Saturn Return – Flux Factory’s 30th Anniversary Residency Group Exhibition

Flyer includes detail from Wieteke Heldens’ “Green is a healing color/ Green doesn’t sell/ Green Legend

Flux Factory is celebrating its big thirtieth anniversary by exhibiting 37 alumni of our Artists-in-Residence program. This grassroots community spans decades and continents and features work across all media.

This year we mark Flux Factory’s Saturn Return — born 1994, when Saturn was in Pisces. In astrology, the “Saturn Return” refers to a roughly thirty-year cycle that prompts re-evaluation of life, limitations, and the support structures we’re making. In typical Saturnian fashion, Flux Factory is in the throes of a midlife crisis while establishing newly-owned, yet-unopened venues. All the same, we’re too blessed to be stressed and can’t wait to premiere our new venue, Flux IV, and host our season premiere at Governors Island with a celebration of the people and ideas that have made our community durable through the decades.

2 islands 2 furious! This Group Exhibition will be held at 2 locations:
Flux IV
(56-21 2nd St, LIC) – An inaugural pop-up exhibition at our brand new venue.
Governors Island (Colonel’s Row House 404a) – We’re back for another year in our haunted house on Governors Island.
