ART IN BED

We love the latest venture by The Standard Hotel. Imagine lounging in your hotel room, watching reruns of some tired old sitcom, flicking past Dr Phil for fortieth time that day, when all of a sudden you stumble upon some genuine video art from bona fide international artistes.

Each of the hotel chains’ four sites will be playing host to StandART – a dedicated channel on the TV in every room that showcases video art handpicked for the installation. Imagine that – culture without even having to get up! We’d most like to see Lee Walton’s F’Book, in which he re-enacts his friends’ Facebook status updates. If anybody’s in one of the New York, LA or Miami sites any time soon, we’d love to hear what it was like!
