Open Field Research Residency, Walker Art Center

This residency was about exploring new approaches for interpretation and interaction with the art movement Fluxus. Hosted by the Open Field project at the Walker, it manifested in an interpretive trail across the grounds for a day which played out notions of Fluxus in score form. Accompanying was an event called “Fluxus Drawing Club,” where visitors were given Flux Kits akin to the historic forms and drew listening to a family reading of A Child’s History of Fluxus, by Dick Higgins, the founding artist. Visitors walked the trail, drew scores, and shared them on a custom-built mobile display unit.
