On June 1, Kitty City was inaugurated during a festive ribbon cutting ceremony involving 24 cats, 18 school-aged kids who helped build the city, and hundreds of visitors lined up to interact with the inhabitants. Kittens explored the thriving “meowtropolis” made entirely out of salvaged materials, finding places to leap, stretch, slumber and just be adorable in peace.
Flux Factory is comprised of an ever-expanding network–a family, really–of talented individuals who consistently breathe energy and excitement into the organization. In this interview with Exhibition A, Flux Factory board member Nick Griffin proclaims his love of Flux. When asked to name artists who people should know about, he said:
I’m going to suggest that collectors look at work being done by a variety of up-and-coming artists associated with the Flux Factory art collective in LIC. There is a vibrance and connection that just feels very tangible and relevant to me and captures a certain zeitgeist that I don’t see reflected as much in more established galleries these days.
