Spring is here and Flux is in motion. This month, in conjunction with LIC Arts Open we’ll host a sidewalk BBQ, exhibition preview and artist talks.
The artists invited to speak this month are interdisciplinary, working in a multitude of approaches and media, ranging through performance, sculpture, video, projection mapping sound-based media and creative coding. Roopa Vasudevan will speak about her technology-based, socially conscious artwork and give a preview of her exhibition “Hands Up”, a collaboration with Atif Ateeq, opening the following day at Flux Factory. Freya Powell is a Brooklyn-based artist, working in photography, text and time-based media; she will talk on the process of finding a medium for memory. 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. Kathryn Sclavi, current Flux resident, will present a streetside interactive installation. In addition to our talks, Ben Seretan will lead an opening meditation. And Flux’s own Carina Kaufman will be lighting up the grill for the evening. The event is free, but please do bring something to share!
