World-renowned artist John Chamberlain of Shelter Island, who passed away last December, is not only the subject of a critically acclaimed retrospective currently running at the Guggenheim Museum, but he is also the focus of a new documentary, HEAARTBEAT, by his stepdaugher filmmaker Alexandra Fairweather. The film will premiere at the opening of Art Southampton July 26. Documenting Chamberlain‘s artistic process and intentions, the film reveals his desire to go out into the world and create art that makes your heart beat. HEAARTBEAT captures the man that the public has not seen before: Chamberlain as a father, a husband, and a friend. On the opening night of Art Southampton there will be a screening to benefit the Ross School’s Chamberlain-Fairweather Scholarship Fund for the Arts. The Fund was created by John Chamberlain, Prudence Fairweather and Alexandra Fairweather in 2007. The next evening, internationally acclaimed director Robert Wilson will host a VIP reception followed by a screening of HEAARTBEAT to launch the Watermill Center/ Chamberlain Residency Fund.
