LA Phil’s anti-establishment art movement Fluxus, known for its frequently challenging music and performances, presents its festival in a survey curated by Christopher Rountree in collaboration with the Getty Research Institute. The movement emerged in the 1960s and comprised of international artists, composers, and poets with intentions to diminish barriers between art and life.

This years program includes a concert-length performance of Yoko Ono’s art and music by an ensemble of special guests including Sudan Archives, Shirley Manson, St. Vincent, Nina McNeely and many more in celebration of her 60-plus-year career on March 22. Other performances and concerts include Ragnar Kjartansson: Bliss, a concert that involves the final aria of Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro for twelve hours straight on May 25 and Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang’s crowd out concert on June 1.
