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.
We’ve recently joined a program with QSAC (Quality Services for the Autistic Community).
QSAC was established in 1978 by a group of concerned parents of children with autism. These parents strongly believed that people with autism were capable of living at home and, in some cases, participating in normal social activities, forming relationships, maintaining employment and becoming productive members of the community.
Twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, a group of autistic individuals and two staff members come by Flux and help out with whatever projects we have in the works. Their first project was to help us put up our summer show, While You Were Playing Rubik’s Cube. They have also started painting and drawing in our public space/experimental lab. One of the paintings, by Mr. G and Jamel, is now a permanent part of our collection. It’s pretty damn good. We’re very happy about the program.
