In recent decades, the art hotel has become a cultural phenomenon in major cities around the world. In Australia, the Art Series Hotel Group offers corporate style accommodation with a distinctly artistic edge. Each of its three hotels is uniquely designed and furnished to complement the art of Adam Cullen, John Olsen and Charles Blackman, respectively.
artsuite accompanies a research project, which traces the art hotel's relationship to the art museum - identifying curatorial and marketing strategies, which the hotels have adopted. By displaying works by Cullen, Olsen and Blackman, the exhibition draws the focus back to the art museum, in order to contextualise the art hotel phenomenon in relation to the art world.
