On the occasion of its 40th anniversary, The Kitchen presents an exhibition revealing the depth of its early history as a home for both experimental performance-based work and exciting new developments in the visual arts. The show offers a unique perspective on the vibrant, interconnected downtown New York arts scene of the 1970s and early 1980s and features single-channel videos and other artworks presented alongside audio, video, and print documentation related to the institution’s programming during its fifteen years in Soho (1971-85). Included is work, and/or documentation of work, by such artists as Vito Acconci, Laurie Anderson, Karole Armitage, Robert Ashley, Charles Atlas, Beastie Boys, Dara Birnbaum, Eric Bogosian, Trisha Brown, Rhys Chatham, Lucinda Childs, Tony Conrad, Simone Forti, Philip Glass, Gary Hill, Joan Jonas, Bill T. Jones, George Lewis, Arto Lindsay, Robert Longo, Christian Marclay, John Miller, Meredith Monk, Matt Mullican, Tony Oursler, Charlemagne Palestine, Arthur Russell, Carolee Schneeman, Cindy Sherman, Sonic Youth, Elizabeth Streb, Talking Heads, Woody and Steina Vasulka, Lawrence Weiner, and many more who were redefining what art, music, dance, and performance could be.
