Devoted to art and contemporary creation and borrowing inspiration from the aesthetics of MiMo—Miami Modern—the new Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel, introduces a whole new way of visiting the island, surrounded by contemporary art.
The hotel will host an ongoing Art Paradiso curated programme. Directed by the artist and curator Iñaki Domingo and the photographer and filmmaker Diana Kunst, the programme will present a range of projects focusing on urban art and performance, an art gallery housed in the hotel itself and a programme of micro-residencies for artists.
One of the core features of the hotel’s art programme is Adda Gallery Ibiza, a contemporary gallery specialized in street art run by Anna Dimitrova. “Adda Gallery Ibiza wants to give the public on the island a better insight into curated street art and to provide a showcase for young international artists producing exciting new work,” says Dimitrova.
The gallery’s first project is called Technicolor, a group show bringing together over 10 artists from different countries, providing a taster of the gallery’s global reach. Among the artists showing at this inaugural exhibition are Pro176 (France), Uriginal (Barcelona), Nuria Mora (Madrid), Kenor (Barcelona), GR170 (Barcelona), Nasepop (Argentina), Smithe (Mexico) and Fefe Talavera (Brazil). The show goes on view from 7 June, the same day as Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel opens its doors.
To further bolster the promotion of young, avant-garde artists, Art Paradiso is also organizing Zero Suite Residencies, a programme of short-duration residencies aimed at bringing a series of leading international artists to the island.
The programme will take place one weekend per month in Zero Suite, the hotel’s most special room. Located in the lobby, it consists of a transparent cube where artists who don’t mind being seen from all angles will be offered free stays. The guest artists invited on the micro-residencies will inhabit the glass-walled Zero Suite, where they will create their interventions while soaking up the experience of Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel and the atmosphere that permeates the island.
The hotel’s art programme includes collaborative projects with several contemporary artists who will exhibit their works in the hotel rooms, making each one a totally unique space for guests.
The artists already working on the project include Marcos Torres, Pau Sanz i Vila and Thani Mara, as well as Yoko Honda and Marylou Faure. This mix of international artists was chosen by the curatorial team after meticulous research and assessing the quality of the works. Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel aspires to become a benchmark for the local art scene. The new hotel’s mission is to transform and expand the island’s tourist offer, programming exhibitions and activities showcasing the latest happening trends in art.
The Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel is the latest project of Concept Hotel Group. Over the last six years, it has introduced its new concept in accommodation into the island, based on impeccable design by the architecture and interiors studio ilmiodesign. Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel now joins Santos, Tropicana, Dorado and Cubanito as the group’s fifth concept hotel. Though five very different experiences, they all share the common denominator of uniqueness and innovation, where guests always come first.
