Curator Chris Doyle has gathered forty-five artists to create short videos, each set in a different Connecticut hotel, motel, or inn. Ranching from documentary to fiction, each short work presents a hotel room as a fascinating backdrop for the artist’s imagination. 50,000 Beds offers a unique opportunity to experience the creativity and culture that Connecticut has to offer. This exhibition marks the first collaboration between Artspace, Real Art Ways in Hartford, and the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield.
