Flux Treasure Island
October 21, 2022 @ 10:00 am – October 23, 2022 @ 5:00 pm UTC-5
10am-5pm Friday & Weekends
Flux Treasure Island is an island-wide scavenger hunt, taking place over Friday October 21 through Sunday October 23. Artworks will be hidden all across Governors Island in secret unexpected locations.
Strange nooks, wooded groves, long-disused forts: anywhere!
Cryptic clues on a treasure map will guide visitors to their destinations. Works will include site-specific sculpture, performance, video, AR, and more. They might respond to the local area and its history, or maybe they will play with viewer’s perceptions. Some pieces will only be visible at certain times, so everyone’s experience will be different.
Additionally, we’ll have performances by different artists. Treasure Island is a bit of a last hurrah before Flux Factory’s collective residency closes at the end of October.
Come to Flux HQ at 404a Colonels Row and pick up a treasure map. From there, the island is yours to explore. Remember: unless an artist says otherwise, look with your eyes, not so much with your hands!
