From writing to performance, Christopher Knowles submerged himself in verbal and visual manifestations of words, which served as the foundation of his experimental works. “A Solo Piece” was an original theatrical work composed and conducted by the New York-based artist. “A Solo Piece” was performed twice at The Kitchen; the first took place on May 4, 1976, whereas the second was on May 7, 1976. In addition to “A Solo Piece”, a text-based exhibition called “A Typing Work Show” featured Knowles’ poem/songs, typed designs and videotapes made on a character generator. Inviting viewer to explore communication and sign systems, “A Typing Work Show” was Knowles’ first exhibition at The Kitchen.
