It seems impossible to think that our 5th Festival was a year ago and that another LIC Arts Open is upon us. Every year presents fresh challenges and this year’s preparations have been very tough but what always sustains the team is the palpable excitement and passionate commitment of the artists, sponsors and community. We hope you enjoy the incredible amount of art on display at over 65 venues and spaces. The LIC Arts Open always features pop-up galleries and this year we have several Outdoor exhibitions, rooftop concerts, large scale murals broadening the range of work on offer. Walk the labyrinthine corridors of Reis emerge to 22nd Street to see the dramatic murals of 43-01 21st [Former Wills] or perhaps visit the Diego Salazar Roof Deck to catch some jazz before hitting the exhibition trail. In another of our signature locations at the Falchi and The Factory you will find over 100 artists on display in 6 different spaces in the two buildings. There are individual galleries such as W3, Resobox and Jeffery Leder, which will reward the determined art explorer. I have such a great team but I want to give special thanks to Carolina Peùafiel who joins me again for the second year as Festival Events and Exhibitions Co-Coordinator, and, of course, to the entire LIC community and our sponsors. Richard Mazda Executive Director, LIC Arts Open

Hilma Klra

The reach of the body is felt in the wind; lips shall not speak evil. The potter interacts with the clay knowing the risks of grains slipping between the fingers to possess a past form. Whether for affluence or failure, there is no greater delight and despair than this infernal trial that might bring tears or jubilation in a body that might never rest, and yet it is created from a humble—and magnificent—clay paste.To know that there is little meaning behind all this, after all, it being just a body of water and bones; we would break the coiling loops.

Fragile City Opening Reception 5-7pm

By using ephemeral materials to represent something usually conceived of as permanent – architecture - the buildings of Priscilla Stadler’s Fragile City series invite viewers to consider our vulnerability on personal and community levels, a theme that grows ever more relevant as the intense development of LIC continues. Communitea, established in 2005, offers the community of LIC an extensive artisanal loose-leaf tea selection, locally roasted coffee, fresh baked goods & nutritious comfort foods in a Mid-Century styled casual setting. Skylights provide natural light for dining, studying or enjoying a cuppa. May 19 - Jun 5 priscillastadler.com

Go Slowly, See Miracles Opening Reception 6pm

Known throughout Queens for her explosive poetry, performance, and curatorial work, this is LIC native Audrey Dimola’s first art installation. ‘Go Slowly, See Miracles’ is an immersive amalgam of hidden treasures and alcoves of memories, a cross between a lost boy’s wilderness hideaway, a secret grotto in the mind, and the gritty intersections of love, identity and nostalgia. It features a variety of never before seen mixed media art pieces, 3D poetry, found objects, sound and more- exploring wild spirituality, descents into darkness, reclamation and annunciation. The work is specially presented in this form for LICAO 2016. On view during festival. audreydimola.com

Anatomy describes the heart as the body’s engine room, responsible for pumping life-sustaining blood through the entire circulatory system. It is also used to refer to a person’s character, or the place within a person where feelings or emotions originate. Courage, determination, hope, hate and love seem to be the main guests housed in one’s heart. It has been used in art for centuries to represent love between two people. In El Corazón, each piece represents the passion and dedication to what I love to do best. daniel-valle.com

Installation by Richard Wilson Opening Reception 6pm

This is not 3-D cinema or an Olympic fireworks display, it is a more intimate form of escape generated with mundane and novelty items. This meeting gives rise to impossibly futuristic objects, situations and, ultimately, images that attempt to question the fabric of contemporary spectacle. At stake is the character of 19
