No Longer Showing.
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.
From fall 2019 through spring 2020, 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?
Building on three L.A.B. conversations that took place in the fall, the series continues with a discussion among E. Jane, Jamian Juliano-Villani, and Wayne Koestenbaum. The speakers will address the ways they draw on personas and practices of personal storytelling to generate—and regenerate—their work.
