New Art by NEWCOMERS Reception

May 27th, 4-6 PM
Reception at Flux Factory for the students, their families, and the local community

Newcomers New

The students from Anne Kornfeld’s Media Arts classes at Newcomers High School participated in a digital collage workshop by Flux Factory artist-in-residence Lee Tusman. In this six-week residency at Newcomers, students learned how to create a photo essay and a self-portrait through an array of contemporary new media formats.

Using the online platform, New Hive, students constructed images applying new media techniques such as imbuing of the “selfie” into a complex composition and the use of animated GIFs. Students researched and created digital media as a means of inquiry and self-expression to produce their immigration stories.

A reception will be held at Flux Factory on May 27th from 4-6pm, for the students, their families, and the local community.

With generous support from: NYSCA, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts, and The Department for Cultural Affairs. In-Kind Donation Support from: Beija-Flor, Dutch Kills Centraal, Minuteman Press, and Coffeed.

June 13th-­21st, 2015


STROBE Network is a temporary broadcast network that will air via a digital streaming platform, featuring artworks that make use of broadcast as an artistic medium. The content has been programmed through an open call and the Flux Factory community at large, including work from 75+ artists. STROBE Network will create and distribute an alternate reality version of mass culture that is free, conscious, experimental, and uncensored.

Streaming 24/7 for ten days, STROBE Network will feature video art, performance, animation, talk shows, and music, as well as archival materials from Performa, VML, and ESP TV. STROBE Network will stream from June 12th-21st via strobenetwork.tv. In addition to streaming via our website, we will welcome a studio audience for live tapings on select evenings at our sound stage in the Flux Factory gallery in Long Island City. Off-site spaces will host viewing parties and Strobe TV Toilet Viewing Station at Silent Barn, Brooklyn, NY.

STROBE Network is part of Flux Factory’s 2015 programing. Flux Factory is a non-profit art organization that supports and promotes emerging artists through exhibitions, commissions, residencies, and collaborative opportunities. Flux Factory is guided by its passion to nurture the creative process, and knows that this process does not happen in a vacuum but rather through a network of peers and through resource-sharing. Flux Factory functions as an incubation and laboratory space for the creation of artworks that are in dialogue with the physical, social, and cultural spheres of New York City (though collaborations may start in NY and stretch far beyond).

Thursday July 9th
Dinner at 7 pm. Presentations begin at 8 pm.
The event is free, but please do bring something to share!

flux 09_07

Flux Factory is pleased to present a night of feasting and artistic inquiry with a nomadic spin. This month’s Flux Thursday appeals to the adventurers, explorers, and wanderers among us as we investigate what it means to make art on the move. The night’s presentations will include artists who incorporate travel, migration, and mobility into their modes of production and practice. These artists take on different approaches: moving between environments as the impetus to create, making art in moving places, or forgoing the stability of a static location completely.

Will Owen will perform a new sound design commissioned for the Copenhagen Metro System as part of Copenhagen Art Week. The piece combines simple melodic elements with field recordings capturing the different neighborhoods of this thriving and multi-faceted city. Valentina Medda will present. Noelia Portela from Elbowroom Moving Gallery in Wellington, New Zealand will discuss the opportunities for experimentation and innovation afforded by mobile formats of engagement, focusing on a recent project merging food and design. Jasmine Stein and Lena Takamori will screen their short film entitled Walking Long Towards the Sky, a poetic document of the meeting of a drummer and dancer from two life journeys that speaks to the solitary anguish of placelessness and strength of rootedness communicated through poetry, music and movement. It was filmed in Brooklyn and shown in Trinidad during Carnival.

Nomadic cuisine designed by Jemila MacEwan & Maddie Hewitt.

David Kagan will talk about his work as a myth-maker, performance artist and musician. Jemila MacEwan current resident of flux will talk on the unpredictable transformations that occur when performance becomes documentation.

The Menu for Mars Kitchen

Flux Factory Presents The Menu for Mars Kitchen at Pierogi’s The Boiler
Opening Reception May 29th
On view May 29th- June 20th
Open hours Thursday-Sunday, 12-6 pm or by appointment.
Organized by Heidi Neilson & Douglas Paulson


Join the Menu for Mars Supper Club as we pioneer a menu for the Red Planet, and construct an analog Mars kitchen.

From May 29 to June 20, the Menu for Mars Kitchen will be open to the public. Visitors are invited, alongside special guests, to prototype a dish using Mars­feasible ingredients. Dishes will be documented, sampled, evaluated, and vacuum­packed. At the exhibition’s end, the prototype dishes and a summary of findings will be sent to NASA to augment their preparations for colonizing Mars. The Kitchen will also test off­-Earth cultivation of edible plants and mushrooms, food preservation, and related topics through a series of workshop and events. See events here. Over the last year, Menu for Mars Supper Club met monthly with guest experts over dinner to consider how the circumstances on Mars would affect colonists’ food—and their physical, cultural, and psychological needs. The Menu for Mars Kitchen culminates these discussions and related research.

