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.
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 Chris Eddleton, Avram Fefer, Rachel Eliza Griffiths, and Sara Magenheimer that focuses on how language can be deployed in art and writing to spark regeneration. The speakers will refer to their interdisciplinary practices while considering the potential for words to be rearranged or recontextualized in order to give rise to new meanings.
