In 2003, art lovers Darren Flook and Christabel Stewart created a one-room project space in their flat and welcomed artists to stay with them during the production of their work. Today, this project space has become HOTEL, one of the most celebrated contemporary art galleries in London’s East End. Among the many reasons for Hotel’s success is Flook’s and Stewart’s willingness to represent talented, up-and-coming artists outside of local circles. As a result, patrons can experience the mysterious paintings of Cologne-based Michael Bauer, the installations of New Yorker Carol Bove, and the insightful photography of Glasweigan Duncan Campbell.
