Ai Weiwei's 'Human Flow' Will Be Screened in Water Mill
During 2016, the renowned Chinese artist Ai Weiwei filmed at 40 refugee camps in 23 countries, among them Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey. The resulting documentary, “Human Flow,” a powerful visual expression of the forced migration of more than 65 million people, will be shown at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill tomorrow at 6 p.m.
A co-presentation with the Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival, the screening will be followed by a conversation between Firas Kayal, senior policy adviser at the New York office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and Corinne Erni, the museum’s senior curator of special projects.
Tickets are $20, $5 for members and students, and include museum admission.
The Parrish’s series “Inter-Sections: The Architect in Conversation” will continue on Saturday with a discussion between Iwan Baan, a Dutch photographer whose work is represented in “Image Building,” the museum’s current exhibition, and William Menking, the editor in chief of The Architect’s Newspaper.
Mr. Baan and Mr. Menking will consider how a photographer’s aesthetic choices and use of technology can imbue seemingly static buildings with feeling and meaning. Tickets are $12, free for members and students.
