Cultured in the Hamptons

Get the VIP Treatment Out East with Cultured

August 13 – 15th, 2021

Join us from August 13 to 15 for a weekend in the Hamptons, exclusively for Cultured VIPs. Get insider access to artist studio visits, special museum events, and exhibit tours, following in the creative legacy of the beachside haven.

The Hamptons have a long legacy as a home to creatives. Artists such as Jackson Pollack and Lee Krasner, Willem and Elaine de Kooning, Roy Lichtenstein, and many others made their world-renowned work in East Hampton. Today, contemporary artists in a variety of media follow in these legends’ footsteps, finding inspiration in the Hamptons’ proximity to New York City, but living and working in studios that favor the dappled light of the dune and ocean landscapes over the daily hustle and bustle of New York City. The depth and breadth of the Hamptons artist community provides food for the soul.

For the weekend commencing Thursday, August 12, and wrapping up on Sunday, August 15, Cultured is hosting an exclusive experience that will bring Cultured VIP members directly to the studios of some of the most exciting creatives in the Hamptons today.

Cultured VIP is an immersive content experience that includes a one-year subscription to Cultured magazine, exclusive Cultured merch, passes to art and design fairs in select cities and invitations to events all over the United States. For this art-filled members-only weekend, we will visit three women artists who have been living and working out East for over 30 years. Each individual’s practice brings their unique vision to New York in dialogue with legendary artists of the past.

Alice Hope, Toni Ross, and Bastienne Schmidt initially crossed paths years ago and have since not only deepened their friendship, but also formed the collective No W here in 2020, responding to a larger sense of collective isolation of COVID-19. By safely coming together with the intention of making work meant to be shown in a group dynamic, while also working independently, they are communicating with a historical dialogue that extends through decades of artists coming together to make engaging work reflective of their time.

The three artists spend their time year-round in the Hamptons, in relative quietude during the winter months. This past year, while many of the streets of Manhattan vacated due to the pandemic, those out East were fortunate that much of the art in New York City came to them. Prestigious galleries found new homes closer to collectors, and while artists were still isolated in their studios, new bodies of work were made prolifically. Our VIP tour will provide exclusive access to some of this work, not yet shown publicly.

Coinciding with the studio visits, Cultured VIPs are encouraged to traverse highlighted exhibitions at The Ranch, Watermill Center, the village of East Hampton, and the Parrish Art Museum.
