Getty Research Insitute hosts online talk, Fluxus: What’s Changed? This panel reconsiders the international Fluxus collective and its expansive circle of artists. Long relegated to the margins of mainstream narratives of modern and contemporary art, Fluxus has since secured its place in the canon through its inclusion in major museum collections, textbooks, and a now-vast body of scholarship. Yet certain blindspots remain. In this panel, scholars Natilee Harren and Jung-Ah Woo join the curator, Marcia Reed, in conversation. Jung-Ah Woo is a contributor of Humor Has It, currently presented at Nam June Paik Art Center. They will discuss new ways of understanding the remarkably diverse Fluxus cohort, whose practices engaged racial politics, feminism, queer play, and environmentalism.
