Second Front performed Happy Birthday Fluxus a series of works celebrating 50 years of Fluxus performances. The performance happened simultaneously on Odyssey Exhibit A and at the Franklin Street Works in Stamford Connecticut. The event began with an intro by Second Front member Bibbe Hansen, followed by a live, streaming performance by Second Front and ending with a casual Q and A session. The performance was projected to a live audience in the gallery at Franklin Street Works.
The Happy Birthday Fluxus exhibit continues on Exhibit A on Odyssey and contains information on Fluxus and Fluxus performances as well as interactive installations.
