McColl Center alumnus artists Mel Chin—conceptual, multi-disciplinary artist—and Ben Premeaux—photographer and documentary filmmaker—first collaborated on the project Fundred PSA to eradicate lead poisoning during Chin’s McColl Center residency in 2012. Since then, an unbreakable creative bond has been forged between the pair, Chin with poetic provocations of social responsibility and Premeaux with thoughtful imagery. Committed to applying their creative strength on the issues of our complex time, Premeaux leads the discussion on the next incarnation of Fundred, the water crisis fashion statement of Flint Fit, and the events leading up to the climate-aware short film L’arctique est Paris.
