Flux Factory AiR
Flux Factory AiR
Flux Factory is a 23 year old non-profit arts organization, artist collective and international residency program located in Long Island City, Queens, NYC, one subway stop away from Manhattan. They are committed to building a sustainable community for diverse cultural producers, including visual artists, builders, curators, community organizers, chefs, activists, musicians, writers, and others.
Flux Factory cultivates a spirit of openness and generosity through a unique collaborative and participatory approach to realizing its residency and public programs. Fluxers benefit from an immersive environment that encourages experimentation and peer to peer resource sharing. Residents work together to shape and realize Flux’s expansive programming, proposing and leading exhibitions and educational events. Flux Factory nurtures individual practices by offering professional development opportunities, including one-on-one studio visits, group field trips, collaborative projects, gallery time and monthly salons. Their labyrinthine building includes 16 studios, a gallery, silkscreen studio, woodshop, co-working office, communal kitchen, library, and rooftop garden. Check the residency page for more information and photos.
They are currently looking for cultural producers of all kinds to join the Flux community for 3, 6, 9 or 12 month residencies starting in the winter 2017/2018 and Spring 2018. Each resident is responsible for their own funding, however Flux Factory works with partnership organizations that assist some residents. The application is done online, with deadline September 15th.
