G&S and Leo Kuelbs (Dumbo-based art curator) present Luminous Flux, a full weekend of eye-popping video art on the theme of FLIGHT, as explored through selected works, installations, live multimedia performances and VJ sets in the spectacular Galapagos Art Space. Luminous flux is the measure of perceived power of light. Over the course of our event, over 30 artists harness this power to present their unique interpretation of FLIGHT, with works ranging from abstract to whimsical to challenging to dazzling.
Kuelbs showcases video work in a unique 4-channel environment, a "living gallery" devoted to one artist at a time on four screens, all in one 2-hour looped reel that will be shown on all three nights. G&S concoct their usual wild mix of live performance, circus, spectacle and dance party, this time revolving heavily around innovative video work.
Luminous Flux will consist of four live showcases over three days. Friday's Fearless Flux takes chances with experimental, explorative, and exciting multimedia performances and VJ sets. Saturday's Space Flux joins forces with Space Tourism Society to present Yuri's Night, the annual space-themed costume party to celebrate the anniversary of the first man in space. Sunday's daytime Family Flux is a video and dance party for kids big and small, with puppets, spectacle and more, while the evening's Luminous Flux Artist Party is the artist reception and live video mixing playground, with each participating VJ taking a turn at the decks.
