PORTO VISTA ART PROGRAM
In 2018, Porto Vista Hotel began working with 1805 Gallery Director Lauren Siry to launch an innovative art program that showcases contemporary local and international artists throughout the hotel, creatively activating unusual and unlikely spaces. Check out below what is currently on display and upcoming projects:
International Artist in Residence Brunno Silva from May 6th 2019- July 18, 2019
We launch the international artist and curatorial residency with Bruno Silva a Berlin-based curator exploring critical conversations surrounding the Moving Image. While in residence, Brunno will examine how video art has altered the art production landscape and share his research through a series of ten lectures.
Porto Vista Hotel 1st Floor Hallways Featured Artist: Ashley Fenderson
“Selva” is an installation created just for Porto Vista Hotel by Ashley Fenderson. Tropical plants on the property, as well as the hotel’s penchant for vivid hues, served as an inspirational springboard for the design. Lush foliage, vibrant colors, and Misty overlays are painted on large sections of crystal clear acrylic. Overlapped layers achieve an exciting level of depth and complexity, transforming a traditional walkway into a space activated by the changing light of sun by day and car headlights by night.
