INNER LANDSCAPE Multimedia Event to Premiere at Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center, 5/20by BWW News Desk - May 21, 2015
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Arica Hilton is a Chicago based multi-media artist and poet. Born in Turkey, many of her collaborations are with international artists. Much like the Luminists, the poetic art movement that captured light as it moved across the American Landscape, Hilton's works are inspired by the European Romanticists, who depicted cool waterscapes reflecting nuanced skies. Hilton's paintings and installations are intricately woven with her poetry and three-dimensional materials, which transports them to the present while still capturing a timeless quality that is ever present in her works. Hilton is co-owner of the Hilton/Asmus Contemporary Gallery. Until recently, she was the president of the board of the Poetry Center of Chicago. Her book LUMINISIM REVISITED will be released in May 2015. (more...)

On Thursday, May 14, The 'Mundo We Live In' art & performance exhibition will host an opening party for its show at the Paper Factory Hotel and Mundo New York restaurant in Long Island City as part of the annual LIC Arts Open event in May to showcase art and performances by emerging local and international artists. The work exhibited will present direct, gritty and revolutionary points of view that will challenge even the most jaded art aficionado. Running concurrently with the Frieze Art Fair New York, the 'Mundo We Live In Show' challenges more traditional ideas about artistic expression, a stone's throw from Frieze, but a world away.
'The art in this show deals with the worlds we live in during our daily struggles, defects, and challenges and shows us where we come from and where we are going - on the outside and the inside of our perceptions and fears,' said Julián Calderón, director of artist relations, JP Art Acquisition, who curated the exhibition. 'The show was designed to challenge visitors to ask questions, comment and most of all share their thoughts about what they see,' added Calderón.
Artists included in the exhibition will include (listed alphabetically):
Facundo Bengoechea (Argentina);
Julian Calderon (USA);
Natalie Graetzel (USA);
Zoltán Krizsán (Hungary);
Shawn Lefevre (USA);
Enrique Ortiz (USA);
Alfredo Echeverria Ripstein (Mexico);
Christopher Stach (USA)
'We selected these artists because their work presents us not with answers but compels us to question ourselves and the world we live in and create,' said Julián Calderón. You can see the work of these artists at www.jp-artnewyork.com.
In addition to showcasing art and performances, the exhibition will include curator and artist led talks and discussions.
The show was conceived, organized and drawn together by JP Art Acquisition, private art dealers based in New York and Los Angeles, that discover, mentor and manage emerging artists from around the world and help bring them to the attention of collectors, galleries and museums.
The exhibition was commissioned by Mundo New York restaurant located in the Paper Factory Hotel in Long Island City, a community that is fast becoming a cornerstone of art, design and fashion that's starting to rival its neighbor, Brooklyn. The Paper Factory Hotel has graciously provided various exhibition areas in the hotel for the event, as well as help organize the exhibits. The hotel is a renovated and reconstructed 100 year old paper factory, an ideal location for this groundbreaking creative showcase of art and performance experience.
The exhibition will be included in the 2015 LIC Arts Open, Queens' largest arts festival, which runs from May 13 through May 17. At this annual event, artists will open their studios to offer visitors a glimpse into their private world of the artist at work, which will also include innovative dance, theatre and music performances, throughout Long Island City.
'We are pleased to include 'The Mundo We Live In' Show in our activities this year,' said Richard Mazda, executive director, LIC Arts Open. 'The addition of this unique and creative exhibition will help raise the profile of Long Island City as one of the largest and most diverse arts communities in New York City.'
