Elizabeth Chaney Collaboration with MCASD Teen Art Council

 
 

During spring 2012, San Diego/ Tijuana-based artist Elizabeth Chaney collaborated with the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s Teen Art Council (TAC) to design and implement “A Night of Forks & Film.” This public teen program invited 50 San Diego teens to an artist-curated dinner to discuss issues raised by the film Isaac Julien: Ten Thousand Waves, a nine-screen video installation that explores the movement of people across countries and continents and meditates on unfinished journeys.

Chaney documented the dinner through image and sound. Images from the program are currently on Chaney’s website and by the end of the summer a Zine that draws from participant words, TAC member writings, and program images will available at MCASD for program participants!
