Check out the guys on KCET...You can read my Edible LA article on Fallen Fruit here. Mary and I walked the same route for our Edible LA photo shoot (in fact, the seated FF interview in the video above is across the street from Mary's house). See some outtakes from our forage/shoot below.
And on Sunday Feb. 7, introducing EATLACMA (a year-long investigation into food, art, culture and politics curated by Fallen Fruit—David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young—and LACMA curator Michele Urton) Fallen Fruit will distribute free bare-root fruit trees, requesting they be planted in public space or on the perimeter of private property. This event was chosen to open EATLACMA in order to honor the beginning of the growth cycle, as well as to signal the project’s commitment to changing the shape of our city. EATLACMA will unfold seasonally, with artist's gardens planted and harvested on the museum campus, hands-on public events, and a concurrent exhibition, Fallen Fruit Presents The Fruit of LACMA (June 27-November 7, 2010). It culminates in a day-long event (November 7, 2010) in which over fifty artists and collectives will activate, intervene, and re-imagine the entire museum's campus and galleries.
