Press Release

FLUXHIBITION #3: Thinking Inside of the Box

Boxes, Cases, Kits and Containers from the Permanent Collection of the FluxMuseum in conjunction with the International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction


Did you think Fluxus was dead? A thing of the past? Think again. All the big names from the contemporary Fluxus art community flex their communal muscle in this extraordinary exhibition focusing on box assemblage. The FluxMuseum (fluxmuseum. org) in conjunction with the International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction (collagemuseum. com) has put together its third international exhibition focusing on specific aspects of Fluxus art practice.


Works by artists from all over the world have been donated to the Fluxmuseum for this exhibition. Represented in this show are artists from the all parts of the USA, the UK, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Greece, Germany, Hungry, Italy, France and Cyprus.


The exhibition to be held during the Month of July (1-31) with a gathering from 6:00-8:00pm on Friday July 10th at The Gallery in the E.H. Hereford University Center at the University of Texas at Arlington in Arlington, Texas. This exhibition is sponsored bythe Student Art Association at UTA, a student group that manages and promotes student funded, student managed art exhibitions.


This is the largest exhibition dedicated to contemporary Fluxus/Assemblage box artists ever assembled in the history of the Fluxus community. Box assemblage has been a significant art form within the Fluxus community since its early days. Inspired initially by Marcel Duchamp and Joseph Cornell, Fluxus box assemblage quickly became a staple in the Fluxus community to gather together small works and editions of works from many artists into group and individual box assemblages.


The call for this show got a big boost when Yoko Ono - who has taken an interest since the second Fluxhibition in 2008 - help spread the word this time through her website ImaginePeace. com and through her tweets. Even the New York Times picked up the story. In fact a number of works in the show are inspired by or dedicated to this seminal Fluxus artist.


The FluxMuseum is dedicated to documenting the contemporary global Fluxus art scene and assembling a significant collection of works by contemporary Fluxus artists.The International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction is dedicated to the collection, study and exhibition of collage, assemblage and all forms of constructive art.


See online at fluxmuseum.org and collagemuseum. com A catalog will be available when completed. Details online.
