SATURDAY, JUNE 30
Art + Flea:
FIND ART festival t-shirt silk-screening with artist Carolyn Castaño, 1-4PM: Festival attendees can bring their own t-shirt or pick up one at the event ($5 for those who bring their own t-shirt, $10 for those who buy one at the event).
Public Fruit Jam by Fallen Fruit, noon-3PM: The artist collective invites the public to bring homegrown or street-picked fruit and collaborate with them in making collective fruit jams. Working without recipes, Fallen Fruit members ask people to sit with strangers and negotiate what kind of jam to make. For instance, “If I have lemons and you have figs, we’d make lemon-fig jam (with lavender).” Usually held in a gallery or museum, this event highlights the social and public nature of Fallen Fruit’s work. The artists consider it a collaboration with the public as well as a collaboration between participants.

Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Park: Interactive performance, Immigrate Imitate Prophet Profit, by Robert Reed (Honolulu, HI), from 3-5PM. Robert Reed is an MFA graduate from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. An installation and performance artist, he writes, produces, directs, costumes, stages, documents, constructs and performs his own material. His Find Art performance is inspired by his two decades of experience as an international flight attendant and his own reflections on the joys and horrors of capitalism’s excesses and deceptions. Festival attendees will encounter Reed as a fantastic giant parrot roaming Chinatown in his mobile cage. Drawing on irony and satire and using a light touch accessible to anyone, “Tourist Trap” encourages the public to consider notions of exploitation, confinement and a bit of the ridiculous.
