Checking into France’s “Hotel 128”

Checking into France’s “Hotel 128”

Right in the heart of the 13 buildings of Street Art City, (click HERE to read our article from yesterday), you’ll find Hotel 128.

The 4-story building, 14 meters high, 53 meters long, 11 meters wide, is home to 128 rooms  – thus the name. A derelict structure reserved for fulsome installations all individually painted by an international roster of artists invited in residency to paint by the co-founders Gilles and Sylvie.

Paid tours are available, artists are invited, and some programming happens on the grounds just to keep the conditions of the property cared for. Unlike many “artist takeover” buildings, none of these are slotted for destruction any time soon, so the artists are going to continue to explore their ideas for the foreseeable future and you are welcome to check-in anytime.

Here are some detail shots from a selection of rooms from BSA contributor Lluis Olive Bulbena.
