'Stay' at the Great Eastern Hotel

Commissioner: Commissions East

Simon Carter, Giovanna Maria Casetta, Emily Cole, Richard Dedomenici, Mark Dixon, Tess Glanville, Susan Gunn, Leo Hillier, Lyndall Phelps, Robert Sheratt, and Chris Wood

Representing different disciplines and working in a variety of media, the artists selected for Escalator Visual Arts in 2004/5 spanned a range of experience and professional backgrounds.

To gain exposure in London and commissioning experience, the artists created temporary site-specific work for a show entitled 'Stay' at the Great Eastern Hotel, situated next to Liverpool Street station, one of the gateways to the Eastern region. Inspired by the hotel's impressive architectural spaces, rich history and the secret life of the hotel guest, 'Stay' was a provocative mix of work in a variety of media, from painting through video to live performance.

'Stay' at the Great Eastern Hotel was part of Commissions East's Escalator Visual Arts programme, funded by Arts Council England, East and supported by the Great Eastern Hotel, London and train operator 'one'.
