Flux-a-Thon 2016

Flux-a-Thon 2016

“A Flux Factory event tends to be animated by a certain kind of magic — creative energy that’s both thoughtful and DIY, a sense of play valued equally alongside purpose. Whether it’s a biennial staged aboard a Chinatown bus or a utopian village constructed in a gallery, a Flux production often stems from a wacky idea that almost sounds like it could be a dare. That’s part of the fun, after all — no one really knows how it’s going to turn out.”

“I miss the Fung Wah bus like I miss my younger self — some version of me that wasn’t mad if the bus broke down, or the bathroom wasn’t working. In the best-case scenario, the bus was fast and cheap, and I ended up exactly where I needed to go. It always left me with a story — and the Fung Wah Biennial gives me a new one to tell.”

“Flux Factory is channeling inspiration from the area’s many hotels for its latest project. In “Hotel Wars,” teams of more than a dozen artists, designers and performers will set up shop in three nearby hotel lobbies for the next few weeks, creating art projects exploring the relationship between the neighborhood and its proliferation of lodgings. The teams will compete against one another in a series challenges that assign a different prompt or topic to base their work off of each week, with a winner crowned at the end of the month.”

“I marvelled at the success of this project: Getting people to appreciate contemporary art is always tough; getting an entire neighborhood to work together on an art project for a long-term civic planning process is wildly ambitious. The fact that they have been able to achieve any of this at all is a testament to their dedication and skill.”

“Nightlight, an ongoing project of Flux Factory “explores creative uses of the sun” at the Bed-Stuy Community Garden. Flux Factory has teamed up with New York Restoration Project to install an oven that cooks food solely with the power of the sun. For three Tuesdays in July, a different chef or team of cooks, chosen by the Nighlight crew, will prepare a free meal.”

“Carina Kaufman, the project’s other curator, said the goal is to see it all as a playful response to the rapid expansion, which may have perturbed or displaced some longtime residents but has a lot of layers. Kaufman and Eppink stressed it’s not meant to cast the entire situation as wholly positive or negative. We were just thinking we haven’t done anything with the hotels around us … We’re also very curious, just who’s walking by the Flux Factory buildings every day.”

“This personal experience was the impetus behind her “party for immigrants,” which the artist hosted this weekend at Flux Factory in Queens, one of New York’s most culturally diverse boroughs. It was, however, decidedly not your typical Saturday night get together. For her so-called Immigrant Ball, Grokhovsky destroyed a cityscape constructed by artists Cayla Lockwood and Sarah Dahlinger through the choreographed debauchery of performers—who were also all immigrants—and the audience, allowing the participants to rebuild a new, more inclusive space to inhabit.”
