Opolis is the third manifestation of Flux Factory’s annual “Comix Fluxture” exhibit. These exhibits bring artists into the gallery to create comics narratives that also function as installation art. The ongoing objective of the series is to create works of art to be read intimately-
as a comic strip-but that also contribute to an overall installation spectacle.
OPOLIS presents Comix-Fluxture-as-city. A street plan of Opolis, an imaginary city, has been laid out on the floor of the Flux main space. Individual city blocks have been assigned to individual artists who have designed the buildings and environments that fill the city blocks (parks, libraries, schools, factories, skyscrapers, bars, theaters, shops, etc.) and have given life to the characters who populate these environments.
OPOLIS artists: Howard John Arey, Leah Beeferman, Gregory Benton, Beth Brandon, Daupo, Brian Dewan, Andrea Dezsö, Michelle Higa, Damien Jay, Jacqueline Lay, Ellen Lindner, Ian Montgomery, Joan Reilly, Bishakh Som, Nicole Tucker
