Featuring interviews with the Los Angeles art collaborative Fallen Fruit (David Burns and Austin Young), this behind-the-scenes look at “Fallen Fruit of the Skirball”—curated by Linde Lehtinen and on view at the Skirball Cultural Center May 13-October 12, 2014—traces the evolution of the multi-phase project. Inspired by a seventeenth-century ketubbah (marriage contract) in the Skirball Museum collection, the public participatory art commission features a specially designed pomegranate wallpaper, a salon-style display of portraits of people who love each other, and a “Love Score” that artfully incorporates the public’s thoughts on love and relationships.
Los Angeles art collaborative Fallen Fruit (David Burns and Austin Young) and the Skirball Cultural Center have come together to produce an immersive art installation that celebrates Jewish heritage, relationships, and love. Experience this new public participatory art commission through October 12. Free to the public. more info here.
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.