The Menu for Mars Kitchen will be open in The Boiler May 29 ­ June 20. Gallery hours are 12 ­ 6pm Thursdays through Sundays, and by appointment. Come and taste­-test the future!

Participating artists, gardeners, musicians, and cooks are: Albert Park, Alex Tsocanos, Alice Gorman, Anna Dabney Smith & David Grainger, Gil Lopez, Heather Kapplow & Thalia Zedek, Hoi Cheng, John Roach, Joshua Liebowitz, Justin Amrhein, Kerim Zapsu, Lindsay Iserman, Marco Castro, The Planetary Society ­New York City, Sian Proctor, Tattfoo Tan, Ward Shelley, Will Owen with Matthias Borello.

Holonomic: New Holograms by Eric Leiser

Holonomic: New Holograms by Eric Leiser
Opening Reception Friday May 1st, 6 – 9 pm
On view through May 11th
Open weekends 2-6 pm and by appointment (email info@holocenter.org)

eric leiser

 The holographic image evokes with its multidimensional existence, eludes with its transparent volume and draws with perceptual phenomena the viewer into a philosophical paradox. The dynamic flux of perception understood through intuition is the idea of the intertwining of perceiver and perceived linked by light. The holographic image not only is spatial and color perception, the pure product of light, but this light coded information is always in the process of self-construction with our eyes, according to our movements and the point of view adopted. In Holonomic, Eric Leiser presents a series of luminous holographic images on Agfa Film of sculptures involving falling snow and light on splashing water made with a Ruby Pulse Laser in conversation with holonomic brain theory, developed by Neuroscientist Dr. Karl Pribram (1919-2015), a model of human cognition that describes the brain as a holographic storage network. Neuropsychology describes engrams as a means by which memory traces are stored as biophysical changes in neural tissue in response to external stimuli. This investigation of perception as the medium which can be applied to understanding all reality, Leiser points out how human cognition is intrinsically involved with co creating our perceived world.

Eric Leiser is an award-winning artist, filmmaker, animator, puppeteer, writer, holographer working in the New York and California. A graduate from CalArts Experimental Animation program, he creates animated and live action feature films and shorts as well as works integrating animation, holography, puppetry, painting, live performance and installation. His most recent solo exhibitions include Gallerie Du Haut Pave, Paris, France, All Things Project Gallery in New York, Fringe Exhibitions in Los Angeles, Goldsmiths College of Art London, the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and the Ruben H. Fleet Space Museum in San Diego. Group exhibitions include Spencer Brownstone Gallery, Holocenter, Cabinet Magazine, Mass MOCA among others. His stop motion animated/live action films have been shown at the Museum of Modern Art Antwerp, Victoria and Albert Museum, The Istanbul Modern Museum of Art, MoMA, New Museum, The MIT Museum, The Ruben H. Fleet Space Museum, Thessaloniki Contemporary Art Museum, Centro Cultural Ricardo Rojas Museum de Buenos Aires, MASS MoCA,(BFI) British Film Institute, Four-Dimensions Space Art Museum, Beijing, CAFA Beijing, Aster Arts Plaza Hiroshima, Anthology Film Archives, Los Angeles Filmforum, San Francisco Film Society, Goldsmiths College London, California Institute of the Arts and the School of the Art Institute in Chicago among others. Eric is an alumni of CalArt’s Experimental Animation program.

This exhibition was funded by the Queens Art Fund Grant.

Join Leiser and guests for a discussion about the holonomic brain theory, May 3 @ 3 pm

Open Call: 2015 Exhibition Season



Flux Factory announces an open call for our 2015 exhibition season!

Flux expands the creative experience beyond the typical gallery setting, using our exhibition space and the public realm as sites for critical intervention. This approach has helped Flux build a reputation for being inventive, risk-taking, and playful, while supporting the creation of new collaborative work and serving as an access point for audiences to experience the multidisciplinary creative process.

Please visit our 2014 group exhibitions for reference: Exquisite Contraption, Nightlight, Homecoming, and Utopia School.

To apply for any of the exhibitions listed below, email the appropriate address with the exhibition title in the subject line. See individual exhibition descriptions for deadlines, notifications, and additional requests for relevant info. If you wish to apply for more than one exhibition, please send a separate email for each and make your application specific to the exhibition.



Hotel Wars (October 2015) ** OPEN CALL STILL RUNNING!
Hotels are popping up left and right in LIC.  What makes each hotel unique? Who are the people inside of them? Flux Factory is organizing the first LIC Olympics to answer these questions. We’re calling upon hotel guests, neighbors, and tourists to fight for glory. Flux is seeking game designers, artists, musicians, and performers to collaboratively invent games and challenges, create anthems and ceremonies, and design team crests and costumes. We’ll stage actions both inside participating hotels and outside during a block party. Together we’ll engage a wide range of participants and encourage everyone to think critically about the expansion of tourism and hotels in LIC.

