Al’s Grand Hotel (1971) with Public Fiction (2014)

Frieze Projects 2014


Frieze Projects New York,
May 9 - 12, 2014

In the spring of 1971, Allen Ruppersberg took over a two-story house on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, and converted it into a fully-functioning hotel. For the six weeks that followed, it was a site for hanging out, parties, performances and, of course, for spending the night. The rooms were installations, each one themed, the materials vernacular and the air, casual.

Purposefully temporary, the short-lived hotel remained a landmark and legend in LA’s history, highly representative of both Ruppersberg’s work and of the artist-run initiatives in LA’s landscape: laid-back, experiential and with an emphasis on entrepreneurialism.

In the context of the Frieze Projects tribute series, Ruppersberg?— staying in character as hotel manager, proposed a “handoff” to a new generation, resulting in a layered presentation of history with new experience. Public Fiction, both as a concept and a collaborator, represents the takeover of the business and highlights the mythic qualities of the project in LA’s art history.

And so… with two rooms and a lobby as canvas, Allen Ruppersberg and Public Fiction are re-staging Al’s Grand Hotel (1971) for five days and nights at the fair.

You can make a reservation, or just reach us at the Hotel, by calling 1.646.578.8471

For the guests staying the night, we have organized a special selection of movies and videos, a mix of classic film noir and contemporary film/video works by Deanna Erdmann, Dynasty Handbag, Tamara Henderson, Laida Lertxundi, Kelly Nipper, Benjamin Nuel, Laure Prouvost, Sarah Rara, Frances Stark and Kerry Tribe.

During the day we are open to all visitors for just hanging out.
See you there?
