Art In FLUX Harlem is a series of pop-up art galleries in central Harlem featuring Harlem artists with opening nights and interactive events. FLUX highlights and creates opportunity for artists living and/or working in Harlem, brings art into the center of the community and stimulates a vibrant neighborhood merging art, commerce and community.
Their first and current show is: “Urban Environment Project”. In this show they are presenting the art works of seven international artists: Montserrat Daubon, Ellen Hackl Fagan, Hiroshi Jashiki, Leslie Powell, Anya Roz, Tafa, and Pedro Villalta. Curated by Mariano Cinat, the exhibition explores how these seven exceptional artists use painting, sculpture, photography and mixed media to express their visions of this dynamic neighborhood. This project explores the impact the urban environment has on an artist and how their work reflects the spirit and vitality of the community. It also explores how their individual backgrounds and cultural influences impact their perceptions of Harlem and New York City. The visual voice of the participating artists are incited by the city’s energy, attitude, and visceral qualities and translated into color, texture, movement and story.
Art in FLUX Harlem has been proud to present the work of these seven skilled and imaginative artists during the month of May. They invite Harlemites to visit this show which will be open only until May 24. You’ll have the opportunity to discover Harlem through the eyes and perception of these exceptional artists. And visit their site to get information on their next show and interactive events.
Five percent of gallery sales in May and June will be donated to Artistic Noise, an arts and entrepreneurship program for youth involved in the juvenile justice system.
Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat, Noon to 7pm; Sundays, Noon to 5pm and upon appointment.
