More Info


For the ambitious (and salacious-sounding) exhibition "50,000 Beds," Brooklyn-based multimedia artist Chris Doyle commissioned 45 fellow artists to make short videos, each set in a different hotel or motel in Connecticut. The videos were shown concurrently--in specially designed multi-screen galleries--at Connecticut's three premier contemporary art venues, which opened on three consecutive nights: The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Artspace in New Haven and Real Art Ways in Hartford. Doyle's concept focuses on the hotel as a site of narrative potential, a location that is intimate, anonymous and infused with tension between the guests and the staff. All 45 artists included in the exhibition--a range of contemporary emerging artists who came up with a diversity of responses to the challenge posed, from fiction to documentary to animation--are included in this attractive volume bound in faux suede.