It’s not about ratings, it’s not about pools, it’s about who can win in a battle of wits, strength, and agility.

Please send your proposal to exhibitions@fluxfactory.org. In your project proposal, please also tell us about one experience you’ve had in a hotel. Applications are due June 15st, and applicants will be notified mid-June.



Counterfeiting For Cash (February 2015)
In early 2015, we’ll be hosting a show about counterfeits and counterfeiting. We are looking for artworks (real, fake, or really fake) and interventions that might:

– confound notions of authorship & authenticity
– engage the public
– engage social media
– intervene in hubs of culture and commerce (such as museums’ collections and galleries)
– can be sold on the black market

Please send proposals to p.picasso@fluxfactory.org by January 1st and include a link to your work.



STROBE Network (June 2015)

Exquisite Contraption: Quit While You’re Ahead Party


Over the last year, a giant Rube Goldberg machine has activated the walls, ceilings, and stairways of Flux Factory. Its gears, levers, servos, ball tracks, toy cars, cameras, catapult, and shredder have been busy, completing the machine’s task to create a living record of its residents. Against all odds, it’s operated flawlessly; we set out to make a machine to last a year, but we created a machine to last a million years.

Sadly, the end draws near. In the spirit of impermanence, unpredictability, and glorious failure we invite you to QUIT WHILE YOU’RE AHEAD, the final party celebrating the Exquisite Contraption. We’ll set off the machine throughout the night to the sounds of DJ Vinyl Richie and Lost Colony (DJ Great Boyfriend, DJ Corey Hell, and DJ SEAARCH) until everything devolves into a dance party.

The Exquisite Contraption was created by Stephanie Avery, Ranjit Bhatnagar, Jason Eppink, Justin Lange, Adrian Owen, Amelia Marzec, Alex Nathanson, Nick Normal, and Eric Petersen

Counterfeiting for Cash


Counterfeiting for Cash
February 27 – March 22
Open Hours: Saturdays and Sundays Noon-6PM
Monday-Friday viewable by appointment only.  
Opening celebration February 27 at 7 pm.

Flux Factory is proud to present Counterfeiting For Cash, an exhibition that confronts notions of authorship and authenticity, value, and celebrates ingenuity. Twelve artists have been commissioned to intervene in the systems we rely on to establish value, or investigate the rich history of unexpected counterfeits of ubiquitous and readily available objects.

From February 27th to March 22nd, the Flux Factory gallery will function as a hub for these counterfeits, as they are inserted into the systems they will exploit: Craigslist, the dark web, antique shops, the art market, and major universities; or manipulate value we take for granted: branding, ubiquitous chachkies, eggs, and the value of a quarter. These artworks will go far beyond the gallery, and touch the lives of investors, collectors, shoppers and eaters. This exhibition is a window into a real world where nothing is what it seems, and the motives of the makers are dubious, confounding, and irreverent.

Join us on March 21st for a special look in to the world of some very unexpected counterfeits. Broc Blegen will discuss curating his collection of counterfeit masterpieces, and Joshua Liebowitz will take us on a tour of the counterfeit egg industry, show you where to find it on the dark web, and with a little luck, let you have a bite.

Participating artists: Broc Blegen, Cassidy Toner, Eric Doeringer, Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos, Joshua Liebowitz, Kathryn Sclavi and Christine Zapata, Robert Levy, Sean Benjamin, Tega Brain, Tessa Rex, and Valentina Medda. Curated by Douglas Paulson.

More information forthcoming here, on Facebook and Twitter.



Counterfeiting for Cash is one of Flux Factory’s Four Major Exhibitions of the 2015 Season and is supported, in part, by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

January Flux Thursday

Thursday January 8th
Dinner at 8 pm. Presentations begin at 9:30 pm.
The event is free, but please do bring something to share!

january flux thurs

This month’s Flux Thursday, organized by Flux Artist-in-Residence Valentina Medda, will focus on the relationship between the body and architecture with particular focus on the idea of sensuality as a way to reconsider how we relate with space and place: a way that is creative, playful and physical rather than rational, unemotional and disconnected. How can we, as artists and activists, open up a space of freedom in a constrictive urban space?

During the evening will draw a line between different ways to think of our relationship with architecture. Jaime Iglehart will present pieces of a work in progress, Architecture of La Zad: selected moments from a visitor’s lens, a work which looks at the detailed innovation of anarchic architecture, composed in a space who’s circumstances of conflict constantly shape its growth; Valentina Medda will share some considerations (and images) on the possibility to, through our senses, developing a sense of belonging to our environment, and therefore a sense of community and responsibility toward the place we life in and are part of; Stephen Polk will talk about the transformative act of physically intervening in space as a means to resist injustice and capitalism.

