Flux Night rescheduled for Nov. 7

Flux Night, the massively popular art event that was postponed earlier this month has been rescheduled for Nov. 7, and hosts are hoping for more cooperative weather.

A mix of performance, installation art and musical happenings, the free, one-night-only event, called Flux 2015: Dream, will take place outdoors in the Old Fourth Ward, including the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site.

It’s the first time the event will be staged outside the Castleberry Hill neighborhood, where it attracted 20,000 people in 2013.

Among the activities scheduled for the evening is a performance entitled Disarm, created by Pedro Reyes, a Mexico City artist who has constructed musical instruments out of confiscated and destroyed weapons, including revolvers, shotguns and machine guns.

The instruments will be played by Bent Frequency, a performance ensemble in residence at Georgia State University

Another artist participating in Flux Night is Jennifer Wen Ma, the chief designer for visual and special effects at the Beijing Olympics. She will be using projections, lighting and smoke in an installation called “Bend the Arc.”

Flux Night takes place, Saturday, Nov. 7 from 7 p.m. to midnight, and will be located on Auburn and Edgewood Avenues between Jackson and Howell Streets, and will include Boulevard. For more information go to Flux Project.
