Masterclass with live Q&A 26 June, 2.30-3.30pm
Online event as part of the talks and workshop program by Bournemouth University for the 'Once Upon a Time in Animation' exhibition at Poole Museum.
Art in Flux has announced FLUX Live, a series of online events consisting of performance masterclasses with a live Q&A. FLUX Live events are specifically focused on making multimedia performances accessible to young people and art students.
For the first FLUX Live in 2021, Art in Flux is delighted to announce a partnership with international studio Kimatica, who will be presenting their very first public masterclass.
Maria Almena, Kimatica’s director, will be sharing a decade worth of expertise on creating multimedia performances. The master class will focus on sharing Kimatica's creative process, methodologies and techniques in order to inspire and guide young artists to create their own.
Kimatica’s Creative Director and co-founder of Art in Flux María Almena says:
“As an artist and director who has specialised in multimedia performances since 2010, and comes from the grass-roots art scene in London, I strongly believe in the democratisation of art knowledge, and allowing everyone the same opportunities. This is why I decided to create this masterclass - in order to teach young creatives how to create their own multimedia shows with accessible tools”.
Tickets cost £5 and can be bought here:

About ART IN FLUX
Founded in 2016 at Light of Soho in London by the artists Maria Almena, Oliver Gingrich and Aphra Shemza, ART IN FLUX is a charitable organization committed to furthering the development of the media arts community in the UK. As an artist-led forum, FLUX offers a space for collaboration and exchange as key artists and organizations come together to profile their work. Through talks events, performance evenings, workshops and exhibitions, FLUX brings these ideas to the wider public - providing a fluid platform to discuss strategies, processes and collective themes within the media arts.
ART IN FLUX has grown into a thriving network of over 3000+, with an active artist population engaging in regular meet-ups for talks, conferences, presentations, and exhibitions. In July, they curated their second annual exhibition, ART IN FLUX at Event Two, held at the Royal College of Art, showcasing some of the most cutting-edge media artists working today alongside historical computational artworks from the Computer Art Society’s collection. Following the exhibition, a selection of work was then exhibited at the V&A Digital Design Weekend in September. In this collaboration with National Gallery X, ART IN FLUX continues to connect researchers, artists and the general public.
