In the fall of 2005, The Kitchen presented a new video exhibition by artist Dara Friedman, titled Sunset Island. The installation consisted of two screens, one featuring a female actor and the other a male actor. The performers asked each other—and by extension, the audience—a series of questions, some philosophical and personal, others seemingly trivial. As the back and forth unfolded, the audience was exposed to a fraught relationship riddled with a mixture of emotions, including jealousy, anger, and love. This exhibition was curated by Ali Subotnick.
