The Kitchen: Never Real Objects

This two-day series presents the work of contemporary artists defining the evolving identity of New York’s legendary arts centre, The Kitchen. In recent years, these artists have absorbed and recalibrated The Kitchen’s legacy of cutting-edge experimentation with new media and sound.

Facing drastic shifts in modes of production, mass media and audience, they reflect the responsiveness and fluidity of the institution in its fiftieth year.

Find out more about the screenings (Never Real Objects I and Never Real Objects II) and Jibade-Khalil Huffman’s performance.

A ticket package for the three events in The Kitchen: Never Real Objects series is available for £21 / £15 concessions. To book, please visit a ticket desk or call +44 (0) 20 7887 8888.

Structured into three strands – Pioneers, Artists' Cinema and Counter-Histories – our cinema programme brings together works by artists and filmmakers who seek to challenge the conventions of the moving image and to examine its evolving role in visual culture.

PIONEERS: This series presents retrospectives of filmmakers and artists whose works have proposed new approaches to the moving image.

ARTISTS' CINEMA: This monthly series presents previews, premieres or unique presentations of works by emerging and established artists, followed by a discussion.

COUNTER-HISTORIES: This series presents thematic programmes that challenge stereotypes of movements in film and art history.
