In its heyday, Harlem was the cradle of jazz and everything cool. Places like Small’s Paradise and the Cotton Club hosted big names who drew in even bigger crowds.[/x_text][x_image type=”rounded” src=”https://quietlunch.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/rsz_picture_412.jpg” alt=”” link=”true” href=”www.fluxfair.nyc” title=”” target=”blank” info=”none” info_place=”bottom” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][x_custom_headline level=”h5″ looks_like=”h5″ accent=”false” class=”justify-text ” style=”font-color: red”]The Corn Exchange Building. | 81 East 125th, Harlem, New York.[/x_custom_headline][x_line][/x_column][/x_row][x_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” bg_color=”” style=”margin: 0px auto 0px auto; padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_column bg_color=”” type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_text]Still retaining the luster from its past renaissance, Harlem is now shaping a new glory. A shining beacon of Harlem’s glorious rebirth, the first annual FLUX Fair is the newest addition to the satellite fairs surrounding Frieze Week. Created by curator and experienced fair organizer Leanne Stella, FLUX Fair is part of a significant wave in the rising tide against stuffy, emotionless art fairs.

When you look at art, you want to feel something. It doesn’t have to change your life but if it can make you can feel something, then it matters. Catalytic happening in Harlem’s creative history, FLUX Fair matters. Schleping back and forth to these huge, maze-like fairs often become one boring blur. FLUX promises to engage attendees on a more intimate and edifying art experience.[/x_text][x_line][/x_column][/x_row][/x_section][x_section parallax=”true” bg_image=”https://quietlunch.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/rsz_picture_433.jpg” style=”margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px; padding: 45px 5px 45px 5px; “][x_row inner_container=”false” marginless_columns=”false” bg_color=”” style=”margin: 0px auto 0px auto; padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_column bg_color=”” type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_blockquote cite=”Leanne Stella.” type=”left”]“This is an exciting time for Harlem, a neighborhood that has a rich narrative – a deep-seated artistic culture, extroardinary political figures and stunning architectural gems, – as it enjoys a second Renaissance we honor it’s history and culture.”[/x_blockquote][/x_column][/x_row][/x_section][x_section style=”margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px; padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” bg_color=”” style=”margin: 0px auto 0px auto; padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_column bg_color=”” type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_line][x_text]Flux Fair is set to take place at the historic Corn Exchange Building on the northwest corner of 125th Street and Park Avenue. Newly renovated, the building will house over 60 artists and curators—of all different concepts and mediums. Some notable artists that we had the pleasure of interviewing include Ai Campbell, Willie Cole, Stan Squirewell,  Suprina, and LeRone B. Wilson.

On May 14th, Harlem, USA, the unofficial culture capital of America, will have its day. Be a part of history.[/x_text][x_line][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false” class=”center-text “]Visit Flux Fair ![/x_custom_headline][x_line][x_text class=”center-text “]
