No Longer Showing.
In this iteration of our L.A.B. series, Hal Foster, James Hoff, Michelle Kuo, and Laurie Spiegel discuss this year's theme: “From Minimalism into Algorithm.” The same words often carry very different meanings for artists working in different fields, while the same maneuvers often signify in different ways according to disciplinary context. The Kitchen L.A.B. (its acronym stands for “language,” “art,” “bodies”) invites artists to unpack such ambiguous vocabularies in contemporary art by responding to them both in conversation and artworks, creating hybrid events—and, over time, hybrid audiences—that underline not only points of commonality among disciplines but also, as important, real differences.
The event will be live streamed starting at 6:30pm EDT:
March 30, 6:30pm
To see videos of the entire L.A.B. series please visit our Vimeo page.
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.
