Kitsch-in is an exhibition exploring the revival and recurrence of mid-century images of home-making, food, and the kitchen in contemporary visual culture. Images of housewives and retro kitchen couture have been a key point of reference for artists of all genders and races in both critical and celebratory investigations of nostalgic experience of food and domesticity. Referencing the midcentury modern woman who could “have it all” with the help of 20th century kitchen products (TV dinners, processed food, dishwashers, and convection ovens), this exhibition broadens the notion of the kitchen as a place of collective nostalgia and reappropriation.

Kitsch-in is being presented in tandem with Root Division's annual fundraiser TASTE 2014.
