Motel Cali




This piece was part of the Complete Art Experience Project: 24-Hours exhibition on Sept 21, 2005, one of the satellite exhibitions of the Beijing Biennale. A group of 10 artist presented an exhibition that ran for only 24 hours from 3pm on Sept 21 to 3pm on Sept 22 in Studio 1 of the Beijing Film Studio.

I set up a stage and solicited for variations on a theme of "Hotel California." I solicited for bands, djs, poets, computer noise generators, spoken word artists, interpretive dancers, musical sawers - whatever- to come and play this song to death. I hate this song as much as the next person. I was hoping this 24 hour non-stop "Hotel California" will kill the tune completely.

This blog entry describes the exprience in more detail.

Video clips of all the lovely Beijingers who came out to support this piece will be available here shortly. A heartfelt thank you goes out to each and every one of them, and to everyone who came out to see the show. It wouldn't have been possible without you.