After the presentations, Kathryn Sclavi will propose a participatory art experience dedicated to develop new cognitive strategies for spatial negotiation. Participants will be encouraged to explore Flux Factory as a navigator, using their emotional state as a guiding point to locate places or situations within the space.

RSVP for the event here.

2015 Not-So-Silent Auction Open Call

12223527935_c23221cf7d_k (1)

Flux Factory’s annual “Not So Silent” Art Auction will return on March 12, 2015.  Join hundreds of your closest friends in the warm glow of gallery lit artworks, the warmer glow of an open-bar buzz, and the warmest glow of keeping Flux alive another year.  Yea and verily, when Flux crosses the East River to land on 79 Walker Street, we’ll take no prisoners and leave the earth scorched in our mission to…well…support nice artists to offer free, inventive culture to Queens year-round…we’ll stop at nothing!

Our Executive Director Nat would sure love to work alongside a dedicated volunteer in the coming months to help line everything up.  For the night of, we invite folks to pitch spectacles, side-shows and decorations.  In the past, we’ve had bathroom valets, photo booths, knock-off masterpiece painters – we’re interested in quirky ideas to add to the fun without overshadowing the seriousness of the art auction.  No need to go through the formal process as with our other exhibitions on this one — if you’d like to get involved, email nat@fluxfactory.org with materials that get across your ideas and experience.

Check out photos from our previous auctions in 201420122011, and 2010.

Center for the Holographic Arts Presents: Parallax:Perspectives

holocenter 12:19
Parallax: Perspectives
Friday December 19th, 7pm-11pm

At years end, we always take a glance back at how the past twelve months affected us. But what if you could place the most effective moments in a single room and have them all play back at the same time?

At Parallax:Perspectives, we will be looking back in time but standing still in space. Maximus Clarke’s “Around the Clock”, a 3D panorama of our former home at the Clock Tower runs in a loop. Viewers may contemplate the relations between space and time and the tension between time’s linearity and its circularity — the renewal promised by each sweep of hands round the dial, each cycle of light and darkness. Jake Nelson’s live painting uses video that travels through New York City onto a blank canvas. Tracing the images for hours, the resulting canvas will be hundreds of layers of the city superimposed onto each other. Over time, the buildings and windows will become so overlaid that a sense of geographic space will be challenged.

Over a dozen artists will be bringing their installations from the Parallax series on Governors Island to Flux Factory’s gallery. For one night only you can see planes of light forming a cube in fog, while dots of light fire from a sculpture and spin in space. Also, while forming a sense of psychogeography developed from a day of exploring our summer island home, Erik Sanner will be projecting Governors Island of Cones, his collaboration with Pete Emerick and Glenn Amico. Legendary 3D artist Gerald Marks will be presenting a series of images from Governors Island’s history as well as the Holocenter’s history in Nolan Park and the ClockTower of LIC. Along with a number of thoughtful and stunning projection pieces, enjoy Eternal Now: culling from dozens of hours of footage shot from the roof of the Holocenter House, Carlton Bright’s 3D video installation melds the life of Nolan Park with light painting elements.

See traditional holograms, enjoy tasty refreshments, purchase affordable prints and celebrate a head-spinning 2014 while wishing us a successful 2015!

December Flux Thursday

Thursday December 11th
Dinner at 8:30 pm. Presentations begin earlier at 6:30 and continue later at 9:30 pm.
The event is free, but please do bring something to top your pancakes!

december flux thurs

On Thursday, December 11th, at 8pm explore 10,000 years of grain at Flux Factory with a time-traveling pancake potluck dinner. Pancakes will be made with einkorn, one of the earliest cultivated grains; Kernza, a perennial grain currently under development at The Land Institute in Kansas; and Corn flour, a contemporary staple grain. Bring a historical or futuristic tasty topping to enjoy with pancakes.

Join us before, at 6:30, and after dinner to discuss Kitchens & Capitalism which examines the way different types of kitchens resist and/or replicate capitalism. The exhibit will collect drawings, models, diagrams and stories of different kinds of kitchens: historical, home, collective, and industrial. Performances and workshops will examine ways of performing the kitchen and how our performances of the kitchen shape our worldview. As part of our research we will map and remodel Flux Factory’s collective kitchen.

Kitchens & Capitalism involves Walker Tufts, Emily Ensminger, Greg Stewart, Carina Kaufman, Grace Amber, Hannon Welch, Will Owen, Athena Kokoronis, and others.

This project is partially funded by Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant with special thanks to The Land Institute.  Flux Thursdays are supported by the Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts.

“Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.” 

