Upcoming Events at The Kitchen

Mai-Thu Perret:
An Evening of the Book and Other Stories

January 11 – March 1, 2008
Opening Reception: Friday, January 11, 6-8PM

Curated by Debra Singer and Rashida Bumbray
Working primarily in sculpture and installation,
Geneva-based artist
Mai-Thu Perret creates works interrogating aspects of
contemporary
consumerist culture through the lens of utopian
revolutionary ideals
of early 20th century avant-garde artistic movements. For
her first
New York solo exhibition, Perret will present the US
premiere of her
new video, An Evening of the Book, as well as related
sculptural
works. The video, and show as a whole, takes its title and
inspiration
from a 1924 agit-prop Russian theater work that included a
set design
by Varvara Stepanova, an influential artist of the Russian
avant-garde
whose work epitomized the Constructivist tenet that art
should have a
social purpose. Incorporating abstract choreographed
movement, the
video evokes a dreamy logic as a group of women are seen at
work,
play, and rest. Through ghostly layers of past and present,
this new
project draws attention to how historical fragments can
continue to be
an ongoing active force in shaping the present, signifying
something
new in the changed context of today.

Exhibition Hours: Tue-Fri, 12-6pm; Sat 11-6pm FREE

This exhibition is made possible with generous support from
Pro
Helvetia, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts,
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.
********************************
Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber:
Rise of the Mojosexual Cotillion
with special guest Sparlha Swa

January 18 and 19 (Friday and Saturday), 8pm
Tickets: $10

Curated by Rashida Bumbray

Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber is a New York-based,
twenty-plus member ensemble known for improvisatory
orchestral performances that mash up all manner of vocal,
instrumental, and electronic music. Drawing from diverse
influences ranging from Billie Holiday and Morton Feldman
to Jimi Hendrix, Divine Styler, and the Bomb Squad, the
group is led by founder and conductor Greg Tate. For these
evenings, the group will perform a mojosexual-inflected
suite of trans-genre (and trance-inducing) works that are
part acid-funk, part-hip hop mixed with layers of
psychedelic grooves. The evening features performers: Rene
Akan, Maya Azucena, Mikel Banks, Paula Henderson, Asim
Barnes, Lisala Beatty, Jason DiMatteo, Abby Dobson, Justice
Dilla-X, Chris Eddleton, Avram Fefer, Trevor Holder, Jimmy
Lee, Bruce Mack, Jared Michael Nickerson, Myles Reilly,
Catherine Sikora, Josh Sinton, David Smith, Jeff Smith, and
Greg Tate.

The evenings open with a performance by emerging songwriter
and vocalist Sparlha Swa, who offers her evocatively
lyrical alternative music that is sparse, powerful, and
direct. Swa on vocals and guitar will be accompanied by
Shree Shaym (Bass), Amali Premawardhana (Cello), and Kevin
Raczka (Drums).

This program is made possible with generous support from
The Amphion Foundation, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the
Visual Arts, the Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, the
Aaron Copland Fund for Music, The New York State Music
Fund, 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.
