Celebrate with hundreds of your closest friends in support of one of New York City’s most unique and longstanding residency programs. This benefit event supports Flux’s 2015 operations – over 50 artists-in-residence, who produce over 40 exhibits, concerts and workshops in addition to 4 major annual group exhibitions. Additionally, we will host a 2 week opportunity for online bidding, beginning April 8th, hosted on Paddle8. The gala is always a fabulous time, with an open bar, light fare, DJs, sideshows, and of course the art – over 75 works from Flux artists-in-residence and friends such as Genesis P-Orridge, Swoon, Ward Shelley, Cecily Brown and a very, very many more.
We’re humbled to include this year’s guests of honor, Alanna Heiss (founder of PS1, director/founder of Clocktower) and Pablo Helguera (pioneering social engagement artist, MoMA’s Director of Adult and Academic Programs, Department of Education). The auction is presented in loving memory of old-school Flux resident Matthew Powers.
