Inaugurated in 2012, The Kitchen L.A.B. (Language, Art, Bodies) is an annual series that brings together artists and writers across disciplines to unpack how the meaning of artistic and cultural terms may shift—and become more resonant or ambiguous—over time. 

This year, the series considers the term “regeneration” as it pertains to creating something new; as it relates to recycling or re-purposing historic issues or material; and, within the broader cultural and political landscape, as it intersects with the historical question of whether to bring about change through revolution or reform. What tools from the past remain effective, and how should they be turned over to something new? 

The L.A.B. season continues with a conversation among Andrea Geyer, Sarah Schulman, and James Allister Sprang that explores the regenerative potential of intergenerational dialogues and inquiries into established lineages. Referring to both recent projects and their broader interests, the speakers will discuss how their engagements with individuals and practices from different eras inform their own perspectives.
