As part of the Summer Institute, The Kitchen presents three public talks in which artists working at the forefront of site and performance speak about their work.

All talks are at 7pm. Tickets are $12 ($25 for all three) and can be purchased through the Kitchen box office. There is no charge for Summer Institue students.

Acclaimed multimedia artist Vito Acconci will address his move from performance to installation to architecture in a talk entitled Performing Architecture. After working with performance art and video in the late 60's and early 70's, Acconci crossed over into architecture and landscape design, and in 1988 started the Acconci Studio, an architecture and design office. The Acconci Studio has recently completed an artificial island in Graz, an adjustable gallery in New York, and a clothing store in Tokyo, and is currently working on a skateboard park in San Juan and a spiraling-ramped house in Calamata.
