CROP COLLECTIVE PRODUCTION
Chelo Montoya + Paola Gil + Carolina Ybarra Mendoza
Crop Collective produced the culminating event for Mel Chin's project: The TIE that BINDS, presented by the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs for the CURRENT: LA Water Public Art Biennial, Summer 2015.
The production involved event management, rentals, event design, and production of program including three bands and acknowledgements. Crop Collective produced a special edition silkscreen project at Modern Multiples which featured native plants drawn by the artist and imprinted in large scale on the event tablecloths. For the table tops we worked with Ceramic Studio 153 to create arrangements using the native plants featured in the project.
The event was a culmination of a monthlong project focusing on collective water savings via native plant gardening. Carolina of Crop Collective was also involved throughout the project as a Mirror Maker and Chelo as Mirror Maker an partnership advisor to the project with the Otis MFA Public Practice program.
