This Friday, June 19th at 7:30 pm: Julia Santoli performs SEREY at Flux Factory as part of STROBE Network

Here’s an announcement from VCS alumna Julia Santoli about an upcoming performance of her piece SEREY that will take place this Friday evening in Long Island City:

I will be doing something at Flux Factory in LIC on June 19th. Doors are at 6:30, I perform at 7pm, and there will also be performances, installations, and screenings by Jantar, Julian Bozeman, and Jason Tschantre throughout the evening. Would love to see you there, but all will be transmitted via live stream through STROBE Network ( ).

Julia also provided a brief trailer (embedded above) and the following description:

SEREY is a continuation of Julia Santoli’s exploration of the mediation and mythos of identity. An apparition of body, movement-generated audio feedback, and voice—resonant gestures create an abstracted elegy for 1970s Cambodian pop star Ros Sereysothea.

Julia’s performance will take place at the Flux Factory gallery at 39-31 29th Street in Long Island City, New York. You can RSVP for the performance on Facebook, and find a complete schedule of events and overview of artists and projects on the STROBE Network website.

Here’s a little more information from the STROBE Network press release:


STROBE Network

June 12­-21, 2015 at Flux Factory

STROBE Network is a temporary broadcast network that will air via a digital streaming platform, featuring artworks that make use of broadcast as an artistic medium. The content has been programmed through an open call and the Flux Factory community at large, including work from 75+ artists. STROBE Network will create and distribute an alternate reality version of mass culture that is free, conscious, experimental, and uncensored.

Streaming 24/7 for ten days, STROBE Network will feature video art, performance, animation, talk shows, and music, as well as archival materials from Performa, VML, and ESP TV. STROBE Network will stream from June 12­21 via In addition to streaming via our website, we will welcome a studio audience for live tapings on select evenings at our sound stage in the Flux Factory gallery in Long Island City. Off­site spaces will host viewing parties and Strobe TV Toilet Viewing Stations at TBD locations.

STROBE Network is part of Flux Factory’s 2015 programing. Flux Factory is a non­profit art organization that supports and promotes emerging artists through exhibitions, commissions, residencies, and collaborative opportunities. Flux Factory is guided by its passion to nurture the creative process, and knows that this process does not happen in a vacuum but rather through a network of peers and through resource­sharing. Flux Factory functions as an incubation and laboratory space for the creation of artworks that are in dialogue with the physical, social, and cultural spheres of New York City (though collaborations may start in New York and stretch far beyond).
