Fluxus Look image

An evening of Chance, Randomness, and Uncertainty

Thursday, April 5, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.


Fluxus is indeed the name of a way of doing things. It stretches across the arts and even across the areas between them. Fluxus is a way of viewing society and life, a way of creating social action and life activity. – Ken Friedman, The Fluxus Reader.

As both an investigation and mechanical process, NC State University interdisciplinary arts students, ARS414, will be exhibiting a variety of new works: performances, happenings, poetry, sound, in the spirit of the Fluxus paradigm. Come join us for this opening reception to the Fluxus Actions exhibition and enjoy an evening of chance!
