From intimate private performances to mixing and mingling with musicians and photographers at artist salons, Quin Arts is energized by a series of creative and inspiring happenings.
WULF TREU exhibit debut & artist salon
Figurative Destruction was an exhibition from the acclaimed artist, Wulf Treu. Coinciding with the Frieze Art Fair on Randall’s Island, this Quin Arts exhibition featured dramatic large format oil paintings on canvas, mixed media works on wood, and a video art wall installation highlighting the artist's neon works. For the first time, Treu presented studies on paper from his body of work in sculpture, painting, and mixed media. These were grouped into five stories, each containing four original oil, pastel, pencil and watercolor works, affording collectors and guests a special opportunity to acquire Treu's work at an unprecedented price point. Figurative Destruction opened on May 14th and was curated by DK Johnston.
ROBERT CHRISTIAN MALMBERG exhibit debut & artist salon
INcognito, a new fine photography and mixed media series by NYC alternative process photographer Robert Christian Malmberg, opened on March 5th and was curated by DK Johnston of The Arts Fund. Hand colored and toned by the artist, Malmberg's new series is a colorful and dynamic assemblage of macro photography paired with iconic New York City street scenes.
Magnum Photos is a photographic co-operative of great diversity and distinction owned by its photographer-members. With powerful individual vision, Magnum photographers chronicle the world and interpret its peoples, events, issues, and personalities.

CORNO exhibit debut & reception
Co-curated by Channing Norton of MOCA and DK Johnston of the Arts Fund, Creative Chaos opened with a by-invitation-only reception on September 17th and was on display at the lobby-level exhibit for the public until October 6th.
Curated by DK Johnston of The Arts Fund, Escaping Paris featured 10 large scale original Blek le Rat paintings, as well as an edition of 25 unique monotypes with lithography that the artist created at the New York Academy of Art during his tenure.
The Quin’s permanent collection includes Blek le Rat’s “Love America” on the 14th floor and loaned works the “Great Wedding” on the second floor, “What Has Been Seen Cannot Be Unseen” in the boardroom, and “Tango” in the lobby. Most recently, the artist commemorated this collaboration on the Quin’s façade with an image of Andy Warhol.
The Quin was proud to host an exclusive preview of Eric Zener’s Gallery Henoch show as part of Quin Arts’ residency and artist salon program. This Quin Arts’ exhibit featured an original oil painting and 11 resins of Zener’s most popular pieces. Mr. Zener also created a dynamic medley of images that incorporated new work from the Henoch exhibit for the Quin’s video art wall.
Ms. Siemens' latest visit to New York included a performance at Carnegie Hall as Concert Master for National Sacred Honor Choir and an intimate private recital in the Quin for guests and New York music aficionados as part of the hotel's ground-breaking Quin Arts program.
