Li-Ming Hu is an interdisciplinary artist who employs a carnivalesque sensibility, to explore the relationships between cultural production and the construction of subjectivities.
Wednesday, December 15th
Join us on Wednesday, December 15th for Flux Factory’s Annual Benefit and Auction at Center 548, 548 West 22nd Street.
New York’s favorite little art collective is putting on a silent auction like no other! Not only will we be selling work by some of the world’s most innovative artists – including Dan Colen, Ryan McNamara, Bo Bartlett, Swoon, and Andrea Geyer, among many others – you’ll also be able to get customized “knock-offs” of them too! Knockoffs will be created on demand while you watch. We’ll have live silkscreening by Bread and Butter Collective, a performance by Alison Ward, innovative seating by Matthew-Robin Nye, video art by Jaime Iglehart, and music by DJ Sondies. There will be light food and drink, music, and some of the most amazing artists, all brought together in this historic and beautiful building.
