No Longer Showing.

Playing on entwined relationships of presence and absence, the legendary Belgian filmmaker’s latest installation features video shot at her residences in different countries. During the exhibition’s opening day, Akerman will be recorded in The Kitchen’s second-floor space reading from her story My Mother Laughs. This video will join the others, introducing a kind of psycho-geography for domestic settings at once near and far.

Curated by Tim Griffin and Lumi Tan

Exhibition Hours: Tues–Fri, 12–6pm; Sat 11–6pm

This exhibition is made possible with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Dedalus Foundation, Inc., and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
