Debut of “The Ave” by ArtSite Awardee and Local Jamaica Artist, Jason Anthony Lalor In Southeast Queens

Jamaica Queens, NYC --- Walking down 149th Street or Jamaica Avenue after sunset, you will now stumble upon an eye catching new film installation highlighting the energetic Jamaica landscape.

ArtSite awardee and local artist, Jason Anthony Lalor’s new video installation is now on view every night from 8:30 pm to midnight for the month of August. In order to complete his vision, Jason partnered with local businesses CH Martin & Rincon Salvadoreno Restaurant to debut his film “The Ave” which aims to document and preserve the diversity and energy of Jamaica, while encouraging passersby to connect these spaces to their own memories and experiences.

 As a local Jamaica resident, Jason wanted to focus on his home and create a film for his fellow community members. His project is an observational documentary of Jamaica, both of the Avenue and the neighborhood, showcasing his daily commutes through the area. His idea was inspired by the rapid gentrification of the neighborhood and the importance of creating visual records of Jamaica’s changing landscape.

“I want people to stop, ask about the work, maybe share their memories of Jamaica and discuss how the neighborhood is changing. I also want people to walk away with a sense of the inherent beauty and impermanence of our neighborhood as we know it. At the very least, I hope people enjoy the views of the Avenue.” – Jason Anthony Lalor

“The Jamaica Center BID is pleased to support the Queens Council on the Arts in bringing this projected installation to Jamaica Avenue. Along with our many cultural partners in the neighborhood, the Jamaica Center BID seeks to amplify Downtown Jamaica as a central hub for art and culture in Queens, in addition to being a wonderful place to shop, play and do business.

This installation from artist Jason Lalor is just one of many unique exhibits that has integrated art, business and community in creative and unconventional ways on our commercial corridor and we are thankful that restaurant Rincon Salvadoreno and the department store, C.H. Martin, elected to provide space for this exciting new art installation.” – Jennifer Furioli, Executive Director - Jamaica Center BID
