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.
Impossible Tea Party was performed at the 2003 DUMBO Arts Festival as part of the Water Art section. It was an experiment in sophisticated not-drowning. Four floating platforms, designed by Fluxer Brian Matthews, were created as well as a floating tea table. Everything and everybody was dressed up real nice, like a Victorian tea party. Directions and semaphore flags were placed at the shore. The audience was encouraged to order a cup of tea by using semaphore signals while we floated out in the East River. It was our job to make a cup of tea by getting ourselves over to the table with ropes and small paddles.
