A short documentary by Isabella Wing-Davey
Premiere: London International Documentary Festival (2012)
NOT HOTEL ART is a 5 minute short documentary film about the interaction between culture and the corporate world. It is a wry look at the function of art in the workplace; the nature of corporate art and whether it can ever truly break free of the ‘hotel art’ stigma. What is the role of art in the corporate environment? How does it affect those who work in the spaces, and the nature of spectatorship- is it valid exhibition if those working around it don’t choose it, and if they don’t look at it? The central characters are those hanging the art, and the office workers provide the comedy and humanity.
