Whether it’s a exemplary tale of great service, horror stories of run down rooms, stunning architecture or dream stays seen in films, everyone has a tale to tell about a hotel.
Vancouver Art Gallery has assembled a collection of these stories for their summer exhibit, Grand Hotel: Redesigning Modern Life, running until September 15. The exhibit showcases the evolution of the hotel from a utilitarian structure to a cultural destination.
Exploring 4 main themes; travel, design, the social and culture, the exhibit examines how each plays a part in the hotel. Taking its name from the film Grand Hotel, similarly the gallery examines the interactions of guests and life surrounding the hotel as a microcosm of modern society.
Grand Hotel: Redesigning Modern Life runs at the Vancouver Art Gallery at 750 Hornby Street.
Gallery Hours: Daily 10am – 5 pm / Tuesdays until 9pm
