TORONTO — Bisha Hotel Toronto has launched the Creative Collective — a new initiative, highlighting works from some of the world’s most celebrated contemporary artists — through a partnership with Taglialatella Galleries.
With locations in New York, Paris, Palm Beach and Toronto, Taglialatella Galleries’ roster of emerging and acclaimed artists includes Mr. Brainwash, Keith Haring, Banksy, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and Andy Warhol, among many others.
Creative Collective will launch with an exclusive exhibition by Toronto-based artist and designer, Ben Johnson at Taglialatella Galleries’ Yorkville location, which runs from June 20 to July 6. During this time, the artist will create a mural at Bisha Hotel, incorporating his signature typography, lettering and hand-crafted approach. The new work will line the stairwell connecting the hotel’s 43rd and 44th floors, leading up to the rooftop restaurant KŌST and the infinity pool.
“We want every part of the Bisha experience to be absolutely immersive in unexpected ways,” says Jacques Lapièrre, general manager, Bisha Hotel Toronto. “With more than 3,000 pieces of art, our hotel has always had a gallery-like feel. And, through this partnership with Taglialatella Galleries, we’re able to offer our guests even more access to original works to elevate their travel experience.”
Throughout the year, the hotel will play host to additional murals and installations from sought-after contemporary artists, visionaries and creative vanguards. Each artist will host an exclusive exhibition at Taglialatella Galleries to coincide with their showcase.
