Insider Outsider Series: Preston Douglas (May 4)

$35.00

Join us on Saturday, May 4, from 11:00–12:00 pm for the first presentation of InsiderOutsider: New Voices in the Art World, moderated by artist and curator MAGO. InsiderOutsider is intended as a series of conversations featuring underrepresented artists whose works challenge, intrigue, inspire, and offer opportunities for broadening art circles and engaging in creative dialogue.

Preston Douglas (b.1995) is a multidisciplinary artist who works between painting, fashion, and performance, whose work considers how these forms can create spiritual, nonreligious, atmospheres of faith for collective unity. His paintings are both remnants of performances and starting points for installations, addressing how surfaces can allude to both beauty and darkness through examining contemporary cultural conviction.

Like much of the artist’s work, Preston Douglas's installation TreeHuggers on view at LongHouse blurs traditional boundaries between painting, sculpture, fashion, installation, and performance. It also reflects the intersection of art, design, and nature that is at the essence of LongHouse.

In addition to participating in InsiderOutsider, Preston Douglas will be in residence at LongHouse from May 4 to May 10 for a series of workshops and interactions with school groups and visitors. The artist and his work are also a component of the MakerMentors program developed this year with the support and collaboration of BethGayle Coplan and BSquared Projects, introducing Jack Lenor Larsen and Preston Douglas to students at Amagansett and Wainscott Schools through creative learning sessions that culminate at LongHouse with the artist and the TreeHuggers.

MAGO was born in New York City on June 5th, 1982, to Colombian immigrants, weeks after their arrival to the United States.  They nicknamed their “special delivery” MAGO (Spanish for magician/wise man). MAGO is the symbol and signature used by this LatinX installation artist whose gutsy urban education and Latino heritage have developed into a signature style characterized by cross-cultural conversations, becoming the many faces of creativity. MAGO E. Martinez envisions the unimaginable and embodies multiple streams of innovative creation, inspiring culture to another plateau. First as an acclaimed installation artist and now a multifaceted professional with 15+ years of accomplishments, he has successfully labored in a spectrum of areas that allows him to connect with individuals as well as a diverse audience. 

Upcoming InsiderOutsider conversations:

June 30: Arta

July 7: Lucy Cookson

August 4: Oscar Molina

The InsiderOutsider series is made possible with support from Agnes Gund and the Suffolk County Department of Economic Development and Planning and County Legislator Ann Welker.

The Larsen Salon Series: Machine Dazzle (May 5)

$35.00

The Larsen Salon Series, offered by LongHouse Reserve in honor of its founder Jack Lenor Larsen (1927-2020), carries on a tradition of conversations, presentations, and lectures by designers, architects, and artists working at the intersection of art, architecture, design, and craft. We offer these salons to engage all of us in important dialogues of meaning in our complex world.

Machine Dazzle was born Matthew Flower in 1972. The name Machine Dazzle came from dancing in costume at a New York City club as a Dazzle Dancer. A friend referred to him as a dancing machine, which quickly morphed into Machine Dazzle. Machine's costumes began to catch the attention of other club kids, and he began taking commissions from drag queens and dancers. He has collaborated extensively with Taylor Mac. Machine is known for utilizing found objects into his costume work. Sourcing items like ping pong balls, slinkies, soup cans, rubber hotdogs and more, to deepen the work's narrative intent. In 2022, the Museum of Art and Design in New York opened the first solo exhibition of Machine's work, ‘’Queer Maximalism x Machine Dazzle’’.

LongHouse Talks: Prudence Peiffer on her book The Slip (May 25)

$35.00

Join us on Saturday, May 25 from 4–6:00 pm for a conversation with Prudence Peiffer, author of The Slip: The New York City Street That Changed American Art Forever. For LongHouse, her talk will focus on Lenore Tawney's role on Coenties Slip, and a crucial visit to her studio by Jack Lenor Larsen.

From 1956 to 1967, a collection of dilapidated warehouses at the lower tip of Manhattan became the epicenter of the art world. Coenties Slip, a dead-end street near the water, was home to a circle of wildly talented and varied artists that included Robert Indiana, Ellsworth Kelly, Agnes Martin, James Rosenquist, Delphine Seyrig, Lenore Tawney, and Jack Youngerman. As friends and inspirations to one another, they created a unique community for unbridled creative expression and experimentation, and the works they made at the Slip would go on to change the course of American art. Prudence Peiffer pays homage to these artists and the unsung impact their work had on the direction of late 20th century art and film. An ambitious and singular account of a time, a place, and a group of extraordinary people, The Slip investigates the importance of community, and makes an argument for how we are shaped by it, and how it in turns shapes our work.

The Slip: The New York City Street That Changed American Art Forever (Harper, 2023) won the New York City Book Award, was longlisted for the National Book Award, is a finalist for the Gotham Book Prize and the Plutarch award for best biography of the year, was shortlisted for the Apollo Book of the Year award, and was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.

