The Parrish Art Museum features speakers giving rapid-fire presentations about living creatively on the East End at PechaKucha Night Hamptons, Vol. 31, on Friday, November 20 at 6pm. For the first time, PechaKucha will be presented live-streamed as well as in the Museum. The speakers, who will show 20 images for 20 seconds in compelling 6-minute and 40-second long presentations, include artists Irina Alimanestianu, Jody Cukier, and Jeremy Grosvenor; health care specialist Sara Cohen, and photographers Tria Giovan and John Madere. Registration opens November 11 at

“I’m thrilled that the Parrish Art Museum continues to provide this great public platform for creative people on the East End to share their passions,” said Jennifer Duque, Head of Museum Experiences.


Irina Alimanestianu’s abstract paintings are a sensory reading of the environment, its past and present, and its vibrational tones that surround and compel her. The artist was raised in New York, Switzerland, and France, and spent a substantial portion of her adult life between New York and Venice, California.


Sarah Cohen, trained as a physical therapist, launched the Center for Parkinson’s Disease at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital in 2017. She lives and works on the East End.

Jody Cukier
creates sculptures and abstract assemblies from seashells and marine-life fragments, then photographs them to produce archival pigment prints. The works celebrate the texture, shape, and sheer wonder of the design elements found in nature.


New York-based photographer Tria Giovan explores diverse subjects that have included long term projects on New York’s Lower East Side, the Virgin Islands, Rhode Island, Cuba, Sagaponack, and her own Sag Harbor back yard.


Artist Jeremy Grosvenor studied in the periphery of Dusan Makajev and Majorie Keller. His work has been shown at the Hawaii International Film Festival, Millennium Film Archive, Anthropology Film Archives, and It Doesn’t Not Work. Grosvenor currently lives and works in Sagaponack.

John Madere seeks the unique human moments that animate his photographs of compelling subjects from over 50 countries. Madere has won photography awards from The Art Directors Club, the AR 100 Show, The Mead Show, The ARC Awards, Graphis, and American Photography.

Parrish Art Museum

Inspired by the natural setting and artistic life of Long Island’s East End, the Parrish Art Museum illuminates the creative process and how art and artists transform our experiences and understanding of the world and how we live in it. The Museum fosters connections among individuals, art, and artists through care and interpretation of the collection, presentation of exhibitions, publications, educational initiatives, programs, and artists-in-residence. The Parrish is a center for cultural engagement, an inspiration and destination for the region, the nation, and the world.