-Mahatma Gandhi

#FUEELESTADO is a project about the lack of social justice and the gross human rights violations in Mexico. It examines the conflict between state power and personal autonomy and responsibility, a conflict that, in Mexico, involves missing persons and unidentified bodies and that can’t be silenced anymore.

Since 2006, over 26,000 individuals have gone missing in Mexico as a result of the violence and mayhem caused by the law enforcement officials’ war on drugs. The 43 students from Normal Rural de Ayotzinapa who went missing while in the custody of Iguala’s police force in September 2014 brought these social justice violations to the forefront and world wide. This project is a wake up call to engage reality.

Lavinia Raccanello‘s work focused on the relationship between human beings, society and social justice, with a particular emphasis on the power of dialectic and participatory practice, and the conflict between state power and personal autonomy and responsibility.

Flux Hospital


Flux Hospital
November 27 – 30: 1-6pm daily.
Opening Reception: November 27. Doors at 5pm, Thanksgiving potluck 7-10pm

Friday 28: Leftovers by Julia Sherman & Sarah Keough (2-5 pm)- A collective Thanksgiving sandwich competition (bring your favorite Thanksgiving leftovers).
Saturday 29: Where I end and you begin: A Beginner’s Guide to Listening by Kerry Downey (live, 2 pm) + Open discussion between participating artists, curator and guests on hospitality as tool and premise (4 pm).

FLUX HOSPITAL is an exhibition on social art practices that use and address hospitality as a central human force and resource. Through the artworks presented in the exhibition, made by a group of international artists, FLUX HOSPITAL asks: What is hospitality and how is it used as an artistic tool?

Acknowledgement, empathy, dialogue and inclusion are some of the key terms ascribed to social art practices, and FLUX HOSPITAL is a way of discussing these as proposals to think, act and meet other human beings in hospitable ways. Not to simply attack the xenophobia of contemporary life and culture, but also to argue that dialogue and acts of sharing can lead to bigger experiences, knowledge and happiness.

And what better occasion could there be to celebrate hospitality than the American tradition of Thanksgiving?

With works by: Kerry Downey, Sandy Smith (UK), Dillon de Give, Julia Sherman & Sarah Keough, Kenneth A. Balfelt (DK), Douglas Paulson & Rancourt/Yatsuk, Walker Tufts, Ayden LeRoux, Will Owen and artists from Flux Factory. Curated by: Matthias Borello (DK).

Matthias Borello is a Danish critic and independent curator focused on art practices, exhibition formats and curatorial strategies within social practices. In 2012, Matthias curated the international festival Visit Tingbjerg 2012 in a Copenhagen suburb. In fall 2014 he will publish a book on social practices in collaboration with Danish artist Kenneth A. Balfelt. Matthias currently lives in Copenhagen, where he is the co-founder and editor of the Danish art publication KUNSTEN.NU. Beside all of that, he loves drumming in any form.

PB is coming to LIC

Quite a few Fluxers have their eyes on Participatory Budgeting (PB), a democratic way of dispersing city money for community projects.  Over the coming year, folks who live and work in some NYC neighborhoods (including our own neighborhood of Long Island City) will propose public works projects and collectively vote on a million dollars worth of improvements.  If you’re not in the Long Island City-ish district, check pbnyc.com to see if your neighborhood does PB.

You can get involved very soon.  Below you’ll find a calendar of upcoming Neighborhood Assemblies.  The first one is Thursday the 16th!  At these Assemblies, you can pitch ideas about improvement projects and work with others to develop the ideas into full approvals to get funded.  There you’ll see if Flux Factory’s idea to add slides next to subway stairs stands to be laughed at or voted up!

If you want to chat with us about PB, do email nat@fluxfactory.org to steer you in the right direction.

While the above video gives a general idea of why PB is good for NYC, nothing happens without you.  Don’t be an armchair critic of developments in the city, take a look at the below calendar and get thinking about some ideas to bring to the next Neighborhood Assembly.

Painting, Painthing and Paintthing, (the verbs)

“The Legend” 2015 mixed media on canvas, 62×87

Painting, Painthing and Paintthing, (the verbs)

Preview February 19 by appointment.
Opening Reception February 20, doors at 7 pm.
Open hours Saturday February 21 and Sunday February 22 from Noon- 5 pm.

I am pleased to present my second solo show at Flux Factory: “Painting, Painthing and Paintthing, (the verbs).” I will show new work made during my third residency, but also look back at work made during my other two residencies in 2011 and 2012. I will reflect on them, resize them, give them new titles, or destroy them. In 2011 my show was about the “Paintings, Painthings and Paintthings.” Now it is about the “Painthing, Painthing and Paintthing (the verbs).” By giving old work a new meaning, by changing the size and the weight of a painting, by giving a painthing a new title or by destroying paintthings that are not functional anymore. I am also painting new work, painthing new work and paintthing new work. “I make paintings, painthings and paintthings. Often I tried to make my last painting but I never succeeded. I am consistently inconsistent and obsessively need the canvas to be able to understand life. In my work I use everything around me but turn these personnel anecdotes into abstract concepts. In my drawings I relentlessly repeat the same deed over and over again. I would like to be like Hanna Darboven or On Kawara, but I am not. There is often a conflict in my work that needs to be solved and that’s why I can’t stop painting.”

