This Land Is Your Land
In the third installment of Pitzer’s Emerging Artist Series, Thai-born, Los Angeles based artist Nuttaphol Ma combines references to Manzanar—an abandoned Japanese relocation camp at the base of California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range—with Woody Guthrie’s missing lyrics from “This Land Is Your Land.” Ma’s site-specific installation explores issues of displacement, migration and survival and asks whether “This Land Is Your Land” is still relevant to today’s new immigrants.
This Land is Your Land is co-organized with the 18th Street Arts Center, Santa Monica.
