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.

Perpetual Piñata Parlor, 2016
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 for several months in the museum’s Residency floor. Read Morgan Meis’ sum-up in Harpers.
