Hyatt Regency London - The Churchill Partners with Saatchi Gallery, Presents SPRING FEVER
On 27 March 2014, Hyatt Regency London - The Churchill launches 'Spring Fever,' a vibrant new exhibition of emerging artists from Saatchi Art, which will be unveiled alongside the newly designed Saatchi Suite in collaboration with Republic of Fritz Hansen.
The exhibition further cements Hyatt Regency London - The Churchill's ongoing support for up-and-coming artists, and encourages guests and visitors to interact with art in new ways, outside of the usual environment of a gallery or museum. All the works in the exhibition are available for purchase.
'Spring Fever' comprises a selection of works from Saatchi Art -- the online art gallery launched by the Saatchi Gallery to connect emerging artists and art buyers all over the world -- on display throughout the hotel's lobby, reception and restaurant areas. Featured artists include rising talents such as Gabriella Boyd, who has exhibited at the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition and at the Beijing Biennale; Tahnee Lonsdale, shortlisted for the 2012 Dazed and Confused Emerging Artist award for '100 Painters of Tomorrow'; and Timothy Hon Hung Lee, whose second solo show in March 2014 at Cock n Bull Gallery in London has been sponsored by Hix Restaurants and Bonhams.
The exhibition comes hand in hand with the unveiling of a brand-new interpretation of the Saatchi Suite - an exciting, contemporary art experience unlike any other in London. It will house iconic furniture from Republic of Fritz Hansen including a highly sought-after four piece furniture collection by Danish designer, Poul Kjaerholm (1929-80) entitled 'PK 4 x 20', inspired by Piet Mondrian's 1935 painting, 'Composition C (No. III) with Red, Yellow and Blue'. Kjaerholm's designs are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and other museum collections in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Germany.
Alongside the furniture of Kjaerholm will be works by emerging artists Hormazd Narielwalla and Tully Satre which explore texture through collage and painting. Narielwalla works with bespoke Saville Row tailoring patterns and won the only International Rector's Scholarship from the University of the Arts London. In 2009, Paul Smith presented Narielwalla's first solo show at his Mayfair gallery and since then, he has exhibited in London, Melbourne, Stockholm, Athens, New Delhi and New York. Satre has degrees from the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; his post-modernist paintings layer oil paint and strips of canvas on canvas.
For art and design aficionados, or for those looking to enjoy an individual hotel experience, the Saatchi Suite is a must-stay in London.
The exhibition is open to the public from 09.00 on 27 March 2014, free of charge. A one-night stay in the Saatchi Suite at Hyatt Regency London - The Churchill starts from £960 (including VAT) on a B&B basis.
