Jumeirah Essex House
Located in the heart of New York’s cultural centre and at the base of Central Park, Jumeirah Essex House has long been collaborating with art institutions and businesses as part of its ongoing commitment to supporting the diversity of innovative expression and to promoting outstanding artists.
In celebration of The Armory Show - which takes place in New York from March 8th-11th - and the international art contingent it draws, Jumeirah Essex House will debut a special exhibition of contemporary Brazilian photography, in association with 1500 Gallery, the first gallery in the world with an explicit focus on Brazilian artists.
On view through the spring, and open to the public inside the hotel’s Gallery at South Gate, the exhibit will feature contemporary and vintage works by some of the region’s most exciting and promising emergent photographers such as Claudio Edinger, Antonio Augusto Fontes and Bruno Cals.
The installation will include a range of thematic approaches and styles that reveal the richness and diversity of this group of photographers, while showcasing the majesty and magic of their common subject – Brazil.
Jumeirah Essex House is considered North America’s Leading Business Hotel by the World Travel Awards.
