On Wednesday September 23, I’ll be participating in a roundtable discussion at NYC art space The Kitchen. 6:30pm. Free!
They say: Please join us as Karen Archey, Jace Clayton, Tere O’Connor, and Cheyney Thompson discuss this year’s theme: “From Minimalism into Algorithm.”
Taking place in The Kitchen theater and gallery spaces throughout the 2015-2016 season, â€œFrom Minimalism into Algorithmâ€ sets contemporary and historical painting, sculpture, performance, and musical composition in counterpoint, proposing a new through-line for art-making during the past half century. Organized collaboratively by The Kitchen and participating artists, the exhibition takes up the legacy of Minimalist art and composition during the 1960s and 1970sâ€”whose seriality was understood by artists and critics to correlate with the eraâ€™s industrial production and increased weight placed on the presence of the individualâ€”as a precedent for reconsidering work by a younger generation for whom serial repetition now corresponds more directly with digital technology and the reconfiguring of our encounters with physical space through networked communication.
