Fallen Fruit Artist Talk

November 15, 2015 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Fallen Fruit was formed in 2004 when artists David Allen Burns, Matias Viegener, and Austin Young collaborated to map the locations of “public fruit” growing on or over public property in Los Angeles. Burns and Young have continued the project by focusing on fruit as both an artistic medium and subject. Their projects range from community events, performances, and public actions to photography, video, and immersive installations drawn from the mining of site- specific collections. Fallen Fruit examines the social, economic, and political implications of our relationship with fruit and believe that “fruit is the lens through which we look at the world.” Hear more about their contemporary art practice and their ambitious project Fallen Fruit of Portland.
