As I wrote about last month, Fallen Fruit is presenting a year-long exhibition at Los Angeles County Museum of Art entitled EATLACMA and on Sunday, June 27, the concurrent exhibition, the Fruit of LACMA opens and includes picnic on opening day.
As they say on their web site, " EATLACMA is a year-long investigation into food, art, culture and politics. Fusing the richness of LACMA's permanent collection with the ephemerality of food and the natural growth cycle, EATLACMA's projects consider food as a common ground that explores the social role of art and ritual in community and human relationships."
EATLACMA consists of seasonal, artist's gardens planted throughout the museum campus. These include "Food Pyramid" by Didier Hess, "Promiscuous Production: Breeding is Bittersweet" by The National Bitter Melon Council, and "Public Fruit Theater" by Fallen Fruit—David Burns, Austin Young, and Matias Viegener.
The Fruit of LACMA runs from June 27 through November 7, 2010, culminating in a day-long event (November 7, 2010) with over fifty artists and collectives re-imagining the entire museum's campus and galleries.
For More Info.
