The Kitchen is a non-profit art space in New York City originally founded in 1971 in Greenwich Village. It takes its name from its original location in the kitchen of the Mercer Arts Center. It was initially intended as a space for the exhibition of video art, the Kitchen soon expanded to include other forms of art including performance, exhibition, music and dance. Notable Kitchen alumni include Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, Rocco Di Pietro, John Moran, Peter Greenaway, Ridge Theater, The Future Sound of London, Leisure Class, Brian Eno, and Cindy Sherman and many more. In this clip we get an inside look at The Beastie Boys well before they had any discernible talent.
