Room was a performance and video installation commissioned by The Kitchen for Wynne Greenwood’s art-punk band Tracy + The Plastics. For the week-long residency, the gallery space became an immersive installation that emulated a living room, using material such as wood, foam, carpet, and video projection, constructed in collaboration with sculpture and installation artist Fawn Krieger. Room served as a video installation open to the public by day, and as a stage for the band’s performances by night.


The installation and performances addressed topics of gender identity and feminism by staging a space that was intended to hearken back to 1970’s radical feminism and the dens and basements that women would gather in to hold consciousness-raising meetings.
