Flux Factory is a nonprofit art organization that supports and promotes emerging artists through exhibitions, commissions, residencies, and collaborative opportunities. It functions as an incubation and laboratory space for the production of artworks that are in dialogue with the physical, social, and cultural spheres of New York (though collaborations may start in New York and stretch far beyond).
The central guiding concept of Flux Factory is that innovative new works are created out of a rigorous commitment to collaborative processes. It is thus a forum that encourages participants to work with new collaborators, unfamiliar media, and within a stimulating and unique social environment.
An artist-run organization, Flux Factory is a distinguished cultural component of its Queens neighborhood and the greater New York art world. It produces four major and dozens of smaller exhibitions per year, runs a residency program and presents monthly events that serve the artistic communities and general public of New York.
