Lucky Dragons

LUCKY DRAGONS are an ongoing collaboration between artists Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck, and 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. They have presented at REDCAT, LACMA, the Hammer Museum, MOCA, the Centre Georges Pompidou, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, London’s Institute for Contemporary Art, The Kitchen, the 54th Venice Biennale, the 2008 Whitney Biennial, the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Smell, and Pehrspace. The name “Lucky Dragons” is borrowed from a fishing vessel caught in the fallout from H-bomb tests in the mid-1950s, an incident which sparked international outcry and gave birth to the worldwide anti-nuclear movement.


Writing from our present historical moment in the city of Los Angeles, real estate interests force two of the best-organized and longest-running all-ages punk venues (The Smell and pehrspace) to move, shut down, or change.
