich, Joyce F. Menschel, Joan and Lucio Noto, PACE.

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

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 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.

The Hamptons International Film Festival presents SummerDocs: ICARUS

Hosted by Alec Baldwin

One of the most audacious docs ever put on screen, director Bryan Fogel started out making a film in the mold of Morgan Spurlock and ended up in the mold of Laura Poitras. His bold gambit was this: to investigate doping in sports, Fogel (an amateur bike racer) would dope himself, observe the changes in his performance, and see if he could evade detection. In doing so, he was connected to a renegade Russian scientist, Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov, a pillar of his country’s “anti-doping” program. Over dozens of Skype calls, urine samples, and badly administered hormone injections, Fogel and Rodchenkov grow closer despite shocking allegations that place Rodchenkov at the center of Russia’s state-sponsored Olympic doping program. When the truth is more complex than imagined, and accusations of illegalities run to Russia’s highest chains of command, the two realize they hold the power to reveal the biggest international sports scandal in living memory. Exemplifying the special bond between filmmaker and subject, this is a vital portrait of the sacrifice some people will make to stand up for truth. ICARUS places you at the heart of an international game of cat and mouse, where a miscalculation can cost you your life.

Concert Reading: Are You Now or Have You Ever Been? By Eric Bentley

Directed by Harris Yulin

Starring Mercedes Ruehl and Harris Yulin with additional cast TBD

A riveting drama about the infamous 1950s House Unamerican Activities Committee where those in entertainment were subpoenaed to testify as to their loyalty as Americans and asked to name anyone who was, or suspected of being, a communist. Assembled directly from the transcripts of the hearings, the play uses actual words spoken by Lionel Stander, Abe Burrows, Lillian Hellman, Larry Parks, Elia Kazan, Jerome Robbins, and Jose Ferrer. Equally revealing are the questions asked by the committee members.

“A rollercoaster of conscience. Superbly done.” – N.Y. Post
