"The Kitchen"

April 16th, 2011
At "The Kitchen" in Chelsea scholars met the artist, Kenya (Robinson), featured in the gallery. She spoke of her featured work, Kenya Eats A Cracker.

On this rainy day, the scholars walked from The New School to the gallery.

Robinson's work raised many questions for the scholars about race and how it relates to her work.

Kenya talks about her process in installing her performance piece.
