This event has ended.

Artists Space, in collaboration with acclaimed theater critic Hilton Als, presents a series of live performances, readings, film screenings, and an accompanying archival exhibition that celebrates the work of visionary playwright Adrienne Kennedy. Transforming Artists Space’s lower level into a theater, screening room, and exhibition space, this multi-format program comprehensively engages Kennedy’s working trajectory in relation to the literary figures, spatial environments, and historical events that preoccupy her writing.

One sits at the desk and applies makeup while the other stands to their left, gazing beyond the image.]
