Art @ The Surrey
Steps away from the city’s finest cultural institutions, The Surrey offers its own intimate collection of modern art, including two photographs, You Are My Own and But The Myth Of Love, by American conceptual artist, Jenny Holzer. In a hidden niche between the lobby and the bar is an interactive video piece by South African artist, William Kentridge. London-based artists, Jimmie Karlsson and Martin Nihlman, best known as Jimmie Martin, were commissioned by Rottet Studio to custom design playful residential furnishings such as an ornate armoire and a customized chaise lounge. The linchpin of the collection is a tapestry of fashion icon Kate Moss by portrait artist Chuck Close.
