New York, NY, May 23, 2011—The Kitchen presents The View from a Volcano: The Kitchen’s Soho Years, 1971-85, an exhibition featuring single-channel videos and other artworks presented alongside video, audio, and print documentation related to the institution’s programming during its first fifteen years, which were spent in Soho.
There will be an opening reception for The View from a Volcano at The Kitchen (512 West 19th Street) on Wednesday, June 29, 6:00–8:00 P.M.

Curated by Debra Singer, Matthew Lyons, and Lumi Tan as part of The Kitchen’s 40th anniversary season, The View from a Volcano reveals the depth of the organization’s early history as a home for both experimental performance-based work and new developments in the visual arts, offering a unique perspective on the vibrant, interconnected downtown New York arts scene of the 1970s and early 1980s.
The exhibition will include work, and/or documentation of work, by ground-breaking artists who were redefining what art, music, dance, and performance could be.
