Katherine Hubbard: Bring your own lights

Kh Image Kitchen

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

In this new body of work, photography, writing, and performance come together to place the mechanics and processes of analog photography in relation to new, possible narratives about cities, class, and image-making itself. One starting point is The Kitchen’s building, both its original function as an ice storage facility in service to an ice plant next door and its current uses. Katherine Hubbard asks, “If narrative acknowledges that everything is scripted, then how do we begin to re-script? How is photography failing us in our efforts to do so and how is this failing a social issue having nothing to do with images of the world and having everything to do with how we see the world itself?” Curated by Matthew Lyons.

September 8–October 22, 2016

Gallery hours: Tuesday–Saturday, 11am–6pm

Performances in the gallery: Friday, October 14 and Friday, October 21 at 7pm. FREE. Capacity is limited. First-come, first-served.

Katherine Hubbard: Bring your own lights is made possible with support from Jerome Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Additional support provided by Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York.
