Call for Work Entries are now being accepted for the Flux Factory’s Fung Wah Biennial. In March 2016, Flux Factory will serve as a work and rehearsal space to create, perform, and install works in 3 separate Chinatown bus trips to 3 cities in the North Eastern U.S. During each weekend in March 2016, a bus will leave NYC to venture to a new city and back. Artists are invited to create works to be presented specifically on the bus while en route traveling to their respective destinations. The audience will become a mixture of those who have knowingly signed up for the Fung Wah Biennial and those who are simply traveling by bus (i.e. innocent bystanders). Learn more.