Wieteke Heldens (1982, Ottersum) graduated in 2007 at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Followed by a 2 year post-graduate in The Hague named DNA. During this time she worked in Chongqing, China at the Sichuan Fine Arts institute. Heldens exhibited in the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague and internationally in Switzerland, Belgium, France, Denmark and USA. In 2011 and 2012 Heldens was an artist in residence at Flux Factory in New York. In 2013 Heldens won the Royal prize for painting. She works and lives in New York and The Hague.

Flux Factory invades ACE Hotel

ACE Hotel invited five Flux Residents to participate in their Sunday Artist-in-Residence Series. The following Fluxers are using their hotel-stays to research, open up dialogues, and delve deeper into current projects. 


Sunday October 5th: LENA HAWKINS & MICHAEL DIPIETRO: FALLEN PEARLS (V.S.O.P.) is a new performance installation work by artists Michael DiPietro and Lena Hawkins. Drawing on psychological case studies and daytime dramas, Fallen Pearls (V.S.O.P.) unfolds a narrative of unrequited lovers, stifled by the oppressive demands of high society and the family name. Perhaps promised to others, or perhaps brother and sister, there is an insidious force that conspires Maryanne and Daniel F. from fulfilling their desires; given one last night together, they are drawn into a dark, consummating ritual that can only end in a cliffhanger.

Sunday October 12th: GIL LOPEZ: Through his ACE A.I.R. Gil Lopez will gather a small group of activist artists to critique the exploitation of creatives as social capital for corporate branding. Complicit or combative, artists play an active, yet sometimes invisible or unidentified, role in advertising, gentrification, capitalism and other social mechanisms. On this evening we will playing our role as cultural provocateurs, unpack some of these concepts and leave our dissenting notes as artifact of our resistance.

Sunday October 19th: AYDEN GROUTAyden L.M. Grout will continue work on her recent project “Pillow Book,” which uses photography, installation, video, and text, to explore the physical, emotional, and spatial influence of beds. Within the walls of the ACE Hotel, she will consider the wealth of stories that the ever-changing list of occupants have imprinted on the hotel’s rooms.

Sunday October 26th: WILL OWEN: Will Owen intends to ride the elevator at the ACE hotel all night and request recipes from anyone riding the elevator. These recipes will be added to a growing collection of recipes that people have memorized. Will has been gathering people’s memorized recipes for more than 8 years across Canada, Mexico, Taiwan, Cambodia, Italy, Slovakia, Greece, Czech Republic, and the US. The first volume of these recipes and stories of their collection will be released as open source material in Spring 2015.

Utopia School


October 1 – 31, 2014
Open Hours: Wednesday – Sundays, 12pm-10pm
All classes take place at Flux Factory unless otherwise noted. View full class schedule here:
What kinds of information are useful for re-imaging the future?
Utopia School is a month-long social center* hosted at Flux Factory for the purpose of studying Utopian experiments throughout time, as well as practicing our skills towards building new free spaces and practices. These classes, screenings, discussions and games will be connected by the essential question: What kinds of information are useful for re-imaging the future?
To us, utopias take the form of intentional communities, squats, community gardens, communes, and other initiatives geared towards communizing resources, (including those which don’t self-describe as Utopian.) We hope these classes and explorations will help to document and further these specific knowledges.
There will be several Utopians-in-Residence as well as class leaders involved in running the space at any given time, co-learning together, and teaching classes. You, too, can propose a residency project which interacts with the space. We hope you will join us!
Utopia School is open from 12pm-10pm Wednesday-Sunday, from October 1-31st on location at Flux Factory, except when otherwise noted. There are a bunch of field trips in the works, and some classes will take place at other venues, so pay attention to the location in “class descriptions”.And, finally, it is never too late to propose classes. Please visit utopiaschool.org to propose a class. See you in the classroom!*Social centers (or social centres) are community spaces. 
They are buildings which are used for a range of disparate activities, which can be linked only by being not-for-profit. They might be organizing centers for local activities or they might provide support networks for minority groups such as prisoners and refugees. Often they provide a base for initiatives such as cafes, free shops, public computer labs, graffiti murals, legal collectives and free housing for travellers. The services are determined by both the needs of the community in which the social center is based and the skills which the participants have to offer. Social centers tend to be in large buildings and thus can host activist meetings, concerts, bookshops, dance performances and art exhibitions. Social centers are common in many European cities, sometimes in squats, sometimes in rented buildings. Also known as a free space, social centers may be designated “safe-space” where specific forms of dialogue and activism are encouraged and protected from harassment, or they may be intended to serve as open space for community interaction among widely disparate groups without censorship. There is a great deal of overlap between the two types.


