From hotel to art studio


During the COVID interruption in 2020 the new INNSiDE hotel at the Zuidas in Amsterdam had to deal with many empty guest rooms. The hotel asked Cecile to come up with a cultural concept that would involve students of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy.

In cooperation with the Academy, Cecile developed a project for the second year students of the fine-arts department. After presenting their ideas, sixteen students have been selected by a combined team of Rietveld teachers and hotel staff. 

The students were assigned to make site-specific work while using the empty hotel rooms as their studio’s. The end result was an exhibition throughout the hotel showcasing various art projects.
