The Kitchen Lab
Tuesday September 27th - 6:30pm - 8:30pm - The Kitchen Lab
512 W 19th St, New York, NY
If you're looking for a break from your average Tuesday, but down want to spend any $$$, listen up. The Kitchen L.A.B. (its acronym stands for “language,” “art,” “bodies”) invites artists, authors, and curators to unpack ambiguous vocabularies in contemporary art by responding to them both in conversation and artworks. Each evening creates a kind of hybrid event—and, over time, a hybrid audience—that underlines not only points of commonality among disciplines and generations but also, as important, real differences. This Lab revolves around the term "Position" featuring the works of D D Dorvillier Dorvillier, Andrew Durbin, Katherine Hubbard, and Thomas Lax. So if you're doing nothing on Tuesday, do something instead.
