Daniel Tucker – Artist in Residence Activities / Future Perfect Update

future-perfect-card

Artist In Residence Daniel Tucker has been busy making progress on his research for a new project. Future Perfect is shaping up to have a few different components: a web presence, a video, and a publication.

Since our last update, Tucker has met with Manny Escamilla from the Santa Ana Public Library’s History Room to start planning a time capsule here locally. He has also done video shoots at three sites related to Ronald Reagan and/or time capsules in Southern California: Ronald Reagan Sports Park (Temecula), the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library (Simi Valley), and Bonita Canyon Sports Park (Newport Beach), and two in Northern California: the CSEA Grove at the College of the Redwoods (Eureka) – formerly known as “Governor’s Grove”, and the time capsule walkway at UC Davis (Davis). On his recent research/lecture tour he visited the California State Archives (Sacramento), UC Berkeley’s Bancroft Library (Berkeley), and the Ronald Reagan Library A/V collection (Simi Valley).

When not digging into his Future Perfect project, Tucker is also using his residency to put the finishing touches on two books: Unfurlings (about his collaborative research with Rebecca Zorach on the never-the-same.org project) and Immersive Life Practices, a collection of newly commissioned essays (with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago) documenting the intersections of art, ethics and ecology. This weekend he heads back to Chicago for a brief visit to co-organize An Artists’ Congress (with Susy Bielak and Michael Rakowitz), a one day event and symposium at Northwestern University‘s The Block Museum.

When Tucker returns he will dig into the second phase of his residency, focusing on finishing the website that will house the different facets of this project and beginning editing on the video and publication that will result from this research. On May 24th there will be a closing reception for the group exhibition featuring Tucker’s research for Future Perfect at Commonwealth & Council gallery (Los Angeles).
