Please join us for the third gathering in this year's L.A.B. series, featuring Morgan Bassichis, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Christopher Udemezue, and revolving around the term relation.

The Kitchen L.A.B. (its acronym stands for “language,” “art,” “bodies”) invites artists, authors, and curators to unpack ambiguous vocabularies in contemporary art by responding to them both in conversation and artworks. Each evening creates a kind of hybrid event—and, over time, a hybrid audience—that underlines not only points of commonality among disciplines and generations but also, as important, real differences.

This season draws from Édouard Glissant’s 1990 book, Poetics of Relation, in which he imagined an aesthetically and politically transformative form of relationality, seated in the Caribbean diasporic context, and laid the foundation for such important theoretical concepts as opacity and creolization.

The Kitchen L.A.B. is made possible with support from Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, 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.
