About the 50th Anniversary Conversation Series: In anticipation of our 50th anniversary in 2021, The Kitchen is proud to begin a series of conversations among artists across generations who will discuss their work and their perspectives on the organization’s evolving role in the cultural landscape. These programs create opportunities to draw out connections within The Kitchen’s community and to reflect on the organization’s history through the lens of first-hand accounts.

This program is made possible with support from Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides 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.
