It’s time to start the countdown to Modern Art 2014, happening this year on Thursday May 1st. This year’s applicants
were particularly strong so we are expecting an exciting show. Last year’s Modern Art gave us everything from the sublime to the absurd and this year promises more art to inspire, amuse and confuse. Over seventy artists will transform the rooms and outdoor spaces at the Modern Hotel into installations, galleries and performance spaces. So come on down, there’ll be something for everyone: art, food trucks, cocktails, music and, cross your fingers, sunshine.
This year’s entrants for Modern Art 2014 have proposed a wide array of fascinating ideas: a deconstructed car room, a flash dance ho-down, an ice fishing room and a living plant installation to name a few. We will even have the first ever Modern Marathon in which an artist will attempt to run an entire 26-mile marathon IN PLACE on one of the balconies. Bystanders will be encouraged to run next to him for as long as they feel is appropriate. If you don’t feel like running you can grab a cocktail and watch. Modern Art is always amusing.
