  • Jan 1, 2014 - Dec 31, 2016

Fahrenheit by FLAX was a non-profit initiative dedicated to research and creation in the field of contemporary art.

Conceived by FLAX Foundation and developed by Director and Curator Martha Kirszenbaum from January 2014 through December 2016, it was an interrelated residency program with a space located at 2245 E. Washington Blvd dedicated to exhibitions, performances, screenings and talks.
