TAKEOVER 2020! Artists in Residence
TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller
Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies.
TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation.

SUNDAY DOCS: Screening of CONSCIENCE POINT
Presented with the Shinnecock Nation and the Express News Group
ONLINE SALES ARE NOW CLOSED AND THE EVENT IS SOLD OUT.
A waiting list will be taken starting at 4:30PM, IN PERSON ONLY, at the front desk. If space is available at 5 PM, we will allow more to enter.
For decades, the home of the Shinnecock Nation has been the subject of a brutal fight for ownership in the Hamptons, with an increased push for real estate development coming to a head against both the safety margin of Long Island’s environmental equilibrium and ties to ancestral homelands throughout the region. Directed by Treva Wurmfeld and following longtime Shinnecock activist Becky Hill-Genia and those fighting by her side, CONSCIENCE POINT takes a ground-level approach to documenting the almost two-decade-long battle for preservation that has come to encompass not only questions of land ownership, but the moralities of environmental use and income inequality within one of America’s wealthiest zip codes.
Panel discussion to follow moderated by Joseph Shaw, executive editor of the Express News Group with Shinnecock Nation members Charles Certain, Becky Genia, Alli Joseph, Bryan Polite, Tela Troge, and Shane Weeks.
