After heavy rain and the threat of a hurricane led to the postponement of Flux Night and the cancellation of the Afropunk Festival last week, Flux Projects has just announced that its event is rescheduled for November 7.
The one-night event, curated by Creative Time’s Nato Thompson, is taking place in the Old Fourth Ward. All 12 projects originally slated for the event will be on view. Among those are the Bended the Arc by Jennifer Wen Ma, for which Flux was doing some last-minute fund raising in the weeks leading up to Oct. 3. To date, the Indiegogo campaign has raised $5,428 towards it $27,500 goal.
At this time, it’s unclear how the postponement has impacted Flux Night’s budget.
“We appreciate the tremendous support from our community in the rescheduling of this event due to the inclement weather last weekend and we look forward to audiences experiencing Dream to its fullest,” said Anne Dennington, Flux’s executive director of Flux Projects.
Artists included in Flux Night: Dream are Sheila Pree Bright, Jessica Scott-Felder, and Stephon Ferguson of Atlanta; Center for Tactical Magic (San Francisco); Courtesy the Artists (NYC); Chris Johnson (Oakland) + Hank Willis Thomas (Brooklyn) + Bayeté Ross Smith (Harlem) + Kamal Sinclair (Los Angeles); Jennifer Wen Ma (NYC and Beijing), Yoko Ono (Nutopia), Otabenga Jones & Associates (Houston), and Pedro Reyes (Mexico City).
