FLUX: Ponce City Market, an art event exploring the iconic community hub as a playground of acoustic space, announces the lineup of featured exhibition artists. Each year, FLUX explores a select site through temporary public art projects, and this year’s artists will “turn up the volume” of Ponce City Market – manifesting the sonic qualities of the building in engaging, unexpected ways and bringing awareness to how the building exists around us and reacts to our presence – during the exhibition held this September 26 through 29.

Produced by Flux Projects and curated by artist and musician Ben Coleman, the event will feature works incorporating sound as the primary medium from artists including the following:

  • Eli Keszler – A New York-based artist, composer and percussionist, Eli Keszler’s music, installations and visual works use the environment, architecture and percussion to explore how sound and space transform locations.
  • Jane Foley – Jane Foley is an Atlanta-based sculptor, performer and sound artist whose sound works explore isolation and connectivity in public spaces, beginning with subtle repeated experiments in deep listening and reciprocity.
  • Mark Wentzel & Andrew Lackey – For their first collaboration, the two will combine Wentzel’s background with public projects addressing human perception and awareness with Lackey’s expertise in creating interactive soundscapes.
  • Otherpole (Kai Riedl and Éric Marty) – Otherpole is a creative research collective working at the intersection of visual art, sound and technology. Artists Kai Riedl (Durham, NC) and Éric Marty (Athens, GA) are also co-founders of the Slingshot festival of music, electronic art and tech in Athens, Georgia.
  • Talecia Tucker – Talecia Tucker is an Atlanta-based interdisciplinary artist and designer, whose work  explores the social and cultural nuances of identity in America. Informed by historical references, composition, textiles and cultural influences, her work provides insight into experiences that are usually private.
  • Tricia Hersey – Tricia Hersey is a poet, performance artist, theater maker, and community organizer. She is the founder of The Nap Ministry, an Atlanta-based organization that examines rest as a form of resistance by curating safe spaces for the community to rest via Collective Napping Experiences, immersive workshops and performance art installations. Tricia believes impromptu spectacles can bring awareness to social justice issues that paralyze our communities.
  • Unexpected Collective (Rebecca M. K. Makus, Elly Jessop Nattinger, and Peter A. Torpey)– Unexpected Collective is a group of artists who collectively create interactive experiences that evoke joy, delight and surprise. They met through a project at MIT Media Lab and continue to collaborate while living in Atlanta, San Francisco and Boston.
