This Flux Thursday is in connection with a Flux Factory 2017 Major Exhibition, Tongue Tide. One view from July 6 - July 30. Inspired by Flux Factory’s location in Queens, NY — the most language-dense area in the world– Tongue Tide explores the multitude of ways in which artists engage with language, addressing both its tide-like ebb and flow as well as its limitations.is curated by Flux Artist-in-Residence Christina Freeman and Curator-in-Residence Emireth Herrera Valdes.
Greenpoint’s 1st Annual Human Chess-to-the-Death Match
Saturday, July 31, 3 pm
@ The School of the Future, Dougherty Park
A battle between Residency Unlimited’s Santo Tolone, a renowned Italian conceptual artist and two-time Milano Chess Invitational Champion, versus Flux Factory’s locally lauded Douglas Paulson, at Greenpoint’s 1st Annual Human Chess-to-the-Death Match. Please join these competitors on the sidelines, or better yet: on the battlefield. It will take nerves of steel to be one of the 32 pieces. This is not an exercise in standing still. There will be dance moves, cussing, war-cries, face painting, and many secret tricks up your sleeves. (Those sleeves, drinks, and tricks will be provided.)
To participant in this cruel game of wits, please contact email@example.com with the subject “RUFF Chess.”
God speed you, Chess Champions of NYC-based arts residencies!
