Flux Factory
is pleased to announce its next 2017 Major Exhibition,
Tongue Tide, opening Thursday, July 6 from 6-9PM. The exhibition will be on view through Sunday, July 30 with gallery hours on Saturdays & Sundays from 1-6PM, and by appointment. 

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.

Investigating the ways in which we experience, use and understand words, the projects will take many forms including: games, performances, printed text installation, neon sign, nomadic library, opera, karaoke booth, artists books, online dictionary, video installation, walks, conversations over meals, visual storytelling workshops and more.
