The Parrish, in collaboration with Hamptons Doc Fest, is pleased to present HBO's newly released film. Inspired by the late David Driskell’s landmark 1976 exhibition, “Two Centuries of Black American Art,” the documentary Black Art: In the Absence of Light offers an illuminating introduction to the work of some of the foremost Black visual artists working today. A pre-recorded conversation between the director, Sam Pollard, and Senior Curator Corinne Erni will follow each screening.

Friday, April 9, 6 pm and 8:15 pm (two screenings)
