The exhibition is curated by Irina Danilova at the Art Gallery of Kingsborough Community College of the City University of New York.

Fluxus Time explores the Fluxus movement and it’s impact by representing the conceptual transformation of life events into Fluxus Event Scores and performances, the creation of new events, and subsequent conceptual alterations of life itself. Such inventions during the experimentations of the 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s, conquered new territories for art.
