Jaime Iglehart has been documenting the construction of the Flux embassy in Aarhus, Denmark for the project, The Infamous and Only Somewhat Ambassadorial Outpost of the Semi-Legitimate Nation of Flux. She's captured Fluxers in the wild, as they scavenge for materials to build a replica Flux inside the gallery of Spanien 19c and weave together an exaggerated Flux history. Watch this video to see Flux Artistic Director Jean Barberis explain the crest he designed to symbolize Fluxhood.
NYC’S MOST INNOVATIVE RESIDENCY PROGRAM IS NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR A RESIDENCY BEGINNING AUGUST 1ST
Flux Factory is a not-for-profit organization that has been organizing collaborative projects and supporting experimental programming for 18 years. Our residency program, now in its third year, is extremely competitive and has hosted over 100 artists and cultural producers from around the world.
Residents benefit from an engaged and creative community, studio visits, monthly art salons, and exposure to a large community of creative collaborators who personal practices and develop projects collaboratively. We organize ambitious group exhibitions in our gallery, while doing projects as a collective in other institutions in the US and abroad. All residents participate in planning programming, and sustaining and growing the organization as a whole.
Our building includes a gallery, a coworking office, a screen printing lab, and a wood shop. It also has a shared kitchen, library, and lots of amazing people.
We are looking for an artist, curator, or cultural producer of any kind, who will also be an active community member, and a friend who enjoys being part of a exciting and active social milieu. Participation in the residency program at Flux includes opportunity to develop and execute socially engaged and collaborative projects.
Residency periods are 3 / 6 / 9 / 12 months, and each artist must find their own funding for their residency, though Flux Factory can certainly help with this process. The cost for this residency would be approximately $950 / month.
Applications will be considered as they arrive until July 15, 2012.
