A Non-Profit Hotel for Artists Will Offer a Creative Solution to London's Expensive Accommodation

by Phoebe Stubbs
London poses specific and difficult problems for artists’ accommodation. It’s the capital of culture in the UK with more galleries, museums, theatres, and events spaces than any other city. It’s also by far the most unaffordable place for creative people to live. As a result, many artists choose to move away, and only come in for exhibitions or events and find accommodation prices so exorbitant that they end up crashing on friends’ sofas.

Closed Satellite

by Jessica Powers
Bellevue, Washington’s only progressive contemporary art space, Open Satellite, closed its doors on March 19. Started initially through the private funding of developer John Su (it was located in the ground floor of a condo building he owns) in 2007, this year it attempted to transition to a non-profit model to continue existence even after Su decided to cease his support.
