No Longer Showing.
Conceptual artist Danh Vō collaborates with Xiu Xiu (Jamie Stewart, Shayna Dunkelman, and Ches Smith) for this gallery exhibition conceived as a stage for their work’s own production. Vō travels with two gold pounders from Thailand—where the gold leaf for many of his pieces is made—to work in the space alongside Xiu Xiu's percussion-based compositions. Together they will generate syncopated compositions with the pounders’ rhythms. Set against a backdrop of Vō’s finished artwork, they will create a new work in real time.

Last month, The Kitchen was thrilled to celebrate artists Nan Goldin and Lydia Lunch at our 2018 Spring Gala. During the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, icons Goldin and Lunch were vanguards of post-punk New York. Both women have presented their work at The Kitchen throughout the years, consistently re...Read On
