Performances
Performances by Andrew Lampert

Inspired by the Whitney’s offices, storage spaces, shop, and its restaurant, Untitled, artist Andrew Lampert presents an immersive evening of live performance and culinary invention. In Lampert’s words, the evening will be an earnest attempt to forge a new model for museum-going that, at long last, acknowledges the café and bookstore as primary components of an audience’s experience. A dinner-length experiment, SYNONYM FOR UNTITLED is built around a tasting menu specially prepared by Chef Chris Bradley. Lampert created a grocery list/score for Bradley that makes associative pairings between artists in the Whitney’s collection and ingredients (Ed Ruscha is butter, Robert Mapplethorpe a jalapeno pepper). Neither a reality show nor dinner theater, the event features contributions from poet Mónica de la Torre, cellist Okkyung Lee, and violinist C. Spencer Yeh. Expect multi-sensory stimulation and simultaneity galore.

Entry to the performance is free with Museum admission. Restaurant seating is first-come, first-served, and will begin at 5:45 pm and continue until 8:15 pm. All food and drink are additional costs.

Please note: Pay-what-you-wish begins at 6 pm on Fridays.

Members enjoy complimentary and express access to the Museum.
