Not confined by gallery walls, Jamaica Flux is a contemporary public art project in which visual and performance art are displayed at a variety of locations along Jamaica Avenue in Queens, NY. The locations—banks, stores, restaurants, street corners, phone booths, parks, and other public spaces—are as diverse as the art. First conceived in 2002 as a pilot program addressing the isolation of the art gallery from the community, Jamaica Flux has evolved with the community in every iteration to reflect the pressing issues of the times and to advocate for social change through the arts.
With the intent to build equity and expand cultural inclusion throughout Southeast Queens, Jamaica Flux strives to commission and present art that involves the local community and creates changes in behavior and policy while also documenting the developments and contradictions that arise in the process.
Open Call Period: Feb. 1–Mar. 28, 2020
