i live in here is now closed.
Flux Gallery and aceartinc would like to apologize for the work launched and performed on October 25 in Flux Gallery, i live in here by k. steele. We are utterly grateful for the feedback we received from members of the community about this show.
The exhibition involved an installation and performance that was harmful by trivializing experiences of homelessness, disability, and mental illness. Flux Gallery and aceartinc will not tolerate or be a platform for work that is oppressive. We failed to do our due diligence by not thoroughly considering the work ahead of time in order to prevent harm. We apologize to all those who have been negatively impacted by the exhibition.
The show is now closed. We are taking steps to create structural change to ensure that our actions align with our values. Our plans include anti-oppression training and increased consultations with artists in the lead up to their exhibitions. We will continue to discern what further actions are needed.
We welcome further feedback about this exhibition and the harm it has caused. We also welcome and encourage continuing dialogue on how Flux Gallery and aceartinc can improve our programming and foster safer spaces.
