Posts by: "Lucky Dragons"
Lucky Dragons is an ongoing collaboration between Los Angeles-based artists Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck. Active since 2000, Lucky Dragons’ purpose is to work, through forms of participation, dissent, perception, and attention, towards a better understanding of existing ecologies—in this process producing research, publications, workshops, performance, public art, and music. Fischbeck and Rara have presented collaborative work in a wide variety of contexts, including the Whitney Museum of American Art (as part of the 2008 Whitney Biennial), the Hammer Museum (as part of the 2014 Made in LA exhibition) the Centre Georges Pompidou, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, London’s Institute for Contemporary Art, ICA Philadelphia, MCA Chicago, The Kitchen and MoMA/PS1 in New York, REDCAT and LACMA in Los Angeles, MOCA Los Angeles, the 54th Venice Biennale, and the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, among others. The name “Lucky Dragons” is borrowed from a fishing vessel caught in fallout from the test detonation of a hydrogen bomb by the United States in 1954, an incident which sparked international outcry and gave birth to the worldwide anti-nuclear movement.
