No Longer Showing.
Taking place in The Kitchen theater and gallery spaces throughout the 2015–2016 season, “From Minimalism into Algorithm” sets contemporary and historical painting, sculpture, performance, and musical composition in counterpoint, proposing a new through-line for art-making during the past half century. Organized collaboratively by The Kitchen and participating artists, the exhibition takes up the legacy of Minimalist art and composition during the 1960s and ’70s as a precedent for reconsidering work by a younger generation for whom serial repetition corresponds more directly with digital technology and, moreover, its reconfiguring of our encounters with physical space through networked communication.
The exhibition will unfold in three parts throughout the winter. Artists shown in Phase 1 include Lucinda Childs and Philip Glass, Tony Conrad, Charles Gaines, Jacob Kassay, Agnieszka Kurant, Zoe Leonard, Mary Lucier, Donald Judd, Vera Molnar, Richard Serra and Carlotta Schoolman, Paul Sietsema, Laurie Spiegel, and Cheyney Thompson. Artists included in Phase 2 are Andrea Crespo, Liz Deschenes, John McCracken, Hayal Pozanti, and Seth Price. Phase 3 additionally includes Tauba Auerbach, Wade Guyton, James Hoff, Jennie C. Jones, Christine Sun Kim and Thomas Mader, Helen Marten and Trevor Paglen.
