OH Flux. Flux Factory is a complex web that encompasses an artist collective, an international residency program, a non profit organization, a packed schedule of exhibitions, events, and educational initiatives, and above all, an expansive, intentional, ever-transitioning community. anything ANYTHING highlights Flux’s diverse composition and the exciting and tricky balance of all of its ambitions. This group exhibition features artists who have taken part in the Flux community this past year, showcasing the individual work of both residents and administrators in the gallery. At 7:30 PM, the audience is invited to participate in a group performance led by Maria Pecchioli as part of her project Plotting the Urban Body. We’ll also be putting our culinary abilities to the test in a live Iron Chef Flux battle, welcoming a new bathroom to the house by collaborating on a new installation inside. Come out to Flux and see all that happens under this roof!
