Flux Factory is pleased to present Humorgous Smorgasbord, a group exhibition of artworks that utilize incongruity through live performance, video,sculpture and writing. Most of you probably won’t make it out to see the show. You’ll likely have other plans during the Friday night opening and performances on September 8th. Or let’s guess, can’t make it to an old-fashioned smörgåsbord dinner with artist presentations on Thursday, September 14th. So, what’s funny?
IRON CHEF FLUX: Saturday, February 23rd, 6 – 8 pm
Location: Flux Factory, 39-31 29th Street, Long Island City, New York 11101
Cost: free for the entertainment! $5 for a sampling of food!
Flux Factory celebrates the closing of our group show, anything ANYTHING, with a live competition of Iron Chef Flux. Come watch our most talented Flux chefs compete head to head in an intense culinary battle as we turn up the heat in the kitchen!
Featuring the extraordinary culinary talents of Stephanie “You’re out of your element” Avery, Nick “I’ll have my cake and eat yours too” Cregor, Aliya “Beyond Consumption” Bonar, Theodoros “The After Burner” Zafeiropoulos, and Georgia “This takes the cake” Muenster.
The event begins at 6:00 PM, when we reveal the secret ingredient. Cooking starts promptly at 6:30 and ends exactly one hour later. Each dish will be judged based on flavor, presentation, creativity, and Fluxiness, and then the next Iron Chef Flux will be determined by our celebrity judges Paddy Johnson, Steven Stern, Harriet Taub, Tracy Candido, and David Shapiro.[EXPAND READ ABOUT OUR CELEBRITY JUDGES]
