Li-Ming Hu is an interdisciplinary artist who employs a carnivalesque sensibility, to explore the relationships between cultural production and the construction of subjectivities.
We are excited to announce an OPEN CALL for our annual benefit! Flux Factory’s Not-So-Silent Auction has become one of the best art parties of the year, and we’re looking forward to making this one even more thrilling than the last. Check out photos from our previous auctions in 2012, 2011, and 2010.
We’re seeking a range of activities and experiments that will unfold on the evening of January 15th, 2014, at 79 Walker Street, NYC. Specifically we’d like to incorporate these elements into the festivities:
[EXPAND PERFORMANCES & EXPERIENCES]
Last year LuLu LoLo welcomed our guests as The Mayor, Bean Gildsdorf gave aesthetic palm readings to help guests decide on which artwork to purchase, and the Rainbroz made a mesmerizing interactive light installation. What would you like to do during this year’s Not-So-Silent Auction?[/EXPAND]
We are looking for an extroverted individual who will activate the crowd by encouraging bidding via silent auction, introduce speakers during our Scrappy Awards ceremony, and addsome extra special sauce to this spirited event. Let us know why you would be perfect for this job.[/EXPAND]
[EXPAND INSTALLATIONS & VISUALS]
Contribute your skills by creating a slideshow of compelling images, an absorbing video, an interactive installation, or some other kind of project that describes the important work Flux does or gets people in the bidding mood.[/EXPAND]
[EXPAND TAKE-AWAY ARTWORKS]
We’re looking for portable and/or participatory projects that guests can interact with and bring home with them, including GIF portraits, artsy manicures, food sculptures, decadent photo booths, etc.[/EXPAND]
[EXPAND RANDOM PROJECTS]
Fitting with Flux’s mission, we’re always looking for ways to create and collaborate, so let us know if you’ve got an idea that doesn’t fit into the categories described above.[/EXPAND]
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Auction Open Call” in the subject line, and include the following:
-One paragraph proposal explaining what you’d like to do or create for the event, what your motivation for participation is, and installation requirements (if any).
-5 images of relevant work or a sketch of the proposed project.
