Death Match on Arts Funding: Follow the $$$$
Flux Factory and No Longer Empty join to present the last edition of Flux Death Match, a feisty debate series in which opinionated experts lay down their thoughts, and put their foot in their mouths over hot button issues. Spontaneous quips, grisly "smackdowns," and a punishing fog machine are the name of the game. But in true action fashion, the final blow comes from the audience.
Steve Lambert, visual artist and co-founder of Center for Artistic Activism; Alexis Clements, writer and current fellow at Cultural Strategies Initiative; and Deborah Fisher, Executive Director of A Blade of Grass, will tangle over the art worlds' most scarce resource: CASH. Where should it come from? Who gets it? And what should they do with it?
The series is organized and moderated by Douglas Paulson and Christina Vassallo.
Flux Factory a non-profit art organization that supports and promotes emerging artists through exhibitions, commissions, residencies, and collaborative opportunities.
