Artwork by artist Bastienne Schmidt as part of NOW HERE, a Guild Hall: Offsite exhibition at the Amagansett U.S. Life-Saving Station
The show must go on while Guild Hall’s ravishing renovation takes place—introducing NOW HERE at the Amagansett U.S. Life-Saving Station.
As one of the two museum and visual arts offsites that Guild Hall is offering this summer, NOW HERE displays the response of established artists Alice Hope, Bastienne Schmidt and Toni Ross to the life-saving station’s overall mission to rescue beings. Each offering their interpretation of meaning through installations on both the inside and outside of the grounds, Hope, Schmidt and Ross display the real purpose behind an archeological object in a collective manner. “One thing that we all agree on is that art has the power to locate,” says Hope. “While we are all disoriented, it places us in the ‘here now.’” July 16-Sept. 30, 160 Atlantic Ave., Amagansett, amagansettlss.org; guildhall.org
