Walker Art Center, Open Field Research Residency

WALKER FLUXUS REMEMBER

In this residency, I explored new approaches for interpretation and interaction with the international art movement Fluxus. Fluxus put process over the finished product, so it meant I could explore things other than labels and casework. The residency manifested in an interpretive trail across the grounds for a day that 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 I designed.
