The Kitchen Gala 2021 NYC photos by Cheryl Gorski

The Kitchen’s 2021 Gala, Honoring Debbie Harry and Cindy Sherman and performances by Bri Blvck, Ravi Coltrane, L’Rain, and Moses Sumney

Cindy Sherman and Debbie Harry‘s visions-one ironically shape-shifting, the other, equally ironically, grounded within her unmistakable image and sound-brilliantly disrupted the historic flow, respectively, of photography and music history.

Both artists’ own pasts intersect with The Kitchen’s: Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills made their New York premiere at The Kitchen in 1980, and Harry participated the same year in Dubbed in Glamour, a three-day extravaganza of music, performance, and video organized by Edit DeAk at The Kitchen. (These tributes were postponed from last year’s gala, which could not take place due to the pandemic)

The gala raises funds for The Kitchen which is one of New York City’s oldest nonprofit spaces, showing innovative work by emerging and established artists across disciplines.
