In addition to programs taking place at Flux Factory’s home-base on 29th Street, Flux Factory produces programs at partner institutions regularly. Alumni of Flux’s Artist-in-Residency program are eligible to participate in these projects, which typically receive special accommodations for travel, public programs, and per diems. Collective leadership and Resident-led programming are always the source of artistic direction for Satellite Projects. But since it can be difficult for artists to get opportunities for funded projects abroad, Flux Factory leverages its institutional power to open doors for artists that might have otherwise remained closed.
Throughout August and September 2021, over 30 Flux artists gathered for our third annual partnership with the ARoS Museum in Aarhus, Denmark. Residents worked daily in the Aros Public Atelier and produced over 20 public events throughout Aarhus with local art spaces.
Throughout September and October 2021, Flux Factory was be in residence on Governors Island with artist studios and public events. Based at Colonels Row House 404A, Flux artists produced over 20 public events on the island.
In October 2021, 9 Flux Artists were be in Residence at Arts Quarter Budapest (AQB), one of Hungary’s leading alternative Residency spaces. Hosted in a former brewery, AQB supports Artist Residencies, festivals, exhibitions and more. Flux artists created new works together while in Residence and participate in the Open House festival.
Flux Factory produced large group Residencies at the ARoS Museum in August and September of both 2018 and 2019. What seemed a high water mark has become a regular annual opportunity.
September 2016, 7 Flux artists were invited by CEC Arts Link to the Art Prospect Festival in St. Petersburg, Russia. Our group created the Perpetual Piñata Parlour, which we performed for 4 days throughout the festival. This project combined traditional Russian and American games, which participants were invited to play.
Arguably the first major project that Flux Factory collectively produced was at the Queens Museum, where artists worked together to produce art and mischief. Read Morgan Meis’ sum-up in Harpers.
