Allan Wexler to Speak at Parrish Art Museum Friday

The gap between fine and applied art

Allan Wexler will discuss his work, which fuses sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, and architecture, and sign copies of his new book, “Absurd Thinking: Between Art and Design,” at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill Friday at 6 p.m.

The first comprehensive monograph on the artist, “Absurd Thinking” illustrates a cross section of his multi-scale, multimedia work through his writings, narratives, and reflections. It documents more than 200 projects that mediate the gap between fine and applied art.

Tickets are $12, free for members and students, and advance reservations have been encouraged.
