Question: What happens when you turn forty-five video artists loose in forty-five hotel rooms across the State of Connecticut? Answer: the exhibition 50,000 Beds. Organized by artist Chris Doyle, 50,000 Beds commissioned 45 new video works to be exhibited in specially designed "multi-screen" galleries at three venues: Artspace (opening July 20th), Real Art Ways (opening July 21st) and The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum (opening July 22). The exhibition focuses on the hotel room as a site filled with narrative potential. Familiar yet foreign, a hotel room combines experiences of both intimacy and anonymity. The short videos will show a diverse range of artistic responses and themes. Amongst participating artists are Marina Zurkow, Jennifer and Kevin McCoy, Eve Sussman, Ricardo Miranda Zuniga, Nina Katchadourian and many more.
