An international art movement of the 1960s and 1970s, Fluxus—whose name was based on the Latin word flux, meaning constant flow or change—brought together artists working in music, poetry, film, theater, and the visual arts. The movement challenged the commodification of art and favored nontraditional modes of expression, such as collective performances, inexpensive publications, and unlimited editions of small objects. This special installation of posters, newspapers, Fluxus editions, films, and photographs celebrates the recent gift by Gilbert and Lila Silverman of their renowned Fluxus collection.

Organized by Christophe Cherix, Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books, with Jon Hendricks, Fluxus Consulting Curator.
