Kiyomi Fukui's Green Thumb Project

Kiyomi Fukui’s “The Green Thumb Project”

The Green Thumb Project
Kiyomi Fukui

August 5th, 2017 from 7pm to 10pm

Kiyomi Fukui shares a collection of paper cast thumbs containing seeds saved from the artists’ home garden. Molds were made of Michael and Kiyomi’s thumbs, and seeds were embedded in the paper pulp thumb forms. The Green Thumb Project will help populate the Fountain with edible herbs and vegetables. Visitors are invited to take a thumb of their choosing home with them to give their own green thumb a try!

This summer, GCAC artists-in-residence Cog*nate Collective will be facilitating a series of recording sessions + listening stations as part of Now & Always Santa Ana (NASA), a pirate-radio station dedicated to space exploration on a local, regional, and cosmic scale.

Content produced as part of these session will be featured alongside other programming in the first broadcasts during the August Art Walk. Listen in on 87.9FM throughout the month of August.  Additional broadcast schedule will be released soon..
 
Along with the broadcast on the 5th and 6th, the artists will set up an interactive listening station within the lobby of Grand Central Art Center.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Cog*nate Collective develops research projects + public interventions + experimental pedagogical programs in collaboration with communities across the US/Mexico border region. Since being founded in 2010, their work has interrogated the evolution of the border as it is simultaneously erased by neoliberal economic policies and bolstered through increased militarization — tracing the fallout of this incongruence for migrant communities on either side of the border. As a result, their site-specific projects often address issues of migration, informal economies, and the construction of collective identities through popular cultural, proposing an understanding of the border not as a bifurcating line, but as a region that expands and contracts with the movement of people and objects. They currently work between Tijuana, MX, Mexicali, MX, Santa Ana, CA and
Los Angeles, CA.
