From the Archives: Joan Logue

By Keenan Saiz

Jul 13, 2020

“From the Archives” is a series that spotlights The Kitchen’s history. As a complement to our Archive Website, these posts offer focused reflections on the artists, exhibitions, events, and institutional practices that have defined and shaped The Kitchen since its founding in 1971. This From the Archives post is written by Keenan Saiz, Winter/Spring 2020 Curatorial Intern. ARTISTS ARE SKILLED AT ADAPTING to ever-changing conditions in society and technology.

Kitchen Memories: Summer of Alternative Histories

By Lauren Cronk

Jun 29, 2020

“Kitchen Memories” is a new series of first-hand reflections on past programming. Spotlighting a diverse range of perspectives from our community—including those of current and former staff members and artists—these posts reveal the ways that The Kitchen’s events, performances, and exhibitions inform these individuals’ work and thinking. This Kitchen Memories post is written by Lauren Cronk, Manager, Individual Giving and Events. WE WALKED DOWN TENTH AVENUE in the early afternoon, sun overhead with no shade cover from trees or buildings. On many blocks you could see directly out to the Hudson. We may have stopped into a few commercial galleries along the way; I truly can’t recall. But when we reached 19th Street we headed straight for 512, into the lobby, then the elevator,... Read On

The Kitchen’s Upcoming Programs and Actions

By The Kitchen

Jun 22, 2020

Dear Friends, In recent weeks, The Kitchen has paused its programming in solidarity with protesters throughout the world calling for justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, Layleen Polanco, Dominique “Rem’Mie” Fells, Riah Milton, and Rayshard Brooks, among countless others whose lives have been taken at the hands of police brutality and white supremacy. We reiterate our statement that Black Lives Matter. And we reaffirm our belief that serious reform is needed to address the pervasive structural inequities embedded in social systems, both within culture broadly and, closer to home, within our own organization as one that is devoted to rethinking and reorienting the spaces we share. As a small team that works closely with our artists, we understand this is... Read On
