Own This City: Flux Factory’s Not-So-Silent Auction

Not content to throw a mundane holiday fund-raiser, the upstarts from LIC artist collective Flux Factory shook things up at their Not-So-Silent Auction. Fluxers and their friends lined the walls and topped display tables with original works (check out some of the items in our slide show). While those attracted bids, less financially endowed partyers could spend $25 on a knockoff work by one of the carnation-wearing artists on hand. They would even create small alterations to the original. Matt Levy emceed the event in a teal suit, while Nato Thompson of Creative Time and Paddy Johnson of Art Fag City were honored with plaques bearing a gas mask and a loudspeaker, respectively.
