Come party with us and celebrate an exciting year of programming at Flux Factory’s Not-So-Silent Auction. This spirited cocktail event will feature a silent auction of over 75 artworks by NYC’s rising stars and celebrated artists who reflect the scope of Flux Factory’s extensive community.
We will honor Martha Wilson, artist and founding director of Franklin Furnace, and Shelley Rubin, founder and chair of A Blade of Grass, for the work they are doing to support artists who engage with diverse audiences and interests. Expect a bountiful open bar with free-flowing cocktails, tasty hors d’oeurves, jpg light portraits in The Rainbow Machine by Double One Design (Reid Bingham & Sean McIntyre), aesthetic palm readings by Bean Gilsdorf, and a steady stream of entertainment provided by DJ We Are Architects and our emcee Daupo. There will be a dedicated team of “knock-off artists” working the crowd and making customized copies of auction items on demand, including Stephanie Avery, Louise Barry, Aliya Bonar, Doulgas Paulson, Angela Washko, and Alex Young. We’ll also debut a new Flux logo silk screened on tote bags, designed by one of our very own Flux Artists-in-Residence, as well as our 2013 Sexy (Wo)(Men) of Flux calendar.
Participating artists: The silent auction will include artworks by Daniel Bejar, Eric Doeringer, Carla Gannis, Jason Lazarus, Michelle Levy, John Powers, William Powhida, Ward Shelley, SWOON, Martha Wilson, and many others.
