press release

The New York-based artists in this group exhibition create performance-based videos,photographs, and sculptural installations that experiment with various approaches to presenting and documenting durational actions or live events. Some of the artists structure their work around carefully choreographed, task-based activities relating to self-imposed constraints, while others develop more intricate, narrative scenarios responding to a given environment. In both cases, the artists alternatively explore a range of issues relating to labor and stamina, risk and vulnerability, as well as questions of identity that together form of a larger investigation into the physical and mental conditions of contemporary life.

The Kitchen will host a free panel discussion with the artists on Tuesday, October 13 that will address various approaches, methods, and implications relating to the documentation of performance, which is an underlying concern within many works in the show. In conjunction with the exhibition, Aki Sasamoto will perform in the gallery at 7pm on Tuesday, September 15 and Tuesday, October 6.

This exhibition is made possible with generous support from the Dedalus Foundation, Inc., and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
