In March 2021 Art in Flux presented 'Art in Flux: Reclaimed', an online talk held in collaboration with National Gallery X.
Art in Flux provides a bridge between media artists and established art institutions, reclaiming visibility for diverse voices within the art world.
This event, curated by Art in Flux, invited curators and activists to discuss platform cultivation, art communities and reclaiming spaces for underrepresented groups. The event posed the question, What role can independent art organisations play to facilitate greater representation? The event also saw the launch of ‘Art in Flux: Reclaimed’, a virtual exhibition that celebrates innovative media artists and showcases underrepresented artists, such as Women in Tech, LGBTQ+, BAME and neurodiverse artists. The exhibition, supported by Arts Council England, features work by Aminder Virdee, Aphra Shemza & Stuart Batchelor, Camiller Baker, Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley, Enrique Agudo, Kimatica Studio, Natasha Trotman, Olive Gingrish & Shama Rahman and Ro Greengrass.
