Former Flux Artist-in-Residence Lawman Lynch was recently profiled by Framing the Cause Pictures. The segment was produced for freeDimensional, an NGO working with international artists who are living in the United States under political asylum after facing persecution in their home countries based on their art.
May 27th, 4-6 PM
Reception at Flux Factory for the students, their families, and the local community
The students from Anne Kornfeld’s Media Arts classes at Newcomers High School participated in a digital collage workshop by Flux Factory artist-in-residence Lee Tusman. In this six-week residency at Newcomers, students learned how to create a photo essay and a self-portrait through an array of contemporary new media formats.
Using the online platform, New Hive, students constructed images applying new media techniques such as imbuing of the “selfie” into a complex composition and the use of animated GIFs. Students researched and created digital media as a means of inquiry and self-expression to produce their immigration stories.
A reception will be held at Flux Factory on May 27th from 4-6pm, for the students, their families, and the local community.
With generous support from: NYSCA, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts, and The Department for Cultural Affairs. In-Kind Donation Support from: Beija-Flor, Dutch Kills Centraal, Minuteman Press, and Coffeed.
