Balfelt (DK), Douglas Paulson & Rancourt/Yatsuk, Walker Tufts, Ayden LeRoux, Will Owen and artists from Flux Factory. Curated by: Matthias Borello (DK) FLUX HOSPITAL is an exhibition on social art practices that use and address hospitality as a central human force and resource. Through the artworks presented in the exhibition, made by a group of international artists, FLUX HOSPITAL asks: What is hospitality and how is it used as an artistic tool? In the broader scope the exhibition questions the social structures we share and their capability to include, acknowledge and empower. Acknowledgement, empathy, dialogue and inclusion are some of the key terms ascribed to social art practices, and FLUX HOSPITAL is a way of discussing these as proposals to think, act and meet other human beings in hospitable ways. Not to simply attack the xenophobia of contemporary life and culture, but also to argue that dialogue and acts of sharing can lead to bigger experiences, knowledge and happiness. And what better occasion could there be to celebrate hospitality than the American tradition of Thanksgiving? The opening will include live-acts and the celebration of Thanksgiving with a potluck dinner (organized by Flux Factory resident Gil Lopez). THE EXHIBITION WILL BE ON SHOW NOV. 27-30 1-6pm PROGRAM: NOV 27: Opening (5 pm) Experience and engage in works by a group of international artists dealing with and using hospitality within their practice.
