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.

Thursday, May 7, 6pm EDT — Jeanine Oleson (Instagram: @jeanineoleson, Venmo: @jeanine-oleson)

Jeanine Oleson’s Kitchen Broadcast on Thursday, May 7 was timed with the release of the new book Conduct Matters, published by Dancing Foxes Press, Brooklyn. Based on interdisciplinary artist Oleson’s 2017 exhibition project at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, Conduct Matters presents the artist’s ongoing, sharply absurdist research into and response to copper production in 21st-century capitalism. Meditating on the confused ways in which the human is entwined with contemporary materials, Oleson grapples, through objects and performances, with the relationship between representation and art at a time when our activities and communications are more than ever mediated through the copper-dependent digital. For her presentation for Kitchen Broadcast, Oleson and ongoing collaborators and performers Beth Griffith, Lisa Reynolds, and Diwa Tamrong used the space of the screen to reexamine language and ideas about subject and alienation, working to find ways the screen might be an embodied site for performance.

This performance builds on Oleson’s earlier work Crossed Wires (2017); to watch this video, click here.

ARTIST BIOS

The Blow is Melissa Dyne and Khaela Maricich. A shape-shifting entity, The Blow has taken various forms over time and manifests in an array of media, employing popular music as a vehicle for broader explorations. Operating between contexts and genres, the duo works with sound recording, performance, installation, writing and physical media, aiming to address and expand the limitations encountered within each framework. They have been curating WOMANPRODUCER.com, a multi-platform archive of female music producers, engineers and sonic innovators, since 2014. Their performances have been presented at The Kitchen, The Wexner Center, Artists Space, The Warhol Museum, On The Boards, and Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, as well as in traditional music venues such as The Henry Fonda Theater, Great American Music Hall, Joe’s Pub, and The Gramercy Theater. They live and work in New York City.

Jeanine Oleson is an interdisciplinary artist working with images, materiality and language, which she forms into complex and humorous objects, images, videos, and performances. She attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Rutgers University, and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Oleson has exhibited and performed at venues including Cubitt Gallery, London; Hammer Museum, LA; Coreana Museum, Seoul; Atlanta Contemporary, Atlanta; SculptureCenter, NY; Pierogi, Brooklyn; New Museum, NY; Exit Art, NY; Beta Local, San Juan, Puerto Rico; Commonwealth & Council, LA; X-Initiative, NY; Grand Arts, Kansas City, MO; Socrates Sculpture Park, NY; Diverseworks, Houston, TX; L.A.C.E., Los Angeles; Monya Rowe Gallery, NY; Samson Projects, Boston, MA; Art in General, NY; Participant, Inc., NY; MoMA/PS1, NY; and White Columns, NY. She published two books about performance projects in 2012, What? and The Greater New York Smudge Cleanse, and her recent book, Conduct Matters, was published by Dancing Foxes Press in spring 2020. She is also a lead collaborator since 2013 on a participatory project, “Photo Requests from Solitary” that provides images to people held in solitary confinement and supports advocacy efforts to end the practice in US prisons. Oleson teaches at Rutgers University and lives in Brooklyn, NY.

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.
