FLUX presents ALL Public Art Projects May 3 – 31, 2016 in various locations throughout Harlem’s parks and boulevards. The only contemporary art fair mounted in the neighborhood, FLUX Public Art Projects embodies Harlem’s creative spirit and cultural significance by bringing together original works by over 40 innovative artists – over 50 percent of whom are women. FLUX Public Art Projects is presented in collaboration with NYC Parks, NYC Department of Transportation’s Art Program and Marcus Garvey Park Alliance.

For the 2016 FLUX Public Art Projects artists were invited to submit proposals that responded to this year’s curatorial theme, “Changing Landscapes.” The topic invited exploration- be it ethnographically, ecologically, socially, historically, geographically, technologically or ideologically – of and inquiry about the concept of landscape and the forces that create change. In recent cultural geography, the tendency to conceive of landscape as natural and fixed has been strongly challenged. To assess a landscape, one must consider the relationship between humans and nature and the dichotomy that is inherent in this association. Never in recorded history has mankind been subject to the level of exponential change that we now experience. It has transformed how we work, play and communicate and also how art is created, exhibited, viewed and appreciated.
