Artists for Flux Night 2013 announced

Image



The artists and performers to be included in Flux Night 2013, the annual Castleberry Hill evening-long arts festival, were announced this morning. Flux Projects gave the scoop to local arts blog ArtsATL, who note that, aside from long-standing Flux favorites Micah and Whitney Stansell, this year's lineup is completely new to the festival. The artists were selected by a number of local gallerists and critics, as well as London-based curator Helena Rickett.

Below, a few of the projects included in Flux Night 2013 from ArtsATL:

"Phototaxis" - With prescient timeliness, Atlantans Virginia Byers and Aria Finkelstein will address how surveillance changes the meaning of public space.

"Horse-Drawn Piano" - Atlantans Benita Carr and Bill Orisich and others will nod to Castleberry Hill's past (including its history as a red-light district) by taking a horse-drawn grand piano and music makers through the streets. Musicians stationed on street corners will respond as it passes.

"Untitled" - Using printed instructions, personal guides and voice announcements, Atlanta's CORE Performance Company will guide its audience to become performers.

"Half Empty" - Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre of Los Angeles will respond to building interior and exterior spaces.

"Array" - Atlantan Pablo Gnecco's interactive video-based sculpture will include portraits captured from the audience.


Head over to ArtsATL for the full list.
