Design & Build workshops: every weekend in May; Ribbon-cutting & Adoption drive: June 1st. Artists and city planners will collaborate with elementary schools students to design and build a thriving meow-tropolis: Kitty City.
Opening reception: Thursday, June 16, starting at 1 pm
Flux Factory is teaming up with Bifrost, a school for adults with mental handicaps in Randers, Denmark. The project is designed to facilitate a dialogue between two seemingly disparate arts institutions devoted to fostering creativity.
Kenneth Rasmussen, an artist from the Bifrost school, has constructed an enormous bikini made of plastic bags, now installed in the Flux courtyard. In return, Flux Factory has developed a set of instructions so that Bifrost participants may create an installation that references communication between the two institutions: a telephone booth with a tin-can phone.
Simultaneously–with a six hour time difference–Bifrost and Flux Factory will be hosting opening receptions at their respective venues to celebrate their new installations, on Thursday June 16.
