Ace Hotel New York Artists in Residence


Ace AIR has become a staple of Ace Hotel New York's cultural programs. Since 2014, the program has hosted over 250 artists for one-night stays which turn hotel rooms into temporary studios.

Artists have filled rooms with mylar balloons, broadcasted psychedelic videos, painted oyster shells, collected beach glass, slept, hired 3rd parties to produce work on their behalf, wrote poems, collected recipes, wrote and recording music, drafted short stories, played solitaire and more. 

The program encourages the use of public domain dedication, CC-0 and other progressive licenses, and apart from the rights to redisplay projects across it's properties, does not hoard IP.

It is continually changing, always with the aim of being beneficial to artists.
