Kimpton Hotel Eventi Art Collection

Redefining Hotel Art

Experience our Manhattan art program

Kimpton Hotel Eventi is proud to introduce its newest collection of contemporary art, sourced and installed under the creative direction of Reunion Goods & Services by Art Consultant Kyle DeWoody, Associate Art Consultant Laura DVorkin and design team We Came in Peace. Extending from the hotel’s original design rich in texture and depth with a variety of fine art pieces from renowned artist Barbara Nessim, the new collection introduces a mix of both established, younger artists and emerging artists with visibly promising talents.

Moving beyond the traditional decorative intention, this collection attempts far more conceptual approach by showcasing edgy and thought-provoking works including Kwangho Lee’s hanging light installation made entirely out of electrical wire, and a Tony Matelli mirror—which is made to look dusty through a technique using layers of urethane. The dynamic collection also features stunning works by artists including Lorna Simpson, Alex Katz, and Ernesto Leal that flow throughout the lobby and fill spaces within Back Bar and L’amico.

Inspired by the neighborhood, The Chelsea Art district, which is one of the most important and influential art districts in the world, Kimpton Hotel Eventi has evolved itself to become a destination for art lovers itself. Adding its name among a list of uniquely New York cultural experiences in the area, the hotel, along with the High Line and numerous contemporary art galleries will satisfy any travelers craving for extraordinary works of creativity and genius.
