FAU Calendar of Events for Week of September 6, 2010

BOCA RATON, FL (September 7, 2010) – Florida Atlantic University will host the following events:



FAU Libraries Host Inter-Florida Fluxus Tour at the Jaffe Center



The free event will take place on Tuesday, September 14, at 12:31 p.m. at the Arthur and Mata Jaffe Center for Book Arts at FAU Libraries, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus .


The Inter-Florida Fluxus Tour will perform as part of the Arthur and Mata Jaffe Center’s current exhibition, “The Carbon Alternative: 1980s Book Arts Subculture – Copy Art, Mail Art, Fluxus.” The event will feature a series of performances by artists Ginny Lloyd, Keith Buchholz, Reid Wood, Reed Altemus and Bibiana Maltos. Fluxus practitioners specialize in collage, sound art, music, video and poetry, with an emphasis on sound poetry, visual poetry and concrete poetry.  Scores usually consist of a few lines and descriptions of actions to be performed, rather than dialogue. Most performances are brief and simple, some are meant to blur the lines between performer and audience, and others are meant to blur the lines between performance and reality. The performances seek to elevate the banal, to be mindful of the mundane, and to question what is considered high culture art. John Cage, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, Geoffrey Hendricks and Alison Knowles are among the artists who practice Fluxus. Donations are encouraged.  For more information on the event, go to www.jaffecollection.org and click “events,” or contact John Cutrone at jcutrone@fau.edu or 561-297-0455.

Guests may tour the shop, print on the center’s antique Wesel Iron Handpress and learn the difference between pressing print and actually printing.
