An ongoing collaboration between Los Angeles-based artists Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck, Lucky Dragons research forms of participation, dissent, perception and attention in performance and public art, purposefully working towards a better understanding of existing ecologies through workshops, publications, and recordings.

Fischbeck and Rara have presented collaborative work in a wide variety of contexts, including REDCAT, LACMA, and The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, MOCA Los Angeles, the Centre Georges Pompidou, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, London’s Institute for Contemporary Art, The Kitchen in New York, the 54th Venice Biennale, The Whitney Museum of American Art (as part of the 2008 Whitney Biennial) and The Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, among others.

Reverse Engineering The Technologies Of Peace

We will present findings from "User Agreement," a research-based art exhibition that seeks to identify technologies of peace—images, actions, and language that function as tools invented to resolve conflict, focus collective effort, and establish peace. Through a process of reverse engineering (dismantling, analyzing, and re-contextualizing) these technologies, we build new tools as art forms.
