We are excited to share that Fairmont Pacific Rim has been included in Vogue.com’s ‘No Ticket Required: A Tour of Vancouver’s Public Art story. The article, written by John Ortved, highlights the best way to tour the city’s public art installations and Fairmont Pacific Rim’s extensive art collection.
“The art program is spread throughout the city. A walking tour can start at your hotel, depending on where you stay. The Fairmont Pacific Rim boasts a remarkable art program (and offers guests an audio tour to help see it) with works from Liam Gillick and Fred Herzog, among others. The exterior courtyard boasts an intricate light installation by Omer Arbel for Bocci, while at one corner of the building’s exterior, on floors five through 22, Liam Gillick’s two-foot tall concrete letters, in Helvetica, repeat the phrase “lyingontopofabuilding…”. Inside, lose yourself in Adad Hannah’s 2013 video piece, Black Water Ophelia, which gives appropriated buoyancy to an 1858 painting of the tragic Shakespearean character.”
