Everyone has a hotel story. The hotel is a universal and identifiable symbol with extraordinary purpose. A space that combines the private and public realms, it is intimately connected to a rich history of social and cultural change. Grand Hotel: Redesigning Modern Life, up for its last day today at the Vancouver Art Gallery, charts the evolution of the hotel from an isolated and utilitarian structure to a cultural phenomenon that figures prominently around the world, elucidating its prominence in the public consciousness and reflecting the nature of the hotel itself: engaging, innovative, provocative, ephemeral, a laboratory of modern life. We’ve hung a shingle there — come see us if you’re in town.

We’re honored to have been invited by the Vancouver Art Gallery to collaborate in the Grand Hotel: Redesigning Modern Life exhibit. Installations feature some of our Ace Hotel amenities we’ve created with friends and a pop up gift shop with wares made exclusively for Grand Hotel, focused on goods made in the Pacific Northwest. Check in and check us out if you’re in the area.
