Fluxus is an exploration of art conversation. The first examples of Fluxus date back to John Cage’s famous class at The New School, where artists such as George Brecht, Allan Kaprow, and Alison Knowles began to create art works and performances in musical form. Artist George Maciunas organized the first Fluxus event at the AG Gallery in NYC in 1961.
