The day will honor the original Chinatown Yard Alliance with the unveiling of the final phase of Rosten Woo’s, A Park is Made by People, an oral history of the grassroots effort to save this land as much needed open-space. The park will host a panel discussion with all the artists who have contributed work to the park and why these site specific installations are meaningful in the larger context of the local community, park vision, and city as a whole. Other activities will include Ranger led walks, hands on workshops, and activations at each of our public art sites. Please join us in celebrating the victory of the Chinatown Yard Alliance and the power of the people to cause positive change through collective action.
EMPIRE critically examines the principles of archives and anthropology to interrogate the ways histories are told, remembered, and revised. The immersive artwork considers the historical and contemporary effects that colonialism, slavery, trade, and tourism have had on the movement of culture across and beyond borders to better understand the geographic and cultural position of New Orleans in relationship to Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin America. EMPIRE invites viewers to creatively interpret the displayed objects, their connections, and their juxtapositions to generate new meanings.
EMPIRE at Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane University is part of “Fallen Fruit of New Orleans” a suite of site-specific projects taking place throughout New Orleans from June 2017 through June 2018, commissioned and presented by Newcomb Art Museum, A Studio in the Woods, and Pelican Bomb. “Fallen Fruit of New Orleans” was initiated by Pelican Bomb in 2015.
Fallen Fruit is an art collaboration originally conceived in 2004 by David Burns, Matias Viegener, and Austin Young. Since 2013, David and Austin have continued the collaborative work.
