This past weekend, Faile and Bast opened the New York version of their famed “Deluxx Fluxx Arcade” show. The pop-up gallery located in the LES (Lower East Side) of the city was subject to many rumors and discussions during this busy week of art in the Big Apple. Many who thought this show was imported from the recent blockbuster UK arcade show were pleasantly surprised to discover that the artists created a fresh set of machines/installations for this unique vision of one of our favorite childhood past times.
As mentioned in our visit to witness the setup/preview of this amazing event, the crew diligently worked down to the last minute crafting the robust arcade experience. Faile and Bast’s attention to detail was most impressive, ranging from the blacklights to the customizing of the very change machine which spit out specialized Deluxx Fluxx arcade tokens. Check out all the amusement mayhem from the preview opening after the jump.
