Douglas Paulson is an artist, arts worker, and teacher who sees each of these as pillars of his practice. He chooses to work collaboratively, intervening in public, social, and cultural spaces. Sometimes he asks: What kind of art are you for?
We’re celebrating by doing what we do best: inviting all our friends over for dinner & making more art than even we thought was feasible!
Join us onfor a banquet to benefit a Fluxy 2016. We’ll serve you a 5-course meal with open bar in the midst of a brand new group exhibition from this year’s Flux residents.
Year by year, Flux has become NYC’s most storied affordable collective art space, and we need your support to continue providing our 40 annual residents with space and support to share ideas and art. Life in NYC ain’t easy for artists! Flux has stood strong to protect creative freedom, low costs, and collaborative opportunities to retain innovative art in the city. Now’s your chance to stand strong for Flux.
The Meal will begin with a new invention from our neighbors at Dutch Kills Centraal, a curried farro with glazed baby carrots, sunchokes and medjool dates. Our Residency Director Carina Kaufman will prepare a sweet and sour grilled pumpkin with turnips, romaine hearts, roasted beets and pumpkin seed butter. More Flux Iron Chefs and local restaurants are also preparing their finest for the occasion!
Flux Artist In Residence Group Show: Roopa Vasudevan has curated new works from 28 of Flux’s recent residents for the occasion. To celebrate our big 21, Roopa has challenged Fluxers to produce new works within 21 hours. Our banquet will coincide with the opening of our A.I.R. show, with a special curator tour and champagne toast to kick things off. See our full list of participating artists & RSVP here.