Insider Outsider Series: Arta (June 30)

$35.00

Join us on Sunday, June 30, from 11:00–12:00 pm for the second presentation of InsiderOutsider: New Voices in the Art World, moderated by artist and curator MAGO. InsiderOutsider is intended as a series of conversations featuring underrepresented artists whose works challenge, intrigue, inspire, and offer opportunities for broadening art circles and engaging in creative dialogue.

Arta Brito was born in Ambato, Ecuador (1993). She is a classically trained oil painter  whose work explores gender and queer themes inspired by both personal and current events. Her new body of work is inspired by her own transition and creates a space where transgender people can see themselves represented in the world. The work is a bridge between modern gender constructs and indigenous gender constructs, exploring why they exist in their current form, and how expressions of gender which were once natural have been silenced and distorted. Arta wants viewers to understand that transgender people have been here since the beginning, that they are normal. Allowing for a wider gender spectrum is the human and humane thing to do. The work’s function is to start a dialogue about these ideas.

MAGO was born in New York City on June 5th, 1982, to Colombian immigrants, weeks after their arrival to the United States.  They nicknamed their “special delivery” MAGO (Spanish for magician/wise man). MAGO is the symbol and signature used by this Latinx installation artist whose gutsy urban education and Latino heritage have developed into a signature style characterized by cross-cultural conversations, becoming the many faces of creativity.

$35.00

Join us on Saturday, July 6 from 4–6:00 pm for a conversation with the renowned head of corporate affairs at Pfizer, Sally Susman, on her book Breaking Through.

In Breaking Through, Sally Susman, the renowned head of corporate affairs at Pfizer, tells the fascinating story of how the company managed the massive communications challenge that came with Covid-19 and the race to produce an effective vaccine. Just as crucial as creating the vaccine itself was the task of winning people's hearts and minds, and Susman highlights the principles that enabled her to break through, connect, and help move people forward, not only at Pfizer but over a long and stellar career. She shows how clarifying and channeling your intention is an essential first step: What are you trying to say? She illustrates how leaders need to muster the courage to be candid in order to be effective and how, in order to connect, they must both disarm with humility and delight with humor. As a gay, married woman, she talks forthrightly about the challenges and opportunities of embracing who you are, both at home and in the workplace.

$35.00

Join us on Sunday, July 14 from 3–5:00 pm for a conversation with author Rue Matthiessen and journalist Nina Rayburn Dec.

Nominated for the Pushcart Prize twice, Matthiessen's essays and short fiction have been published in numerous literary journals. Her memoir, Castles & Ruins, about growing up in an ambitious literary family, was published earlier this year. Decades after spending a summer in the Irish countryside with her parents—author Deborah Love and National Book Award winner Peter Matthiessen—Rue takes her young family back to Ireland to revisit locales from that season in the sixties. What begins as a simple, nostalgic trip quickly becomes something far more complex. As Rue digs deeper into her parents’ literary legacy, a trove of memories is unearthed, forcing her to reckon with a childhood fraught with the stormy energy of two brilliant parents often at odds with each other and their children. Both a rich and informative travelogue and a profoundly emotional memoir, Castles & Ruins celebrates the triumph of creative success while frankly appraising the often-terrible costs a family must pay for it.

About Nina Rayburn Dec

Nina Rayburn Dec is the host and executive producer of The Great Wonder podcast, which demystifies the creative process by exploring the journey to self through intimate conversations. With empathy as her guiding principle, Nina is deeply committed to amplifying the diverse voices and narratives that shape our collective history, from which we find connection and community. This focus is reflected in her career which spans audio journalism, documentary film, and fine art photography, with notable contributions to projects for public radio, The Smithsonian Institution, NBC Universal, The History Channel, and other major television networks.

Oscar Molina is a painter and sculptor from El Salvador (b. 1971) best known for his Children of the World series. These powerful works are inspired by the artist’s vivid memories as a 16-year old making the treacherous journey through the desert to escape the violence of then war-torn El Salvador in the hopes of finding safe haven in the United States. Newly arrived in the US, the ever-industrious Molina found a talent for landscaping and architectural projects. Over the years, he built a highly successful stone masonry business in Southampton, NY while devoting more and more time to formal art studies and entering the world of painting and sculpture. By the age of 30, Oscar Molina was committing the majority of his time and energy to his true passion–making art.

Today, Oscar Molina is known and respected as a prodigious, multifaceted artist who gives back to the community. In 2023 alone, his “Children of the World” sculptures graced the grounds of Long Island Museum, the Southampton Arts Center, and a major migrating installation at LongHouse Reserve. He is a board member of the Stony Brook Southampton Hospital and donates his time and artworks to raise money for this and other worthy charities.
