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?

In the sixth L.A.B. event of the year, Lauren Bakst, Felix Bernstein, Narcissister, and Gabe Rubin will come together for a conversation focusing on regeneration’s relevance within the realm of performance.

To see videos of the entire L.A.B. series from 2012–present, 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.
