Eye on Culture: Kitchen Art

This week’s Goings On About Town section opens with a trompe-l’oeil photograph taken by Martine Fougeron during the gala for MOMA’s “Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen,” which explores “the twentieth century transformation of the kitchen as a reflection of social, economic and political change.” It’s on view through March 14th.
