Signed photogravure print by Robert Gober

On the occasion of The Kitchen's Spring Gala, honoring Robert Gober, Matthew Marks Gallery and the artist have made available this untitled photogravure print to benefit The Kitchen.

The print’s image was originally produced by Gober for a postcard announcing performances by choreographer Johanna Boyce, “Out of the Ordinary,” which took place at The Kitchen in 1980. In this work, Gober himself performed Boyce, juggling coins while wearing flip-flops.

Gober is one of the most celebrated artists working today. The Kitchen is proud to celebrate his work and legacy that has been so impactful on our history
