Barthélémy Toguo at Parrish Art Museum

Until October 2018, the Parrish Art Museum is presenting The Beauty of Our Voice, a major solo show of French-Cameroonian artist Barthélémy Toguo. The internationally renowned artist addresses issues of migration, mobility, colonialism, race, and the relationship between the global north in his multi-disciplinary works.

Granted the 2018 Inga Maren Otto Fellowship, Toguo has created a comprehensive body of work during a residency at The Watermill Center. This unique new collaboration between the museum and the Watermill lead to this exhibition, on view from August 5 to October 14, 2018. This project expands his gaze to America. Selected pieces include new watercolor paintings, photography from the series Stupid African President, postcards from his international Head Above Water project that involved Hamptons residents, and new versions of his installations Mobile Cafeteria and Road to Exile, adapted to the Parrish.

This partnership reflects the Parrish’s Platform mission to present process-based projects by a single artist who considers the entire Museum as a potential site for works that transcend disciplinary boundaries, encouraging new ways to experience art, architecture, and the landscape.

This exhibition is supported by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S.
