STROBE Network is a temporary channel set to broadcast in June 2015 via live internet stream as part of Flux Factory’s 2015 programming. STROBE Network is a platform for artists to envision what they want out of mass communication that conventional programming denies. In addition to internet streaming STROBE Network will welcome a studio audience for live tapings at the sound stage in the Flux Factory gallery in Queens, NY and offer kiosks and viewing parties at a variety of off-site host spaces.
We welcome submissions for live and pre-recorded works that make use of broadcasting as a means of presenting artworks. We are interested in performance, sound, new media, objects, and video art. All media and concepts are encouraged to apply. There are three ways to get involved with STROBE Network:
