Art Hotel Gran Paradiso

100 years, 100 rooms, 100 artist

Art Hotel Gran Paradiso is proud to announce the opening of the hotel’s 2013 season and more importantly, a new edition of its artistic activities. The hotel’s unique mission aims to bring all of its guests – many of whom have never had the pleasure of living and sleeping with an artwork in their bedroom – closer to the world of art and culture. While the most frequently repeated word in Italy iscrisis, this innovative hotel in Sorrento puts forward a creative emblem of hope: that of a powerful synergy between private business and the art world, so that new creative energies will bring us to see a light at the end of the tunnel

100³ : 100 years, 100 rooms, 100 artists encompasses the far-sighted ambition of creating a point of reference for art and culture in the Campania region, with an annual program of exhibitions and activities and a direct dialogue between participating visitors and protagonists in the International art world. In fact, the opening of the 2013 edition will be an unmissable, week-end long exchange between the artists, gallerists and art critics invited to contribute their exceptional vision to the small solo shows installed in each room. In a day far removed from quotidian reality, a carom of Art, Music and Poetry, with Dionysian muses accompanied by Bacchae, satyrs, wine and delicacies will unfold.

Cuore/Anima, apertura 6 Aprile 2013

The Collections section consists of a series of solo show rooms in which the projects are more site specific, while the lenders involved are not only galleries but also private collectors and art critics. This section presents more famous artists (some of whom are no longer alive), however, they are not eligible for the 100³  Prize. The 100³ section consists of a series of permanent room installations, each of which represents the site specific work of one of the annual contest’s winners. Amongst these, a site-specific installation by Takeo Hanazawa – winner of last year’s competition, who has subsequently dedicated himself to a series of activities that look at the link between artistic production and the spaces in which they are conceived – will be inaugurated. Thus, Yuki no Furu Machi wo, created during the artist’s residence at the hotel, is the second of the artist’s rooms to remain as a permanent installation. Here both ancient and contemporary symbols and codes are used to trace the limits of an aesthetic dimension, a dimension that goes far beyond that of reality and is measured according to the relation between natural and artificial, material and spiritual elements as they move on to find new intersections. With the aim of fostering new occasions for cultural encounters and exchanges, during the months to come a rich and varied programme of talks, book presentations, concerts and a workshop will take place.

Setting the scene for these events is Cuore/Anima, a curatorial project run in collaboration with the Belle Arti Academy of Naples, whose 2012-2013 N.T.A. (New technologies for the arts) Graduate course  was fully sponsored by the Art Hotel Gran Paradiso. The Cuore/Anima exhibition is the result of their work and will occupy the common spaces and the rooftops of the hotel.
