‘I thought there was supposed to be an art exhibition going on here’, my husband Patrick said right after we entered the Palacio de Cristal at the Retiro Park in Madrid. He stared at a space that was virtually empty. ‘Eeeh…this is the exhibition’, I answered. We both laughed and walked around in awe of SPLENDIDE HOTEL devised by French artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster for the Reina Sofia museum. We didn’t stay too long, though. It was August, it was noon, it was Madrid – I looked in the bathroom mirror about halfway through and let me tell you, it was not a pretty sight.
You have until October 19, 2014 to visit SPLENDIDE HOTEL – make sure not to go at noon like I did! 😉
