No Longer Showing.

Kitchen Broadcast is a new livestream performance series taking place every Tuesday and Thursday at 6pm EDT.

Our artist community has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis through the sudden loss of jobs and presenting opportunities, and we have postponed our previously scheduled Winter/Spring 2020 events. During uncertain times, our commitment to bringing artists and audiences together hasn’t changed, even if the circumstances have. Since gathering at The Kitchen is not currently possible, we have invited artists to connect from their homes to yours, through any form they see fit.

We are happy to welcome you to experience these Kitchen Broadcasts and to join the dialogue around them on our social media channels. To get announcements and updates on the series, follow us on Instagram and Facebook or sign up for our mailing list here. To contact us with questions about Kitchen Broadcast or to submit questions to the participating artists, please email broadcast@thekitchen.org.

MV Carbon is a multi-disciplinary artist and professor. Carbon’s work encompasses live performance, filmmaking, sound art, painting, music composition, and multi-media installation. Her work explores interchangeability, the human mechanism, perceptive states of consciousness, habitat, and the empirical force of nature. Her live performances embrace the use of sonic space, utilizing feedback and natural reverberation, with the use of electric cello, amplified objects, oscillators, reel-to-reel tape machines, and hand-constructed instruments. She reinterprets the physical form associated with musicianship, often incorporating extended techniques into performances and orchestrations.

Carbon has been awarded residencies at Elektronmusikstudion, Issue Project Room, National Sawdust, Pioneer Works, Q02, Roulette, and The Clocktower Gallery. She has composed music for the String Orchestra of Brooklyn, and has records released on 5RC (Metalux), Atavistic Records (Bride of No No), Discombobulate (solo), Ecstatic Peace (solo), Hanson (Metalux), and Load Records (Metalux). She has performed at spaces including Casa Des Artes, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Dia Art Center, Harvard Film Archive, Harvestworks, Nefertiti Jazz Club, Performa, PS1-MoMA, RIXC, Socrates Sculpture Park, The Copenhagen Music Theater, The Guggenheim BMW Lab, The Kitchen, The Knockdown Center, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art (MI), The Sage, The Stone, The Swiss Institute, The Tate Modern, ULU, Unsound Festival, and Worm. Her work has been exhibited / screened at galleries including D’Amelio Gallery, Fridman Gallery, Lucien Terras Gallery, and Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery.

Patrick Higgins is a New York-based composer/performer of experimental music. Higgins has composed works for some of the nation’s leading ensembles, ranging from chamber orchestra works, percussion cycles, and string quartets to smaller ensembles and soloists. He has scored works for television, museum exhibitions, and films (both short-form and feature-length). Higgins plays guitar and composes in ZS. As a soloist, he performs both classical acoustic and electric guitar in genre-bending contexts, utilizing extended technique and electronic processing. 

Higgins’s music has been performed internationally in over twenty countries, including performances at some of the world’s leading concert venues and music festivals: Big Ears Festival, The Queens Museum, Merkin Concert Hall (Ecstatic Music Fest), Issue Project Room, Roulette, The Stone, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Tribeca Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, ICA Boston, Hopscoth Festival, Unsound Festival (Poland), le Guess Who? (Holland), Club Unit (Tokyo), Vacant Gallery (Tokyo), Donau Festival (Austria), Incubate (Netherlands), Berghain (Germany), Magazin 4 (Belgium), Sonic (France), Puxian Grand Theater (China), and many more.

Kitchen Broadcast is made possible with the support of the NYC COVID-19 Response and Impact Fund in The New York Community Trust; annual grants from Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation and Howard Gilman 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.
