Opening reception: June 9, 1 - 4 pm Flux Factory is proud to present Bionic Garden, an exhibition that unveils how humans have adapted to grow plants in the most unlikely of ways and places. Works will be displayed in a range of environments that reflect the (often) limited environments that New Yorkers have to work with when it comes to exercising their own green thumbs.
Current Model Like New uses the car dealership – a signifier of class divisions, commodity fetishism, and globalization – as its impetus. Artists Daniel Keller, Katja Novitskova, Jon Rafman, and Amalia Ulman will create new works, which will manifest as two vehicles and travel to new contexts throughout the exhibition.
Curated by Loney Abrams, Current Model Like New is part of Flux Factory’s 2013 exhibition season, and is made possible, in part, by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, and by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
