September 2024 sees the opening of PST ART: Art & Science Collide, a huge curatorial initiative by Los Angeles-based cultural and philanthropic institution Getty. Five years in the making and ‘the US’s biggest art project’, as Getty’s Andrew Perchuk notes in this video, the 2024 edition of PST ART involves more than 800 artists and 50+ institutions across Southern California, investigating a wide range of issues including climate change, AI, cosmology and bioengineering.

As part of the project, Frieze and Getty have joined in a yearlong creative collaboration that began at Frieze Seoul 2023 and continued at Frieze London 2023 to highlight PST ART’s themes and concerns. At Frieze Seoul, Korean visual research collective ikkibawiKrrr made this film about the haenyeo: a community of female divers on Jeju Island who harvest seaweed and seafood. Alongside its video installation, ikkibawiKrrr presented the interactive performance Flavors of the Sea (2023), offering visitors edible seaweed, every day at Frieze Seoul. 

ikkibawiKrrr are part of the exhibition ‘Breath(e): Toward Climate and Social Justice’ opening at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles in September 2024.
