No Longer Showing.

In anticipation of our 50th anniversary in 2021, The Kitchen is proud to host 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.

The next exchange in this series takes place online between celebrated artists Moor Mother and Vernon Reid, whose experiences with The Kitchen’s program span decades.

Wednesday, June 24, 6pm EDT

About the 50th Anniversary Conversation Series: 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. The first event in the series featured Dara Birnbaum and Sondra Perry In Conversation in February 2019, and the second in the series, a Choreographers Convening, was postponed in response to COVID-19 (a new date for this event will be announced in the future).

Moor Mother and Vernon Reid In Conversation 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.
