Or, for that matter, with organizations like The Kitchen, whose legacy is entwined with artists whose work sometimes prompts a forceful rethinking of convention, and of culture. (Even in our challenging times, my favorite Kitchen adage might remain one longtime board member telling me, “If I don’t... Read On
