Taking place in The Kitchen theater and gallery spaces throughout the 2015–2016 season, “From Minimalism into Algorithm” 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 ’70s as a precedent for reconsidering work by a younger generation for whom serial repetition corresponds more directly with digital technology and, moreover, its reconfiguring of our encounters with physical space through networked communication.
The exhibition will unfold in three parts throughout the winter. Artists previously shown in Phase 1 include Lucinda Childs and Donald Judd, among others. Artists included in Phase 2 are Tony Conrad, Andrea Crespo, Liz Deschenes, Charles Gaines, Jacob Kassay, Agnieszka Kurant, Zoe Leonard, Mary Lucier, John McCracken, Vera Molnar, Hayal Pozanti, Seth Price, Richard Serra and Carlota Schoolman, Paul Sietsema, Laurie Spiegel, andCheyney Thompson. Phase 3 will additionally include Tauba Auerbach, Wade Guyton, James Hoff, Jennie C. Jones, Christine Sun Kim and Thomas Mader, and Helen Marten.
