What You'll be Funding

Beginning Friday, October 12th, and continuing through Spring of 2019, Oscar Tuazon and  LAND will present to the public a series of events at  Los Angeles Water School (LAWS). Bringing together remarkable guests from a variety of vantage points including local history, architecture, politics, and art, these events held at the LAWS Downtown LA site will construct a genealogy of the role and economics of water in Los Angeles.  In order to bring to life this momentous programming and make it all thoroughly accessible to the public, we need your support. 

"Every time we take a sip of water we're connected to these places...these connections across big distances." -Oscar Tuazon

 What is Los Angeles Water School? 

Los Angeles Water School (LAWS) is a functional artwork, an experimental school for students of all ages to engage in dialogue and collaborative work about water. Located adjacent to the Los Angeles River, in a structure inspired by Steve and Holly Baer’s self-sufficient passive solar Zome House (1969-72), LAWS is the first of four Water Schools planned by artist Oscar Tuazon, with locations in Minnesota, Michigan, and Nevada. Presented by LAND, this series of events builds a genealogy of the complex life of water in Los Angeles, through the lens of local history, architecture, politics, and art. Through this collaborative process tracing how water connects diverse communities within Los Angeles and across the continent, working from a micro to macro understanding of policy and infrastructure, the artist and LAND are excited to continue this constitutive dialogue and create a setting for the exchange of cross-disciplinary ideas and learning.

LAWS  is situated at Tuazon's studio, most of the programming taking place within and around his ongoing project and multi-site work,  Zome Alloy. Its location, close to the LA River downtown, allows the artist to explore the hydrogeology that connects LA to the Valley. Most recently, the artist has been using the space to gather artists and musicians that he met at Standing Rock, North Dakota, where grassroots organizations and advocacy groups are attempting to bring national attention to the environmental factors missing from language focused on progress.

Zome Alloy is Tuazon's nod to southwest inventor Steve Baer’s Zome House. In the 1970s Baer and wife Holly created Zomehomes, residences constructed from old automobiles, and based on a stretched polyhedron system that heated the homes through passive solar energy utilizing water and wind. The couple lived off of a 5,000-gallon water tank and a windmill, applying the energy of the era's focus on sustainability to live nearly self-sufficiently.

Tuazon has been recreating these concepts using contemporary construction methods and technology. With LAWS, the artist is eager to bring the full project and concept into our era,  particularly highlighting the present-day dialogue around water rights and Trump-era environmental deregulation. Interested in building and creating forms meant to be social works rather than decorative objects, the artist's  sculptural practice revolves around an elemental understanding of simple models and complex spaces. Tuazon uses the vocabulary of architecture to investigate the humanistic potential of the occupation of quotidian spaces. By creating this genealogy, Tuazon and LAND hope to highlight the dialogue about water and infrastructure in Los Angeles and bring it to a new audience.

LA Water School Schedule of Events

Thanks to support at all levels, Los Angeles Water School and LAND are able to present this dynamic program of events for you to take part in. Each event is free and open to the public at LA Water School's downtown site.

The first scheduled event on October 12, 2018, will be a roundtable discussion in celebration of Indigenous People's Day.  Organized by Panda and Oscar Tuazon, it will explore the history of the Tongva--the original people of the Los Angeles River--through a dialogue on the traditional uses of this waterway and its significance today. Reconsidering the history of Los Angeles begins with indigenous oral histories and how these traditions can inform the city's current approach to water management. Reimagining the future of our shared water starts with an understanding of the language of the Tongva and the name of the original village where Los Angeles now stands, Yaangna.  Featured guests include Tongva elder Gloria Arellenes, Tongva elder Julia Bogany, songwriter Jessa Calderon, educator Tina Calderon, and scholar Annie Mendoza. Moderated by Kelly Caballero. 

Subsequent events will be scheduled to explore the impact of water from the vantage points of Architecture, Politics, and the physical Body. They will incorporate guest speakers from a multitude of backgrounds as well as artist-led conceptual and visceral experiences.

Your support is crucial in developing this important programming -- your contributions go directly towards paying contributors fairly for their time, maintaining the site for the duration of the project, and ensuring all events are open and accessible to the public. 

Keep up with the ongoing LA Water School events by following LAND on social media - Instagram, Facebook and Twitter - or checking in at our website www.nomadicdivision.org. Note: Kickstarter backers are the first to receive event details about upcoming LAWS programming through LAND.

Risks and challenges

LAND has been commissioning, presenting, and creating large-scale public artworks for nine years locally, nationally, and internationally. The greatest challenge we face as an arts institution is managing the constant variables in production and location needs that arise when bringing museum quality works of art to the public for free in unsuspecting locations. LAND has to be flexible to ensure that the works of art are made and installed to the artist's specifications, safe for the public, and delivered on time, as well as ensuring we work in close collaboration with our partner sites hosting the works. We overcome these challenges by being good listeners, both to the artists we work with, our collaborative partners, and most importantly to our audience and the communities to which we bring art.