Utopia School is one of Flux Factory’s Four Major Exhibitions of the 2014 Season and is supported in part by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.


The Rhythm That Laughs You

The Rhythm that Laughs You - Flyer:Poster“The Rhythm That Laughs You” explores diverse approaches to humor and the comic in works by female artists who foreground bodily experience through object-based practices. The exhibition borrows its title from a statement of Hélène Cixous in her seminal “The Laugh of Medusa” (1975). Cixous describes the peculiar materiality of laughter and the subject position, conceiving the experience of laughter in the form of a rhythm that traverses us. Rather than deciding to laugh, we abandon ourselves to it, and by participating in the emotion of the one who laughs, lose ourselves in another. Laughter is both a dislocation and a communion of bodies. But laughter, in its excess, also threatens meaning. Whether a slapstick or a joke’s punchline, the unexpectedness of humor always forces us to shift our assumptions and expectations. Humor resists, transgresses, or subverts the order of things.
From Agnes Heller to Simon Critchley, contemporary theories of humor point out to the ultimate heterogeneity of comedy. Although analysis of the comedy breakdown into three main theories—superiority, incongruity, and relief—however, the question has moved from the essence to the form of laughter. As distinct from the comedy as a form of drama, the idea of the comic gathers together things that are laughable or humorous. Entirely heterogeneous, there is nothing beyond a family resemblance among the different manifestations of the comic. Even more, how can we know the laughter from the comic? Laughter is nothing but a vibration or a tremor, as Jean-Luc Nancy writes. The experience of laughter is always dangerous and violent. Convulsive, contagious laughter throws everything off balance: it is a form of dissolution not without joy and pleasure. “The Rhythm That Laughs You” comprises five different comic visions and genres of laughter: light, camp, surreal, grotesque, and carnivalesque.

Thermospheric Station


Thermospheric Station
Friday, September 5th 2014
Door opens at 7pm, Performance starts at 8:30pm

The space you have just stepped into has no weather. Is your body pulsing like volcanic lava or stiff like a giant iceberg? The inhabitants expose their bodies to cosmic rays and experiment with their tolerance limits. Some astronauts made themselves fall from phenomenal heights. However, no one knows whether they fell or not. When the Sun has more magnetic storms, the night auroras shine with greater intensity. Only during the nighttime, music here travels a great distance, almost reaching to the earth. Are your movements holding gravity tight? Or did you accidentally slip into outer space as if you were dusted off by solar wind?

The Thermospheric Station brings together sound artists, contemporary classical composers, experimental musicians and contemporary dancers from different sides of the world to create an experimental sound performance. Coming from Greece, Portugal, Bosnia, USA, Japan, and South Korea, this diverse group is presenting their work at Flux Factory in New York.

Nuno da Luz, a current artist in residence at Residency Unlimited, will play field recordings enhancing some resonance ranges with percussive instruments and feedback loops. To describe his piece, he quotes the composer, Maryanne Amacher: “Tone-of-place, experienced, heard through skin, detected by unnamed sensibilities, and impression carried-in through skin even when not in the physical place. Tone around you and with you. I don’t like your tone. I like your tone. I like the tone of this place.”

Composer Dimitrios Skyllas wrote a piece for a trio based on Rilke’s poem “Autumn.” The vocalist Motomi Tanaka will perform alongside percussionist Cory Bracken, and Skyllas will complete the trio on melodica. An emphasis is given on the word “Someone,” where the composer contemplates the (non) existence of a superior force.

Jung In Jung, a current artist in residence at Flux Factory, will present a dance and sound collaboration. The sound composition will be improvised by both the limited and free physical movement of two dancers, Dane Lukic and Quentin Burley. Triggered by a game controller’s red wires, data relating to the position and length is then programmed to manipulate sound.

In “Pull,” the band Cesspool explores magnetism and verticality. They experiment with three-dimensional speaker placement and vertical space, and build arrival points into the structure of the piece, approaching said points with exponentially increasing and decreasing momentum. Cesspool will present their works under the artwork, “Sound Cave,” by Danny Crump. The shape of the dome creates a unique acoustic amplification, further layering the effect of the sound.

Richard Garet‘s performance will focus on creating processes that interact and activate sonic material such as electromagnetic waves, modified tape, cracked media, sonification of light, and computer processing. This sonic construction will surface in real-time, creating a poly-layered sonic field where the final outcome consists of amplifying manifestations between the materials and articulating colliding forces being carefully treated, weighed, and measured.

The concert is organized by Jung In Jung and produced by Sungpyo Hong. Audiences are invited to explore the variety of performances with delicious refreshments provided by Cup&Cup and Yonda Inc.

