ABC No Rio and Flux Factory are proud to collaborate on the process-based exhibition, Against Competition/Towards Mutual Aid. Seeking an alternative to the competitive atmosphere of art production and exhibition.
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.
