EMPIRE- EXHIBITION PARTY

Join us! December 8 at Newcomb Art Museum!

 

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.

Stoneview receives Public Art Network Award!

Stoneview Nature Center: Civic Art Project Recognized at American for the Arts one of the 49 outstanding public art projects 2017!  -Civic Art by Fallen Fruit, David Burns and Austin Young.

 

On Friday, June 15, Americans for the Arts honored 49 outstanding public arts projects created in 2017, including the civic artwork at the Stoneview Nature Center. The projects were chosen through the Public Art Network Year in Review program, the only national program that specifically recognizes the most compelling public art. Selected by public art experts, the roster of projects was unveiled at Americans for the Arts’ (AFTA) Annual Convention in Denver.

Information can be found HERE at Los Angele County Arts Commision.

Details can be found HERE at Americans For The Arts.

Initiated as a Design-Build competition by the County of LA, the Stoneview Nature Center project invited pre-qualified teams to transform a five-acre brownfield site into a highly sustainable nature center in the Blair Hills neighborhood of Culver City, CA. As an important node along the five mile “Park to Playa Trail”, the 4,000 square foot facility and surrounding gardens were envisioned as a place for community to come together and engage both socially and architecturally.

Congratulations to the entire team!

“The 5-acre Stoneview Nature Center two miles west of Stocker — and itself a stop on the Park-To-Playa Trail — sees Fallen Fruit’s integral design elements in a more conceptual but still absolutely edible landscape integrated into the new construction’s progressive municipal design/build award. Co-proposed with Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects, AHBE Landscape Design, and graphics by Omnivore, the site is a sustainable, multi-use vision for a community center featuring outdoor kitchen and gathering areas, art installations based on the neighborhood’s history, and at its heart, Fallen Fruit’s organic rainbow of living colors, rich symbolism, and narrative in the form of free harvests of pomegranates, lemons, oranges, avocados, grapes, berries and figs. “ – Shana Nys Dambrot, Huffington Post.

“THIS PROJECT IS A WIN FOR COUNTY RESIDENTS ALL AROUND. IT WILL EXPOSE YOUTH TO NATURE, CREATE JOBS, AND SERVE AS A PROTECTIVE HABITAT FOR WILDLIFE. ” – Mark Ridley-Thomas, LA County Board of Supervisors

EMPIRE- opening reception April 13

Join us for the opening reception celebrating  Fallen Fruit’s upcoming exhibition EMPIRE!  at Newcomb Art Museum
 
Celebrating the New Orleans tricentennial, EMPIRE is an art installation by LA-based artists Fallen Fruit, David Allen Burns and Austin Young, commissioned and presented by Newcomb Art Museum, A Studio in the Woods and Pelican Bomb. Through this assembly of over 300 objects, the artists will transform the entire museum into one immersive artwork that explores the history of people and place in terms of cultural legacy, historical narrative, and social constructs.
 
The project uses objects culled from the diverse archives and collections across campus, including art, sound, documents of record, material culture, and artifacts. It activates objects held by the Amistad Research Center, Hogan Jazz Archive, Latin American Library, Louisiana Research Collection, Middle American Research Institute, Newcomb Art Museum, Newcomb College Institute, Royal D. Suttkus Fish Collection / Tulane University Biodiversity Research Institute, and Southeastern Architectural Archive, among other campus collections, shifting the lexicon of historical meanings into one work of art.

Fallen Fruit performance and artwork at The Bunker

FALLEN FRUIT performs FRUIT COCKTAILS to celebrate the opening of  Beth Rudin DeWoody’s private art space, ‘The Bunker’ in West Palm Beach, Saturday, December 2, 2017.

The new Wallpaper Pattern for West Palm Beach commissioned by Beth Rudin DeWoody for her new private art space, The Bunker.

FRUIT COCKTAILS is a project by Fallen Fruit, David Burns and Austin Young, in which we select fruit we discover in a neighborhood, or on a certain block or street, infuse it in vodka or tequila,.   What FRUIT COCKTAILS  ask to participants  is tinged with a bit of irony: can you capture the essence of a place in a bottle?  Regardless of the answer, we hope that by capturing the character of this neighborhood’s best qualities we remind everyone that celebrating the local and and the values of protecting the environment around us.

The bottles of fruit infused  FRUIT COCKTAILS may be presented in gallery exhibitions, museums and at special events.  They are considered a work of art that happens to be consumable.  The Artists of Fallen Fruit will not serve them, nor will a bartender.  They are to be served by a specially outfitted “tour guides” and while the artists will make efforts to be at all presentations, the tour guides may serve them without us. Just as in a gallery tour, the they will discuss the work, about the experiences of place and be charged with answering questions about it. Our recent infusions have been West Palm Beach Coconut Vodka and Mango Sunset Tequila. 
Guests who are single get a garnish of one Maraschino Cherry. A Pineapple garnish will go to guests are not available or ‘coupled’

Cocktails are prepared on trays in disposable colored cocktail glasses. For each cocktail 1.5 ounces of tequila or vodka poured over ice 50/50 with unflavored carbonated water (not club soda). Trays of cocktails are offered to guests by tour guides. Tour guides are more like seasonal hosts at a resort.
