10 AM – 8 PM On view
City with a Diamond Heart by Hui-Ying Tsai
Hui-Ying Tsai is interested in the fragile border of home and the sense of belonging. Home is a verb and an action. The living beings set up the boundary to push outward, and the line is pushed in constantly. The border of a home is constantly being recreated and altered, which suggests that a sense of home must be constantly in flux and that living being must always work toward home wherever we might be. One must live and perform home in order to define it. Hui-Ying will construct from the ruins of the previous cities on-site and create a shelter around her body. To chew, to spit, to tear, to build like an animal.
8 PM – 10 PM
Experimental performances and music curated by Patricio Jijón
Patricio Jijón and Max Abeles are organizing experimental performances with musicians who are primarily also visual artists, all under the auspices of activating the city with a different energy, bringing different communities together and the spirit of improvisation. Abeles will activate the space wearing post apocalyptic costume-like kinetic sculptures made from recycled materials, augmented to be instruments themselves, to create an atmosphere of catharsis and rebirth.

About Flux City 6
Flux City 6 is an homage to the temporary communities of Flux Factory and an exploration of cities as created and idealized by individuals and small groups. During each week an artist will create a city, or their interpretation of city-ness in the Flux Factory gallery creating a broad and all encompassing installation work which culminates in a public opening for that city and a destruction event meant to bring about its end – organized by a separate artist or group. Each week the City builders will repurpose the materials left behind by those who came before as we collectively meditate upon cycles of politics, ownership, creation and destruction.
Flux City 6 is a four week cycle of city creation and destruction and rebirth and cataclysm and phoenix-rising-from-the-ashes and Godzilla-traipsing-in-from-the-sea-in-a-breath-of-fire-and-chaos. Flux City 6 is curated by Seth Timothy Larson and Abigail Entsminger.
