In this iteration of our L.A.B. series, Andrea Crespo, Liz Deschenes, Hayal Pozanti, and Alexander Provan discuss this year's theme: “From Minimalism into Algorithm.” The same words often carry very different meanings for artists working in different fields, while the same maneuvers often signify in different ways according to disciplinary context. The Kitchen L.A.B. (its acronym stands for “language,” “art,” “bodies”) invites artists to unpack such ambiguous vocabularies in contemporary art by responding to them both in conversation and artworks, creating hybrid events—and, over time, hybrid audiences—that underline not only points of commonality among disciplines but also, as important, real differences.

This L.A.B. will take place in The Kitchen's second floor gallery space. Please note that space is limited; admission is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

February 16, 6:30pm 

To see videos of the entire L.A.B. series please visit our Vimeo page.

The Kitchen L.A.B. 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.
