Fallen Fruit Makes its San Diego Debut at Museum of Contemporary Art
SAN DIEGO, CA.- On Thursday, February 5, 2009, at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego's monthly TNT (Thursday Night Thing) event, the Museum will join forces with Fallen Fruit, a Los Angeles-based activist art project. Using fruit as their lens, the collective investigates urban space, ideas of neighborhood, and new forms of located citizenship and community.

Fallen Fruit's founding members David Burns, Matias Viegener, and Austin Young will be on hand to speak about their work, as well as engage TNT-goers with a variety of interactive fruit-centric activities that examine the idea of "public fruit"--fruit that is planted on the border of private and public property.

From video screenings to communal jam-making (using locally found public fruit), and a tasting of "Neighborhood Infusions" (public fruit-infused vodkas to see if the "spirit" of a place can be captured in a bottle) to the sharing of personal "Fruit Stories" (video interviews), this TNT will be a living exploration of the nature of collaboration, provoking new ideas of shared forms of land use and property, all at the heart of Fallen Fruit's mission.

TNT-goers also will have the opportunity to hear from artists Mely Barragán and Marisol Rendón speak about their work on view in the exhibition, Drawing the Line.

In addition, TNT will present live music by Los Angeles-based indie-electronica artist The Heathers; saloon-inspired folk music by local band Golden Red; and upbeat indie pop by San Diego's Team Abraham.

Fallen Fruit
Fallen Fruit is an art collaboration that began with creating maps of public fruit: the fruit trees growing on or over public property in Los Angeles. Using fruit as their lens, the collective investigates urban space, ideas of neighborhood, and new forms of located citizenship and community. From protests to proposals for new urban green spaces, Fallen Fruit aims to reconfigure the relation between those who have resources and those who do not; to examine the nature of and in the city; and to investigate new, shared forms of land use and property.

Over time the collective's interests have expanded from mapping public fruit to include Public Fruit Jams, in which Fallen Fruit invites the citizens to bring homegrown or public fruit and join in communal jam-making; Nocturnal Fruit Forages, nighttime neighborhood fruit tours; Community Fruit Tree Plantings on the margins of private property and in community gardens; Public Fruit Park proposals in Hollywood, Los Feliz, and downtown Los Angeles; and Neighborhood Infusions, taking the fruit found on one street and infusing it in alcohol to capture the spirit of the place.
