50% of proceeds will go to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and 50% of proceeds will go to LAND to sustain the project.
Rirkrit Tiravanija’s Signs for Change flag with LAND features the outlined words “BLACK STEEL IN THE HOUR OF CHAOS” over an all white American flag. The text references Public Enemy’s 1988 song Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos. Tiravanija’s text-based works, which he describes as “road signs,” invite us to consider how and what messages reach our consciousness on a daily basis. The force of the words encapsulate the foundational shifts that occurred over the past year.
For Signs For Change, Tiravanija chose to benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, who since 1973, has worked to mobilize resources in the community to alleviate hunger.
