The artistic movement known as Fluxus was an avant-garde art collective consisting of performers, writers, poets, musicians, and artists. Although it was international, it had a strong presence in New York City. Loosely organized and founded by George Maciunas, Fluxus gained popularity in the early 1960s and flourished until the late 1970s.
Fluxus artists were not concerned with a particular style nor medium. Their main goal was to create art from everyday items and to bring art to the masses. Many of the works were performative in nature, consisting of a wide range of activities, which included: concerts, performances and happenings.