Nat Roe

Nat Roe ED Flux Factory

Nat Roe is Flux Factory’s Executive Director, so he spends all his time at Flux sending emails, attending meetings and making spreadsheets in front of our big office window.

Nat is a co-founder of Silent Barn’s current space in Bushwick, Brooklyn.  Silent Barn is a collectively directed space for living, working and performing.  He has organized and performed at numerous concerts since moving to New York in 2009.

For many years, Nat DJed a weekly radio program at WFMU.  His program centered around a style of audio collage that drew influence from turntablism and dancehall Clash style as well as the cut-up and appropriation techniques of artists like Brion Gysin and Christian Marclay.  You can listen to all his years of live improvised radio collage on Nat’s archives page.  Nat performs and records in the audio-visual duo Private Language with new media artist Melissa F Clarke.  Nat has also released a 7″ with Kakutopia records, a tape on Spleencoffin records, a CD with Tanzprocesz records — you can hear all these recordings at freemusicarchive.org

Before getting involved in collective-centric arts spaces, Nat was active as a music journalist.  He has written for publications such as Wire Magazine, Signal To Noise, Rhizome, Fader, Noisey, and was the editor of WFMU’s blog for several years.

20 years of Flux and hello to our new Director

As August’s Homecoming exhibition approaches (RSVP for our opening gala here), Flux Factory marks 20 years of collaborative energy through artifact, lore and friends.  As we look backward, we’re excited to move forward with our new Executive Director, Nat Roe.  Expect dramatic news and growth from Flux Factory this year!


The transformation of Flux Factory from impromptu art collective into pillar for exhibition, education and arts residencies has been a long and winding road with plenty of detours, rose smelling and…well…flux.  Please do celebrate 20 years with us at our August 2nd Homecoming gala and by taking home our accompanying publication.

This gaze backward follows quick on the heels of a new addition to Flux – me – Hi, I’m Nat Roe and I’m the new Executive Director here.  I’m thrilled to say that I’ve found a real dream job in joining the Flux family.  As a co-founder of Silent Barn’s location in Bushwick, I have experienced first-hand the power of collective thinking and action.  I am a firm believer in DIY as a philosophy that the most efficient route is not the best – that heuristic, collaborative routes during creation are as important as the finished project.  I believe that spaces like Flux Factory perform a massive civic duty for New York City and beyond, and that our model of coworking is an antidote to many of society’s ills.

Flux’s new director Nat enjoying a vinyl at WFMU

I first collaborated with Fluxers as an organizer of the 2012 DIYBA basketball tournament of art spaces.  I refereed the heated final round between Shea Stadium and Flux Factory, and was even accused that my biased reffing led to Flux’s 1-point victory.  I won’t comment on those accusations, but I will say some good deeds do go unpunished.  I’m excited to wear the Flux jersey in 2014’s DIYBA.

Flux Factory has immediately felt like a home to me in my first days on the job, and I’ve been amazed at the level of kindness, thoughtfulness and productiveness of our residents, staff and board.  Filling the shoes of my predecessor Christina Vassallo is intimidating, I’ll admit, since she left such a gargantuan mark on the space and brought Flux to such a high level of functioning and ambition.  I am immensely grateful to step into Flux with a balanced budget and general order.  Many thanks to interim director Doug Paulson for holding the fort down under heavy stress.

We will have some dramatic news and exciting initiatives coming up soon – for now I’ll say that I’m honored to play a part in pushing Flux toward a new chapter, and to continually raise this collective to higher heights.

Exquisite Contraption

Exhibition dates through February 2015: by appointment and during select public events. Contact Jason Eppink to schedule an appointment.

The Exquisite Contraption has been operational for two months! See how the machine has evolved, including all the photographs it’s taken so far. We’ll run the machine several times an hour and it’s totally going to work every time.

Exquisite Contraption, a collaboratively conceived and constructed machine that spans the entire building has facilitated a weekly “family photograph” since the official opening in February. Over the current year, the Flux community will exist inside the machine, activating it at the begining of weekly Monday meetings to set into motion a series of automated steps that move throughout the building to announce, instruct, prepare, and photograph those gathered. At the end of its life, Exquisite Contraption will have produced a year-long record of residents and guests who have gathered inside the machine.

Exquisite Contraption is both an interactive, building-wide engineering spectacle and a long-term experiment in creating a community ritual. The work will evolve over time as residents elaborate on the weekly tradition, respond to mechanical failures, and integrate (or not) the machine into their daily lives. Since Exquisite Contraption can be activated at any time, it will be available to the public throughout its year-long run by appointment and during select public events.

Created by Stephanie Avery, Ranjit Bhatnagar, Jason Eppink, Justin Lange, Adrian Owen, Amelia Marzec, Alex Nathanson, Nick Normal, Eric Petersen

Exquisite Contraption is supported, in part, by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
