Jedediah Caesar, Julio Cesar Morales, and Kara Tanaka
May 16 – August 15, 2009
Orange County Museum of Art

Jedediah Caesar employed his 1992 Toyota pick-up truck to serve as the vessel for loading debris while traveling throughout the state of California on a predetermined route. The truck and items he collected were then on view in a work titled, “bright hot day long dark night.”

Julio Cesar Morales created a dinner performance for the opening of the Biennial, which recreated the last banquet before the transfer of Alta California from Mexico to the US.

Kara Tanaka produced and presented a mechanical sculpture called, “Crushed by the Hammer of the Sun.”
