    Modern Art 2012 is rapidly approaching which gives us a fluttery feelings in our bellies.  It also allows us to visit the ghost of Modern Art past.  We particularly love this video shot and edited by Modern Art’s faithful documentarian, Andy Lawless.  It stars everyone’s favorite Renaissance Man, Michael Baltzell, and gives a great overview of the marvel that was Modern Art 2010.  So many great rooms, artists and installations!  Worthy of a look, if only to hear Enrico Caruso played on the gnome record player in the bathroom.

  • A room, a hare, Bill and Kirsten

    February 22nd, 2012 by webAdmin

    For Modern Art 2010, artists Bill Lewis and Kirsten Furlong collaborated in Room 117.  Using the work of the German performance/installation artist, sculptor and art theorist Joseph Beuys as inspiration, Lewis and Furlong spent the whole of Modern Art within their room in a tableau vivant.  Take a look at the photos below and marvel at the dramatic incidental scene that they were able to create!  Then be sure not to miss Modern Art 2012 at the Modern Hotel on May 3rd.
