As part of “Fallen Fruit of New Orleans,” artists Fallen Fruit present a new immersive installation at Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane University.
Celebrating the New Orleans tricentennial, EMPIRE is an art installation by Los Angeles based artists Fallen Fruit (David Allen Burns and Austin Young). Through the assembly of over 300 objects, the artists will transform Newcomb Art Museum at Tulane University into one immersive artwork that explores the history of people and place in terms of cultural legacy, historical narrative, and social constructs.
To celebrate the opening of EMPIRE, Newcomb Art Museum hosts a reception on Friday, April 13. Burns and Young give a talk at 6:30 pm, followed by a public reception 7:30–9:00 pm.
EMPIRE is part of “Fallen Fruit of New Orleans” a suite of site-specific projects taking place throughout New Orleans from June 2017 through June 2018, commissioned and presented by Pelican Bomb, A Studio in the Woods, and Newcomb Art Museum. “Fallen Fruit of New Orleans” was initiated by Pelican Bomb in 2015.
