Night Kitchen Under the Tabletop

Inspired by the children’s storybook written by the late Maurice Sendak, where a boy dreams of surreal, late-night experiences inside a bakery kitchen, Night Kitchen welcomes the audience into OCAD University after dark.

Responding to the past and present of this site, these performance and installation projects address the systems at work within the institution.

Each artist offers an immersive experience. Their site-specific works are tailored to interior spaces, reflecting on the systems of the institution and its architecture.

Three artists’ projects become part of the infrastructure to playfully feed audience members through registration, structural procedures and doctrines.

Using cooking and digestion as metaphors, Night Kitchen invites a reflection on the processes, hierarchy and identities seemingly inherent in art and educational institutions.


Christina Zeidler will perform with her interactive video installation "Rehearsal for an Endurance Performance of the S.C.U.M. Manifesto, Ukulele Concerto in C" at 7:30 p.m., 9 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.
