All Good Things Must Come to an End

It saddens us to inform you that the Center for the Holographic Arts will be leaving the Clock Tower of LIC on April 13th. This gorgeous 1926 art deco bank building, which was the tallest building in Queens for over sixty years, has been sold. We've been overjoyed to call this space our home for the past nine months. Filling it's soaring lobby space with the extraordinary holograms, 3D films and music of our wonderful community has been a pleasure. The opportunity to operate out of the classic bank vault, showing the public seminal works from the pioneers of holography alongside fresh visions from emerging artists has been an incredible experience.

We are currently looking for a new space - please contact us if you have any potential venues for the gallery, the library and archive or where we could build up a teaching and production studio.

Only Two More Weekends to See <<Uncertain Worlds>>

Friday and Saturday, 2pm-6pm. Ends April 5th

The aesthetic qualities of the holographic image such as evanescence, transparent volume, emanation of light and dynamic viewing serve Philippe Boissonnet to underscore the precarious nature of the visible itself.  Playing with the holographic perceptual phenomenon, and sometimes interactive control systems, he is pointing out the cultural importance of beings’ disembodiment and of images’ fleetingness in our technologically perceived reality.  This selection of his installations, through the last 20 years, destabilizes the viewer's certainties with respect to their concept of the real and its supposed stability.

Say Goodbye at our Farewell Extravaganza

Friday April 11th, 8pm-2am

Come celebrate with the Holocenter before we leave this extraordinary location! Come find out why New York Magazine named us in their Best of NY 2014 issue as "Best Mind Trip". Come for music, holograms, projections, performers, interactive installations, food, and drinks. Step into the vault one last time and enter the ephemeral world of holographic art. 

Come say goodbye to the Clock Tower of LIC.
