The Permanent Collection: Five and Forward

James Brooks | The Parrish Art Museum

November 10, 2017 to October 31, 2018

This November marks the fifth anniversary of the Parrish in its Herzog & de Meuron-designed building in Water Mill. To celebrate this milestone, the annual reinstallation of the Parrish permanent collection presents a closer look at artists whose work represents the ongoing legacy of artists of the East End.


Individual galleries will be dedicated to Abstract Expressionist James Brooks (1906–1992).


Recently, the Museum was entrusted with the most significant collection of works by Brooks and Charlotte Park by the James and Charlotte Brooks Foundation. Twenty paintings on view by Brooks, a key figure in modern American art who lived on the East End for decades, illustrate his embrace of experimentation and risk.
