Come get Fluxy with us during one of the best art parties of the year!
|Date:||Wednesday, January 15th, 2014|
|Venue:||79 Walker Street, 6th Floor, NYC|
|Time:||Cocktails & light fare begin at 7pm, award ceremony at 8:30pm, with silent bidding until 10pm|
This spirited cocktail event will feature a silent auction of over 50 artworks by artists from Flux Factory’s extensive community that we’ve built together over 20 years.
Honor Harriet Taub of Materials for the Arts and Swoon with us–during the Scrappy Awards ceremony–for the enormous impact their work has had on Flux Factory and the greater cultural sphere. Get worked over by our roaming team of “knock-off artists,” who will be making customized copies of auction items on demand. Participate in live performances, a mega-raffle, installations, and interactive experiences to celebrate twenty years of supporting remarkable works of art that help us see the world in unexpected ways.
Entertainment will be provided by our emcee, The Fabulous LuLu LoLo; Fluxtime Photobooth by Jason Eppink, Sean McIntyre, and Reid Bingham; tarot readings by Leah Wolff; DJ set by Vernous; and bathroom valet by Jonah Levy, TJ Hospodar, and 0H10 M1ke.
Participating artists: The silent auction will include artworks by Fluxers and Friends-of-Flux Aya Kakeda, David Shapiro, Carla Gannis, Jean Barberis, Kerry Downey, Ryan Estep, and many others.[EXPAND Click here to view the entire list.]
