The Peninsula Chicago is hosting an art installation featuring Chicago artist Bob Faust. Titled “with all, and still …”, the exhibit runs through 2021 and is on display in the fifth-floor lobby. The exhibit is part of The Peninsula Hotels’ Art in Resonance program, a global initiative in support of contemporary architecture.
The “with all, and still …” installation is a series of layered, billboard-scaled works created from photographic details Faust captured in several of Chicago’s 77 neighborhoods. The digital images are the main medium to create new artwork that looks different when seen from different vantage points. At a distance, formal patterns and colors draw in a viewer, who will see the actual subject of the photo when viewing at closer distance. Letterforms pulled from the exhibition title act as flash paint connectors, linking each of the seven works to one another and adding context to the installation. A QR code allows guests to view the photographs at the origin of each work and learn more about the Chicago neighborhoods featured.
“with all, and still… is a contemporary statement about the place and moment,” said artist Bob Faust. “I am blessed that my work and life places me regularly in many of our city’s great neighborhoods, rich with color, texture and surprising juxtapositions. I have made it part of my practice to catalog inspiring images when I come across them, and this project allowed me the opportunity to reach back as well as collect more of them to develop this new series of work. I love the idea of contrasting exceptional vignettes of everyday details, from often overlooked sites around the city, with showing them on the Magnificent Mile against the elegant setting of The Peninsula Chicago. with all, and still… presents an opportunity for the viewer to experience the works at an aesthetic or conceptual level and then interpret their own meaning.”
The Peninsula Chicago contributes to the Art in Resonance program by featuring a rotating exhibit of local and national artwork year-round, with “with all, and still …” the third installment. A featured dessert, Chocolate Obsession, from The Lobby or in-room dining incorporates the symbols and shapes in the artwork into its design.
“The hotel embraces opportunities to support the local community and celebrates Chicago as a destination whenever possible,” said Maria Zec, regional vice president and general manager, The Peninsula Chicago. “Bob Faust’s approach to bringing Chicago neighborhoods to life through an unexpected vibrant series of contemporary art panels completely transforms this area in the hotel. We are delighted to feature Bob Faust for our next Art in Resonance initiative, and to offer the installation to the public through 2021.”
The Hotel AMERON Zurich Bellerive au Lac, forged from the collaborative efforts of interior design firm Monoplan AG and other cutting-edge design firms, bills itself as a celebration of the 1920s and ‘30s aesthetic. The story behind it is compelling as the building dates to 1928 and has connections with the early days of Switzerland's movie industry. However, there are several fun Mid-Century Modern and late 20th-century design touches in the public and private areas. Clearly, it's going for the "modern luxury" vibe Millennial and Gen-X business and leisure travelers look for when seeking a quality smaller property with a great location.
