Flux Night 2015: Dream
Join Flux Projects on Edgewood and Auburn Avenues, where art, technology and (a little bit of) magic will intersect, for one night only, to transform the historic Old Fourth Ward into an outdoor art gallery. The works are a mix of visual and performance art that will fill a five-block area and flow from the streets, through empty lots, up buildings, and into the sky.
This year’s Flux Night is curated by Nato Thompson of Creative Time in NYC. “There is something fascinating, compelling, and deeply urgent in the landscape of Old Fourth Ward,” says Thompson. “It is not only the historic birthplace of Martin Luther King, Jr., but this neighborhood speaks volumes about the potentialities and struggles throughout time at the confluence of urban space, race relations and dreams.”
Artists have been commissioned to create works inspired by Dr. King’s dream, and they will be showing these in the very neighborhood where he was born, preached, and buried. This could only happen in Atlanta.
While the historic neighborhood provides a unique context for this year’s audience to consider the artworks, Flux Night 2015 is not about the past, but rather an event inspired by one of the 20th century’s most germane leaders, whose call to action still rings true today. Indeed, given the current social and political climate in the US, Flux Night is, more than ever, art for now.
When & Where
Flux Projects produces exceptional, and surprising, temporary public art to galvanize Atlanta’s cultural curiosity.
