2005 Exhibitions at The Parrish Art Museum

People, Places and Things - The Exhibition
April 3 through May 15, 2005

As The Parrish looks to the future, behind-the-scenes planning for the first installation of the permanent collection goes on apace. To test the waters, so to speak, People, Places and Things will present a preview of three themes currently in play, Michael Combs: The Trophy Room - The Exhibition
April 3 through May 15, 2005

Michael Combs comes from a long line of Long Island boat builders, decoy makers, fisherman and market gunners who for five generations made their living on the Great South Bay. In this site-specific installation for The Parrish's Transept Gallery, Combs focuses on the ultimate male retreat, the "trophy room," where masculinity, aggression, and acquisitiveness converge in a compelling commentary on social and environmental concerns.
