Flux Factory’s “New York, New York, New York” is “a multimedia, scale-modeal of the city. [But i]nstead of being an exact replica to scale of the city of New York, this project offers a mental map, a replica of an imaginary New York.” Basically, Flux Factory, the Queens alternative art space, invited more than 100 artists and New Yorkers to “contribute a building, a landmark, a street, an avenue, a block, a park, a neighborhood, an expressway, a bridge, an island, an airport—one or several elements of the urban environment,” all of which will be assembled into a real-seeming, pretty fabulously made-up model New York.
Among the many participants is Lost in History columnist Matt Levy. Who, as it turns out, will be one of the people on hand for the interactive performances making up the program at the exhibition’s Opening Night. Which is tonight. At 7pm. The exhibition is on display through January. So get your Fanciful Urban Theorist hat on, and go.
