February 14th, 8pm+
Join us for a special Valentine’s Day edition of Flux Thursday that will have you ready to make a match for yourself or somebody else! Our monthly potluck dinner and art salon starts at 8pm in the kitchen, and then around 9:30 we’ll head to the gallery for artist presentations. Bring drinks or something delicious to share, preferably in the shape of a heart.
Throughout the evening Jason Eppink (Flux Artist-in-Residence), Kelly Goeller, and Adrienne Silverman will run The Reanimator Lab, a community-sourced, hand-drawn animated GIF filter. Long-time collaborating duo Lena Hawkins (Flux Artist-in-Residence) and Champagne Sequins will discuss their special working relationship and most recent art baby that is a mix of print, illustration, and experimental sounds. Sean McIntyre will present “Things I’ve Done To My Classmates”: a collection of his NYU ITP class projects that unwittingly involved his classmates. Flux Artist-in-Residence Christine Laquet will screen film excerpts and talk about what she’s working on while at Flux. Reid Bingham will present, “99 Cent 4 Life,” which touches on the multi-national industrial ballet that has made Dollar Stores possible, as well as artist projects, hilarious mistranslations, and other insights revealed by these ubiquitous store fronts of Brooklyn.
We’ve also put together a sweet deal that will help you reveal your secret crush and take the object of your affection on an adventure: for $5 you can buy a Fluxygram, made by our very own Flux Artists-in-Residence and delivered anonymously by Cupid&Cupid, to let someone at Flux Thursday know you care. You’ll automatically be entered to win our date-centric Raffle Booty, which includes a Couples Massage Workshop at Shag in Williamsburg, Dinner-for-2 at The Burger Garage in LIC, a 2013 Sexy (Wo)(Men) of Flux Calendar, and a few other romantic surprises.
