Flux Factory is pleased to announce its next 2017 Major Exhibition, Tongue Tide. This exhibition is curated by Flux Artist-in-Residence Christina Freeman and Curator-in-Residence Emireth Herrera Valdes.
Inspired by Flux Factory’s location in Queens, NY -- the most language-dense area in the world-- Tongue Tide explores the multitude of ways in which artists engage with language, addressing both its tide-like ebb and flow as well as its limitations.
Investigating the ways in which we experience, use and understand words, the projects will take many forms including: games, performances, printed text installation, neon sign, nomadic library, opera, karaoke booth, artists books, online dictionary, video installation, walks, conversations over meals, visual storytelling workshops and more.
