Live from the Frontline is a participatory public memory project inviting artists into the archives and the landscapes of logistics to create site-specific works that explore the roots of environmental racism, and to concurrently advocate for social justice.

About

The project includes eight sites located in Riverside and San Bernardino where long histories of colonialism and extraction from the land and labor are palpable, offering opportunities to reflect on what the curators call “the slow violence of the supply chain.”

In this exhibition, artist Tamara Cedré examines the industrial heritage of Colton and Fontana as a way of framing current questions surrounding the sprawl of logistics. She juxtaposes her new photographic works with archival imagery to reveal the forces that have shaped settlement and land use in mostly BIPOC communities. Aerial footage, shot by supporting artist Adrian Metoyer gives a wider perspective as soundscapes crafted by media archivist Henry Apodaca with community journalist Anthony Victoria bring voices and sounds from the environment into the gallery.

Cedré is a lens-based artist and educator whose practice employs archives to address issues at the nexus of land, labor, migration, and identity. She is currently a Visiting Professor at Pitzer College and lives/works along the route of the supply chain between Los Angeles and the Inland Empire.
