They encompassed a breadth of genres, exhibiting, performing, and making art in hotel rooms. A transient backdrop in which selected artists were invited to occupy thirty or more rooms. The artists were challenged to transform their room into an alternative gallery space. Some artists constructed full scale installations that employed the entire use of space. Each room was distinctively characterized by the artist’s creative presentation of work and medium. Performing artist’s suites included, experimental music, knit-ins, performance art, poetry collaborations, and a number of interactive projects. These activities were complimented by two rooms reserved for music and spoken word participation, in which guests were invited to bring instruments and collaborate with performing artists. Many guests were seemingly disarmed, and yet, simultaneously inspired by their encounters. The curated environment, evoked a number of extemporaneous actions and performances in the hallways.
