“Visions of Plenty” looks at postwar kitchens, from the colorful materials and fully-automated appliances of the 1950s to the more environmentally conscious design of the 1970s. Through photographs, prints and films by artists like Andy Warhol and Cindy Sherman, “Kitchen Sink Dramas” examines the kitchen as artistic subject, and how it has been used to address larger themes of politics, economics and gender.
“Counter Space” continues through March 14, 2011, so there’s plenty of time to find your way to New York to see this compelling exhibition. If you've already been, please let us know your thoughts!
