Ginger Island is an uninhabited island in the Caribbean, part of the British Virgin Islands, where George Maciunas wanted to start a Fluxus artist colony and build a unique city. His plan was to buy the island and give pieces of land to Fluxus artists for development.

Together with friends such as artists Milan Knížák, Yoshi Wada, and actor Robert De Niro, Maciunas traveled to Ginger Island in 1969 to explore it before making the final decision about acquisition. This trip is surrounded by various legends and urban myths, involving encounters with the police and with poisonous trees growing on the island. The experience was rather traumatic; the visitors suffered from temporary blindness and swollen limbs. In the end, for a variety of reasons Maciunas never acquired the island and a Fluxus artist colony was never established there. The island is still uninhabited and the only visitors are fishermen and divers.

The Ginger Island Project includes an exhibition at the Emily Harvey Foundation of work by a group of artists that relates directly or indirectly to the Ginger Island trip, a film installation at the Storefront for Art and Architecture, and a sound project by Marina Rosenfeld at a pop-up venue in SoHo/Chinatown. In the project, Ginger Island becomes a metaphor for dreams, aspirations, blindness, visions, and creativity.
