ASSEMBLY

Kitchen Webmockup

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

Over three weekends in June, The Kitchen's building will contain three empty floors that will be stripped of their identity of gallery, theater, and office space; each floor will be activated sequentially through custom sound and video systems by musicians, dancers, performance artists and DJs, incorporating artists who have worked with The Kitchen over decades, as well as those new to the space. ASSEMBLY aims to promote thinking about access, collective thought, and recognizing how sound/music and the structure of certain spaces lend themselves to a nuanced and rich cultural exchange. By recasting the use of our building to more fluidly generate these ideas, The Kitchen can meditate on how non-profit institutions should represent, and be shaped by, their publics in the present day. Organized by Kevin Beasley, Lumi Tan, Tim Griffin and Nicole Kaack. 

Participating artists include Suzi Analogue, King Britt presents Moksha Black, Richard Kennedy, HPrizm, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Lafawndah, Mhysa, Jason Moran, NAR, Angie Pittman, stud1nt, Logan Takahashi, David Thomson, Wetwarewhoisskitzo, and Pamela Z.

Tickets: $10 General / $8 Members. Children under 18 free (reservation recommended).
