• Crafts Center: Fluxus Actions: Chance, Randomness and Uncertainty. Fluxus was an avant-garde art movement that emerged in the late 1950s, led by a group of artists who had become disenchanted with the elitist attitude they perceived in the art world at the time. As both an investigation and mechanical process, NC State interdisciplinary arts students in ARS414 have created a variety of new works: performance, happenings, poetry and sound, all in the spirit of the Fluxus paradigm. The exhibition runs through Nov. 15, with a reception on Nov. 11, 5-7 p.m. Free.
