Clockshop  🌟COMING SOON🌟 🗣#SouthofFletcher: Stories from the Bowtie 🎤A multi-platform storytelling project 📸by #FonografiaCollective 🌿Fall 2018 #BowtieProject

"Tzolk'in Memorial to Claudia Gómez González" is now on view via AR (augmented reality--the app is called 4th Wall) by the Rio Grande, by the border area where this beautiful 20-year old woman was shot and killed by a border patrol agent. I am so grateful to have been invited to be part of this amazing AR project designed and conceived by @nancybakercahill, that gives me the opportunity to honor Claudia Gómez González at the place where she lost her life, which was full of promise. I want to thank @alejandramunox for going to the site, and taking these beautiful photographs of my piece, from the river banks on the Nuevo Laredo, Mexico side. I also want to thank @rosadelcc and @hernandezartsphotos for their support. My gratitude also to Clockshop, the institution that supported me in the creation of the original sculpture, Tzolk'in at the Bowtie Project by the LA River, and to Gina Clyne, who took the original photograph of the piece that now has become a floating garden on the Rio Grande. Collaborating with Nancy on this project, being part of this community of artists, and joining forces at an international level to be able to place a virtual version of Tzolk'in as a memorial to her, has brought me enormous gifts of the spirit, thank you so much to all.

South of Fletcher: Stories from the Bowtie is a multi-platform storytelling project by Fonografia Collective that will launch September 2018.⠀

This project is an in-depth exploration of the Bowtie parcel, once one of Southern California’s most important rail yards. The Bowtie will soon become the next urban California State Park in Los Angeles, joining a patchwork of river-adjacent parks that are shaping the course of river revitalization. ⠀

South of Fletcher investigates both the subtle and dramatic changes taking place at the Bowtie through a photography exhibition, a five-episode podcast series, and several public events. ⠀

Tzolk’in is still ticking! Just a reminder that while the gates will likely be closed, you are always welcome to walk onto the site to enjoy the views, and see the artwork. Video & work by @beatrizcortezflores ⚙️#BowtieProject #CAStateParks #Tzolkin

Bike path update: super lush & lots of folks out fishing 😍

We’re taking a programming break this summer, but feel free to pop in on @beatrizcortezflores’s Tzolk’in at the #BowtieProject at any time. The gates will likely be closed, so park outside (without blocking any driveways, please!), and walk or roll about halfway down the site to see her piece.
If you want to learn more about Tzolk’in, you can hear Beatriz speak on a panel about public art & the river this Saturday at noon at Lewis MacAdams Riverfront Park.

RIP Harlan Ellison. We just read about some awful things he did in his lifetime, but he also helped Octavia Butler get her start and hone her craft. For that, we're grateful. ⠀

#BecauseofOctavia, we know that empathy is a superpower. How will you use it?

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27, join us at the Bowtie Project for an evening around the fire as Yansi Pérez and Raquel Gutiérrez read new and favorite works while the full moon rises over the LA River.⠀

This special Reading by Moonrise is organized in collaboration with artist Beatriz Cortez in response to Tzolk’in, her new sculpture, installed in two parts at both the Bowtie and the Hammer Museum.⠀

Sited in two vastly different contexts, Tzolk’in uses ancient Mayan technology and industrial materials to evoke the experience of divided families’ strained communication, the feeling of simultaneously living in two realities, and to consider the river as both a symbol of life and a border that separates. ⠀

In response to these ideas, Cortez has asked Yansi Pérez and Raquel Gutiérrez to read work that speaks to Salvadoran and Central American experiences of migration to the city of Los Angeles.⠀

Any profits from this reading will be donated to the ACLU, in solidarity with asylum seekers being detained at the US border.⠀

Gates open at 6:30, and the readings will begin at 7:30. Guests are encouraged to bring picnic items and blankets. S’mores will be provided between readings. ⠀

Reading by Moonrise is a quarterly fireside reading series held at the Bowtie Project on the eve of the full moon.⠀
